Financial and fire code concerns have delayed Defiance City Councils approval of a plan to help restore the Valentine Theater. An ordinance committing annual funds for the Valentines restoration and operation was tabled by council Tuesday night after a second reading. Meanwhile, council approved an ordinance providing for the issuance of bonds if necessary for demolishing the old Defiance Hospital building and let lie ordinances approving the temporary 2004 budget and establishing the Andrew L. Tuttle Museum.
