Council Grove building no longer standing

A collapsed building in Council Grove is no longer standing.

It’s a story Kansas First News first reported early last week.

The city manager says the building in the city’s historic district was demolished and the site was cleared Monday.

The building’s owner was unable to pay contractor fees.

The city took over the project and will run the nearly 200,000 dollar demolition cost through real estate fees.

Riley Construction in Manhattan handled the demo.
