Pine Bluff leaders at odds over cleanup & demolition of downtown collapsed buildings


PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - Two more buildings in downtown Pine Bluff collapsed over the weekend, forcing city leaders to close a section of Main Street because of public safety concerns. Monday afternoon the city council voted on an ordinance that would begin to address the clean-up process, and as tempers flared it became clear that the council was not going to back the mayor's push to hire a contractor and start the job.

Meaning, for now, the rubble will stay right where it is and Main Street will remain closed between 4th and 5th streets downtown.
