A contract has finally been awarded for the demolition of St. Joseph County's filthiest property.

Officials first discovered the home in the 52000 block of Ida Street in April.

There were no people living there, but 39 cats were.

Only one bid to demolish the home was received, and it came in way over budget.

Nonetheless, that bid for $26,000 was awarded on Tuesday.
The owner of the home also faces criminal charges of animal neglect.
