Aldermen also agreed to rent the former Polk’s Meat Market building at Main Street and Boston Row to Woodville resident Denise Poole for a business venture.

Poole said she intended to make some renovations inside the building. Board members agreed to deduct the cost of those improvements from Poole’s future rent.

Poole did not disclose the nature of her business plan. The small wood-frame building is one of 250 properties included in Woodville’s Historic Preservation District, so tenants cannot alter the building’s outer structure or facade.
