— The Janesville City Council likely will consider Monday whether the city should buy a piece of property east of the police station.

The 7,230-square-foot parcel at 101 N. Franklin St. contains an auto repair shop that once was a gas station. City officials propose buying the site with tax incremental finance funds. After environmental cleanup, the building could be demolished and the site used as green space.


The plan commission unanimously backed the purchase this week as consistent with city plans. It did not review the financial aspects of the purchase.
