SIKESTON - The historic Dunn Hotel in downtown Sikeston is coming down but not fast enough for city officials. According to Public Works Director Doug Friend, a certified letter has been sent to Harry Pratt telling him that he is in violation of the demolition contract and must have the building down in a reasonable amount of time. "He must come in to the office and meet with me to determine what the next step should be," said Friend.
