SURVEYING THE DAMAGE — Kenton Mayor Danny Jowers (right) and Vice Mayor Wade Simpson recently discussed the options concerning the collapsing old City Hall building in downtown Kenton. The building has been deeded to the city, but demolition will most likely damage the buildings it shares a wall and beams with. The city is now seeking to buy the two adjacent buildings and demolish those as well. The vacant buildings pose a serious risk to the surrounding businesses, the streets and pedestrians should they collapse.
