Consultants hired by the village of Rothschild to study the business potential of its historic pavilion are scheduled to present their reports Tuesday. What they've found will have a major impact on whether the village decides to renovate the building or tear it down.

Lawrence Pelot, the Village Board President, says he's not against preserving the pavilion, but he does not want the cost to be passed on to taxpayers.

A committee to preserve the Rothschild Pavilion has been trying to raise the estimated $2.5 million to restore 90-year-old building. So far, the group has raised $20,000 for the project.
