City gives brewery wall owners ultimatum
BOZEMAN, Mont. -

Officials in Bozeman have given the owners of a 117-year-old brick facade that's part of the Bozeman Brewery district two weeks to decide to either tear it down or make it safe.
    
KTVM-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1fkucf9) in a story on Friday that city officials say the wall that is part of a site listed on the National Register of Historic Places is a hazard.
    
City Manager Chris Kukulski says an engineering report cites safety concerns, and that city officials have a responsibility for the health and safety of the community.
    
City officials say they hope the property owners move forward with a mixed-use development plan that will keep the wall standing.
