The dilapidated Brinks Building and the Deluxe Bar is up for discussion again tonight at a Council of Commissioners meeting.
For almost three years the question has loomed over what to do about the poor condition of the Brinks that shares a wall with the Deluxe.
Council of Commissioners could make one of three decisions about the buildings.
They could vote to tear the Brinks down, which means the Deluxe would come down with it.
Or they could vote to approve a $14,000 structural and economic marketing study to appeal to outside developers.
Or the group could hold off on both those options and push the decision to two weeks from now.
Chief Executive Matt Vincent says, one thing IS for sure, that in the future they will try to not drag out a controversial decision like this.
"It can only improve moving beyond the Brinks and the Deluxe how we deal with our historic buildings from here," said Butte Silver Bow Chief Executive, Matt Vincent.
"We're taking steps to get there with our comprehensive historic preservation plan and just handling these sort of situations differently in the future."
The Butte Silver Bow Council of Commissioners regular meeting starts tonight at 7:30 p.m.
Vincent thinks the Brinks and Deluxe building discussion should last at least an hour.
