RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) — The city of Richmond is nearing a decision whether to spend $120,000 to repair a brick wall that’s on the verge of collapse in the eastern Indiana city’s historic district.
The Richmond Redevelopment Commission is expected to vote Wednesday on whether to approve the funding request. The $120,000 would go toward repairing the deteriorating wall in Richmond’s Historic Depot District.
Commission member Steve Stevens says he hopes the commission can move ahead with a decision Wednesday. He tells the Palladium-Item that the wall “needs to be fixed.”
More than 75 people attended the commission’s July 8 meeting, and the vast majority favored the funding request. The commission voted at that meeting to postpone its consideration of the funding request until July 22.
