TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - City inspectors pulled the plug on upgrades to an east Topeka grocery store after multiple violations were found.

Spokeswoman Molly Hadfield said during the inspection, unsafe building conditions were uncovered at Mi Pueblito Meat Market and a “stop work” order was issued.

She said concerns were found due to unlicensed contractors working on the building.

Hadfield said a meeting between city inspectors and the property’s owners was scheduled to happen on Thursday morning, Oct. 14.

She said licensed contractors will be required to complete the work.

The building was going through an upgrade of its mechanical, plumbing and electrical infrastructure.
