Work continues on the elevator at Columbus City Hall. Mayor Jim Lienhoop says he’s hopeful that it will be back in service by the close of business on Friday.

The elevator was knocked out of service a few weeks ago after storms disrupted power in the area.

Due to the elevator being unusable, city officials have moved all public meetings to other locations. The Mayor says that will continue next week when the Board of Public Works & Safety, as well as city council, meet Wednesday at Hamilton Center on 25th Street. The Board of Works at 10 a.m. and City Council at 6 p.m.

City offices are closed Tuesday for the Independence Day Holiday.
