Panel seeks offers for old Franklin city hall

A Franklin board is requesting new proposals from buyers interested in the city’s historic former city hall.

The Franklin Redevelopment Commission is asking $212,500 for the building at 55 W. Madison St., which has been vacant since city offices moved in 2009.

Proposals and offers are due to the city by Feb. 17 and will be reviewed by members of the commission. Members aren’t restricting their search to a particular buyer. Members have said in the past that a restaurant would be a good fit for the building, especially since it is near downtown attractions such as the Artcraft Theatre.
