Future of the Chardonnay house still uncertain

Posted: Updated:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- The future of the Rochester Chardonnay House is still uncertain.

Two weeks ago the demolition permit for the more than 100-year-old structure went before the City Council, and at that point they decided to wait two weeks to see if another buyer for the property would step up.

Now two weeks later, some at the council meeting on Monday asked the public hearing on the issue be reopened because new information had come to light.

Based on the public testimony from two weeks ago however, the City Attorney found that repairing the building for reuse was not economically feasible.

Ultimately the City Council decided to reopen the public hearing on May 5.

They say that will be the day they make the final decision.
