Several bricks fall off Cornerstone

With a few days to go till bids are opened, bricks fell from the Cornerstone Community Building Friday night.

Mayor Deb Klein got a call Friday that several bricks had come down and she was joined by members of the City Council to inspect.

The building is a renovation project for the city and bids for the renovation will be opened Tuesday, Aug. 27 at 2 p.m.

The bricks between the two upper windows on the front have come down. The City blocked off half the street due to some of the bricks landing near a parked car.

Klein said it doesn’t appear any more bricks fell Saturday or Sunday. She said the building is sagging more and the cracks are bigger.
