Plan for Valentine Theater restoration set aside

By TODD HELBERG City Editor Published:

A plan for involving Defiance City Hall in the restoration of the Valentine Theater was set aside Tuesday night by city council, but perhaps only temporarily. An ordinance committing annual funds for the Valentines restoration and operation was let lie by council after a first reading. That was one of only two ordinances on councils agenda Tuesday. The other, an ordinance relinquishing City Halls interest in a southside alley, was passed. Also, council discussed its long-term visioning with the focus on a possible south bypass in the Hire Road area.
