Old pool room coming down

Workmen from Pyles Construction are razing the former pool room, former Shepherd Shop building next to the Municipal Building on Campbellsville Street.
Pyles Construction won the contract to tear down the building and dispose of the materials with a $28,000 bid. The building, now owned by the City of Columbia, was purchased for approximately $38,000. It most recently housed the Shepherd Shop, and more famously, once was the home of Bob's PoolRoom, noted for great hamburgers.

City Clerk Jane Akin Keltner said that the contract with Pyles Construction calls for a two week demolition, but that she understands that the work will be done this week.

The city is studying options for the property. Under study is the possibility of a new headquarters for the Columbia Police Department and a relocation of the City Police Dispatch from the Adair County Jail to the new headquarters. Such a move would make way for enlargement the the Mayor's office.
