A Beaumont man is filing for a restraining order against the city of Beaumont in an attempt to prevent the city from demolishing his home.

Patty Lee filed the restraining order Aug. 11 in Jefferson County District Court against the city of Beaumont, which has scheduled the demolition of his home at 685 Irma St., Beaumont.

The suit alleges the city declared Lee's home to be dilapidated but Lee wants to remodel and renovate it for its historical and sentimental value. It is unclear when the home is scheduled to be demolished, according to the suit.

Lee is representing himself.

Jefferson County District Court case number D-197425.
