VERO BEACH — A historic building in the heart of downtown Vero Beach has been tented for termites, according to city manager Jim O’Connor.

The entire two-story building was recently covered with a tent so the building can be treated for termites. O’Connor said he’s not sure when it will reopen.

He said his office hasn’t received any complaints from residents at the complex.
