Council balks at $10.8 million Crump request


Follow The Republic:


Funding for a Crump Theater renovation has turned into a cart vs. horse issue.

The Columbus City Council doesn't want to decide about allocating more than $10 million in taxpayer money to fund the renovation until a business plan is in place for the 125-year-old facility.

The Columbus Redevelopment Commission doesn't want to allocate $20,000 for a study to create a Crump business plan without assurances that the city council is open to allocating money to renovate the theater.

In the meantime, the Crump's owner, the Columbus Capital Foundation, is nearly out of money to keep utilities on in the building.
