From A local non-profit group called PATCH is asking the city to help them save the old Ritz Theater downtown. The group says it needs help funding the restoration of the building in order to bring more visitors to the downtown area.

The historic theater was built in 1929 but needs a full renovation. The roof needs to be replaced, major plumbing repairs to get the bathrooms up and running for guests and over-all, needs a lot of T.L.C.

So members of pitch are asking the city to help by financially backing the group.

There was no decision from the city today (Tuesday) on any sort of financial backing, but the discussions will continue.
