City to seek demolition bids on Chautauqua

No decision made on building's future

(Continued)

SHELBYVILLE, IL. —

Continuing debate between council members and comments from audience members made the decision hard for the council. 

"It boils down to the city's going to help us or it's not going to work," said Chautauqua committee chairman Wayne Gray. " It's a long term project. It (Chautauqua building) is salvageable, but it takes money."

Gray announced that he is resigning from the committee and asked the council to recognize the work of the committee members.

"There were a ton of people doing a lot of work. I would like to see something from the city thanking the committee. They are the ones that did it," Gray said.

The Council agreed.

The Council also agreed that no money raised by the committee would be used on demolition if that decision is made. Money donated and pledged to the preservation project itself will be refunded to the donors as per committee records. Money raised through activities and raffles will not be refunded. The city will work with the CPA to work with donation refunds.

Other actions by the Council will be reported in Friday, March 8, Daily Union.
