The Spearfish City Council has hired a local contractor to demolish a call center that collapsed under the weight of snow from an early October blizzard.
TMone's 225 workers have been operating out of the city's recreation center since the collapse of the 50,000-square-foot city-owned building during the Oct. 4-5 storm that dumped as much as 4 feet of snow on western South Dakota's Black Hills.
The demolition work is to cost about $50,000 and be completed by mid-May. The city has set up a committee to recommend a contractor to construct a new building.
City Attorney Richard Pluimer says the city expects to reach an insurance settlement in excess of $5 million.
