On Wednesday, Mayor Rob Duncan provided a few details about the possible re-opening of Marco’s Pizza.
The restaurant was destroyed by fire in September 2015.
Construction workers have been spotted recently at Marco’s.
“It’s been a slow process,” the mayor said about the rebuilding of Marco’s.
“I know they would have liked to have it open already,” he added.
Part of the renovation process might be responsible for the delay.
“I know they want to cut out an area on the side of the building for a drive-thru,” the mayor said. “They also want to add an expanded sit-in dining area. They are working hard on it.”
Duncan said no re-opening date for Marco’s Pizza has been set.
In another location, there have been recent signs of life at 203 Cline St., the former home to the Mexican restaurant, Los Buenos Amigos.
At Tuesday night’s meeting, city council members were informed a liquor license had been applied for by Gustavo Avalos Serrano for the 203 Cline St. location. The paperwork indicated the business would be called, Casa Bravos.
The mayor was making calls Wednesday to gather more information about this possible new Mexican restaurant.
Los Buenos Amigos had closed its doors at that location in March after opening in summer 2014.
On Wednesday, workers could be seen painting the walls inside 203 Cline St.
The workers didn’t provide much information about the restaurant other than to say the new owner was out of town on business.
