The Columbia Market House has a new full-time manager after council members voted to hire local resident Chris Vera to reimagine the space.
Vera, who directs The Columbia Historical Preservation Society, started work July 1 and will earn $79,803 in salary and benefits annually. He told council members that he plans to attract visitors to the building, built in 1869, by adding the borough's historical highlights in interpretive panels on market house walls. He also wants to rent out the now-vacant Gypsy Kitchen restaurant space as a community kitchen fir area businesses.
