News is not good for the deteriorated condition of the Blue Building’s auditorium and gymnasium. McMinnville officials have voted in committee to do away with both.During a joint meeting of Building and Grounds Committee and Finance Committee on Tuesday night, members Aldermen Ken Smith, Mike Neal and Rick Barnes voted unanimously to recommend removal to the full board. Absent from the meeting was Alderman Ben Newman.The decision was made after reviewing a report by Peter Metts, president of AEI, that says the main section of the building is in “reasonable condition.”
