JC council approves $300k to demolish downtown buildings

A court battle over a collapsing downtown Jefferson City building and an attached building will probably end up costing taxpayers in town.

The Jefferson City Council moved ahead with a plan on Monday night to spend $300,000 to tear down the two buildings at the corner of High and Madison.

The corner structure on East High St. partially collapsed in the summer of 2018, and damaged the building next door.

Councilmen could vote on a demolition contract at their next meeting.
