Questions remain about future of downtown Jefferson City building

You’re not hearing much yet on the future of a downtown Jefferson City building.

The structure at the corner of High and Madison partially collapsed last month.

Councilman Dave Kemna says he’s not sure whether the owner will be able to re-do the badly damaged building.

“The city has been pretty good with working with the property owner,” Kemna says. “They had to stabilize the building. I know that a lot of the lawyers were still kind of scrambling because they files in there and it was not safe to go in.”

The building dates to the 1800’s. Staffers in the law offices at the location were not hurt.
