NEWPORT-Questions concerning the Tanner building were
raised at the City Council workshop held Tuesday but answers remained elusive.
Roland Dykes III, chairman of a new Tanner building group
called the Tanner Preservation Alliance, said there remained unanswered whether
a senior citizens group has the leasing rights to the building.
"I was told there is a lease. Carlene (Robinson
also) thinks there is one."
The question of whether a legal document exists regarding
senior citizens use was discussed at the workshop.
Though that issue was unresolved, Dykes stated,
"Right now, our purpose is to preserve the building."
