Morrilton's mayor says the the city's street department will remove part of a dangerous wall near the corner of Broadway and Division streets by next week.
Morrilton's mayor says the the city's street department will remove part of a dangerous wall near the corner of Broadway and Division streets by next week.

The wall was part of the Bobbye's Wedding Creations building, one of two buildings that collapsed in May of 2011, killing a two-year-old girl. Mayor Stewart Nelson says if the wall isn't removed it could collapse too.

Nelson originally proposed painting the wall so it wouldn't detract from downtown Morrilton's appearance. Engineers later determined that the wall should come down due to safety concerns.
