The owner of an old barge on the Tennessee River is getting more pressure to clean up his property.
The President and CEO of the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce has now sent a letter to the Army Corps of Engineers.
Ron Harr says the old barge is the last remaining eyesore on the waterfront.
Owner Allen Casey wants to turn it into a floating restaurant.
But he's facing a lot of opposition.
Just last week, Mayor Andy Berke asked the Corps to pull the owner's permit.
And Army Corps Officials have now given Casey 90 days to bring his property into compliance.
