Officials get power to evict Cherry Orchard tenants

A Champaign County judge granted a temporary restraining order Thursday that gives public health officials the power to evict tenants living at an apartment complex between Rantoul and  Thomasboro and ordered the managers jailed until the complex’s problems are repaired. 


Condemned apartments still occupied

It’s been six weeks since a Champaign County judge ordered the closure of an apartment complex between Rantoul and Thomasboro.

But public health officials say people continue to live at Cherry Orchard apartments. Indeed, as of Thursday, June 2, there were several cars parked in front of a far east building, which had a new dumpster nearby and kids playing in the yard.
