On The Beat Industry News In Brief

The city of Franklin is offering two vacant buildings for sale, including the 1936 post office that served as Franklin’s City Hall from the early 1980s until 2008, when severe flooding forced the city to move.

Mayor Fred Paris is suggesting a restaurant as a tenant for the former city hall, which sits at 55 W. Madison St. about a block from the Artcraft Theatre and the Willard Restaurant.

The city said the property appraised at $225,000 to $275,000. The other building for sale, a former planning building at 44 N. Jackson St., appraised for $85,000 to $110,000.

Bids for one or both of the parcels will be accepted from Feb. 17 through March 16 at the Clerk-Treasurer’s Office at 70 E. Monroe St.
