the current building? city hall is the one we know as building one. it's where city council meets, where you can pay a bill to the city treasurer, and where the commissioner of the revenue collects your property taxes. public works director phillp davenport says the 50 year old building has significant deficiencies that must be addressed in the immediate future. his report to city council says the building has issues relating to asbestos, an aging hvac system and communications and it systems that are out of date. davenport says the building needs to be empty while the improvements are completed. so do you put the current city departments in temporary space and then move them back in - or do you build a new city hall at town center, and give building one a new life with new departments? the plan would have communications and it move into building one and centralize. that department is currently spread over 17 different locations. the plan says that move
greater efficiencies throughout several city buildings. right now this plan is just a plan. public works says it's a chance to get a conversation started. it's an interesting proposal that would take several years to materialize - the next step would be for the city to approve funding in next year's budget for a feasibility study. chris horne 10 on your side new information tonight about the death of a blacksburg teen - investigators now say 13 year nicole lovell was stabbed to death on the day she went missing. two virginia tech students have been charged in her death. prosecutors announced today charges for 19 year old natalie keepers have been changed from accessory after the fact -- to accessory before the fact. 18 year old david eisenhauer is also charged with kidnapping and first- degree murder. both are being held without bond and are due back in court on march 28th. an update to a story we first told you about yesterday--- amtrak officials now know it was a rock that hit one of its trains in philadelphia. it happened on sunday
