Council puts talk of new city hall on hold

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Efforts in Lexington to get a new city hall are on hold after a vote by the Urban County Council at Tuesday’s work session.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports Councilwoman Susan Lamb made a motion to cancel a planned Thursday meeting to talk about Phoenix Park as a possible site for a new government center.

The newspaper reports Lamb said the council should probably wait until the next mayor is elected before resuming talk about a new city hall.

Mayor Jim Gray leaves office in December.  He will be replaced by either Ronnie Bastin or Linda Gorton, who face off in the November election.

Most of the 15-member Urban County Council is also up for re-election.
