About 70 Scotty's Burger Joint employees and their families plan to attend the Columbus Redevelopment Commission meeting Thursday, voicing support for a Detour American Grille restaurant to operate in the space where Scotty's was located through Dec. 31.
According to a press release on behalf of MSCB co-owner Mark Maddox, the employees plan to plead with Mayor Kristen Brown to allow them to keep their jobs.
“I need this (job) to support my children and pay my bills. Without it, my family could lose our home,” Sommer Hilderbrand, an employee at the Columbus Detour, said in the press release. “We are asking the city to allow this restaurant to reopen next week.”
The Redevelopment Commission meeting starts at 6 p.m. and will be held in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 123 Washington St.
