CORNERSTONE WORKS ON ELKS
Monday, August 04, 2014 11:00 AM
Peter Ellis, a member of the Cornerstone Society Inc., scrapes paint off of the wood trim at the top of the Elks Building in downtown Madison on Sunday. Members of the preservation group volunteered over the weekend to repaint the trim on the building. In May, the city agreed to drop a pending lawsuit that would determine if it had the authority to demolish the fire-damaged building. The city, in an agreement with building owner Carolyn Barr - owner of ReBarr Restoration LLC - and Cornerstone, agreed to rescind the demolition order passed by the Board of Works once mechanical connections between the roof framing and the masonry structure and gutters to the downspouts were completed. That work has not yet been done. At the time of the agreement, Mayor Damon Welch said it would be difficult for the city to prove in court that the building is unsafe. "Therefore," he said, "I cannot justify spending further funds litigating the issue. (Staff photo by Steve Dickersonfirstname.lastname@example.org)
