Old police department building back on the market

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Plans to turn the old Meridian Police Department building into a brewery won't happen after all.

The building was purchased earlier this year from the city with Threefoot Brewing planning to use it. City council members said Tuesday the original buyer no longer wants the building.

Ward 4 Councilwoman Kim Houston says she is against the city investing any more money into the building to try to sell it.

"We have spent countless amounts of money already," said Houston. "That is why we are choosing to sell it. We need that money, even if it's $3,000. That is $3,000 we could use towards something else."

Houston encourages anyone who might be interested in purchasing the building to call city hall for more information.
