City commissioners voted to begin construction of a new fire hall and a new city hall. Bids will be accepted May 24 for wrecking the Andrews building on the north side of the square to make room for the new city hall. It also was decided to purchase three lots on North Washington Street from Willard Horde and James McFadden for $6,000 as the site for the new fire station.
