Should the city renovate the first floor of the Blue Building, renovate the entire structure, or level it?During a Safety Committee meeting Monday night, Aldermen Mike Neal and Rick Barnes voted to recommend for the Building and Grounds Committee to consider obtaining a cost analysis to renovate the main floor, as well as any necessary work to the remaining floors, so the city can compare that to the cost for building a new structure.“I don’t agree with it, but I’ll vote for it in order to get moving forward,” said Barnes. “Maybe some day we can make a decision on it. I would prefer renovating the entire building.”
