The 1871 building was found to have the trusses above the auditorium to be rotted and slipped. The building inspector declared it unsafe and closed the building. City offices and staff were temporarily relocated to other sites throughout the city. In response to the neglect, the city formed the City Hall Restoration Commission to oversee the building’s maintenance.
