COLUMBUS, Ind. — Responsibility for the appraisal of an historic downtown Columbus building that has been slated to become a restaurant for more than a year-and-a-half will fall on the Columbus City Council.
Meanwhile, the Columbus Redevelopment Commission plans to wait to see what if any role the City Council wants it to play in the process.
Mayor Kristen Brown has said getting an appraisal of the old Pump House, next to the Second Street bridge on Lindsey Street, would give the city valuable information so it can perhaps find other companies interested in the building and follow up with chef Daniel Orr to see if there is a mutual interest in terminating his lease.
