Festus receiving ideas for the barn project

(Festus) The City of Festus recently received its first submitted concepts of what the barn in Crites Memorial Park could look like as a future reception hall. The Festus City Council along with Mayor Sam Richards decided to use some remaining ARPA funds to renovate the barn a few months ago. Festus City Administrator Greg Camp says what they presented by one design firm was pretty impressive.

Camp says the right renovations would open up the possibilities of what the barn could be used for.

Camp says the improvements and changes would be staggered over time.

There is another design firm scheduled to meet with the city council later this month. Camp expects some early renovation work on the barn to get started later this year.
