ROCKFORD (WIFR) – The owner of the historic Midway Theater missed another deadline, but the city of Rockford decided it won’t fine him just yet.

Instead, he’ll have to present a letter of explanation from the architect working on the project. Crews are trying to shore up the building after the roof collapsed last year.


ROCKFORD (WIFR) – The owner of the Midway Theater has secured an architect to help fix the building’s roof problems.

Peter Crane met with the city today to prove he’s meeting their deadlines. Crane presented a letter from a design professional stating they’ll be taking over the building’s reconstruction.

Crane must meet with the city once a month. If he doesn’t meet certain deadlines he could be slapped with a $70,000 fine.
