Judge orders repairs for Matteson's declining Lincoln Mall

Lincoln Mall opened in Matteson in the 1970's and has been in decline for years.

The village wants it closed because of what officials call structural, fire and safety code violations.

Late Thursday afternoon, a judge ordered the owner of the mall to give control to a receiver to handle day-to-day operations and repairs.

The owner provided $100,000 for the fix-up efforts.

Village officials say they are pleased with the ruling and happy repairs will be completed.
