Structural engineer says 3 buildings not safe, will have to come down

By Rich Bauer, Managing Editor

A structural engineer told city officials on Tuesday that the three buildings at the northwest corner of Gallatin and Fifth streets is not safe and will have to come down.

But it will likely be some time before those three buildings will be demolished, due to legal issues, and until they can be torn down, the east half of the 500 block of Gallatin Street and north half of the 100 block of South Fifth Street will be blocked off.
