BRUCE, Miss. (WTVA) - The city of Bruce is tearing down an old building in the square, to put a park in place of it, Mayor Rudy Pope confirmed.
The building used to be the home of the Western Autoshop. It has not been used in two to three years.
The roof of the shop has caved in and become a hazard to everyone in the community.
The city is now in the process of buying the old building.
"We're going to put a little park in there, you know with benches and some grass, so people can sit around and talk like they did in the old days," Pope said. "We're trying to make Bruce a better place to live and visit."
Hopes are to get this process started by the beginning of next year.
