Veterans Memorial

Franklin County officials say the demolition of Veterans Memorial in downtown Columbus will take several months longer than expected, delaying the construction of a statewide memorial planned for the site.


Franklin County commissioners are scheduled to vote today on a nearly 900 thousand dollar contract to raze Veterans Memorial downtown as part of a redevelopment of the site. 

Franklin County Commissioners today approved a deal to raze Veterans Memorial downtown, despite calls from local vets and the facility's board to renovate the structure.
