Progress: City is moving forward on ex-bank building, bare wall

June 20, 2013

    City officials are moving forward on revamping the recently purchased former bank building downtown and putting a new face on the bare wall across the street, a wall left open when the former sweeper shop/Holthouse Drug Co. building was demolished.
    MartinRiley, an engineering and architectural firm in Fort Wayne, has been hired for both projects, it was learned at Tuesday night's Decatur City Council meeting.
    City Engineer Nate Rumschlag told council that the firm has been hired at a cost of $19,350 for a "study phase" of the former bank building, last used by the Adams Health Network. MartinRiley will provide 3-D drawings of the building, an engineering analysis "that will provide us with quite a bit of information," according to Rumschlag.
