Mayor to find out more on tallest downtown building

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro city leaders want to work on the tallest building in Downtown Jonesboro.

Over the past few years, the former Citizen's Bank building went into disarray, but Mayor Harold Perrin said he now plans to travel to St. Louis to speak with U.S. Bank.

The company is the current trust holder over the building and since the lease owner is no longer making payments, responsibility falls to U.S. Bank.

The mayor told the company about the improvements needed to bring the building up to code.

He said he hopes to hear from the company next week and schedule a meeting.
