Mitchell VFW Discussed At City Council Meeting
Mitchell VFW Discussed At City Council Meeting

A committee will be formed by the Mitchell City Council and the Mitchell VFW to deal with the VFW building situation.  The committee will consist of Councilmen Dan Allen and Phil Carlson, Mayor Ken Tracy, VFW Commander Pat Ziegler, and two other VFW members.  The VFW re-opened over the weekend after having been closed since mid-May due to the pending demolition of the adjoining building which once housed the Longhorn Bar.  A shared wall was deemed unstable, and city officials proceeded cautiously in studying and addressing the situation, however it forced the VFW to be closed for over a month.  The item was on last night’s Mitchell City Council agenda as a discussion topic, and some members of the VFW were able to vent frustration.  Architect Larry Jirsa, who has been advising the city on the project, says this was a dangerous situation.  He said there are some options, but money is an issue.  VFW member Marvin Schuldt believes the current building cannot be fixed.  The VFW will meet tonight at 7:30 to discuss its options.
