Chillicothe, MO (2010-06-01) Discussions continue in Chillicothe on trying to preserve the old Leeper Hotel.
The historic downtown structure is the focus of talks between the City and the Main Street Chillicothe organization.
The Leeper has deteriorated over the decades, and city officials are expressing concern about safety.
Main Street Director Crystal Narr says her group is interested in having an option on the vacant property to work on getting someone to fill it.
A recent inspection by Chillicothe City Engineer showed the roof of the Leeper has decking and even ceiling joists exposed.
Talks with the City continue.
