Council approves first step in RTC demo process [UPDATED]Published 8:47pm Monday, May 7, 2012 Updated 8:53am Tuesday, May 8, 2012
Around 200 people crowded into and overflowed out of the Fergus Falls City Council chamber on Monday night, most of them there to urge the council to not move forward with demolition plans on the Regional Treatment Center. However, the council still unanimously moved that city staff draw up plans and specifications to demolish all of the Kirkbride complex except for the center tower building.
The council also approved a community task force to help come up with an aggressive marketing strategy for the building, in hopes of reaching new developers for the project.
