Within days of being contacted by the city, a new construction company was in downtown Franklin inspecting the facade work it was going to take over.

Terstep Co. came to Franklin to look at what had been done and was ready to get started working on buildings the next day, Mayor Joe McGuinness said. Before the company can begin repairing bricks and building new storefronts, the city has to figure out how much is left of the $650,000 planned to be spent on the project.

The new contractor will finish the job started by Advanced Restoration Contractors, which did minimal work on a $512,000 construction project to restore historic facades on eight downtown businesses.
