West Hotel Slated for Demolition

A fire at the West Hotel won't change the City's plans for the building. The vacant hotel was recently acquired by the City because the owners didn't pay the taxes. Taranis Contracting group has been awarded the demolition contract for the building and work will start next week. The building's neighbour the Army Navy Air Force Veterans Hall is also set to be demolished. The city acquired the buildings as part as their plan to improve the appearance of neglected properties. The West Hotel building was under security watch at the time, and the cause of the fire is still unknown.
