The council voted July 10 to seek bids for demolition but also preserve the stained glass windows in the building’s chapel. The lowest bid for demolition came in at $147,00 and the cost for removal, repair and crating of the stained glass is expected to cost $20,000.

City staff is also recommending contingency funding for the demolition bid so that the demolition costs do not exceed $272,000.

Brent Walker, director of Parks and Recreation, told the council in March it would likely cost more than $350,000 to tear the building down.

The council voted 6 to 1 to demolish the theater with Mayor Denis Shortal casting the lone no vote.
