Brewpub approved for former city hall

A city board approved an initial plan to turn the former Franklin city hall into a restaurant and brewery.

Redevelopment commission members approved the idea and now need to work out details with Old Post Holdings to sell 55 W. Madison St. and determine how much in tax dollars the city board will offer to help renovate it.

The building was built as a post office and was city hall until it flooded in June 2008 and city offices moved in early 2009. The building has been vacant since.
