Fighting Over Mission Bowl Demolition

The demolition debate over Mission Bowl

MISSION, KS (KCTV) -- After complaints, building inspectors found the front door of Mission Bowl unlocked and not secure. They said that could entice vagrants and vandals. From outside, you'll see busted boards, torn tarps and shattered glass. Building inspection photos show what's left on the inside of the once beloved business.

I don't understand what the "debate" is about. It is a dangerous building and the city should have the power to hire a contractor to tear this building down and levey the cost against the property taxes. Problem solved.

Just leave it be and call it "affordable housing".
