City Council voted unanimously to push the Arrowview Hotel towards demolition.
Building owner Ray Latourneau said he is contracting engineers and architects to help him save the heritage building.
Mayor Mike Ruttan said there’s no saving the structure, which is already falling down and endangering neighbouring properties.
Ruttan warned Latourneau that he may be receiving bad advice about any ability to restore the building.
He now has one week to demolish the structure before the city implements a process to do it for him.
