(KUTV) - A Lehi business may be closing its’ doors for good, after decades of dishing out good food.

“Porter’s Place” first opened in 1971 and has been going strong ever since.

But, the sewer pipes beneath the building need to be replaced.

The owner, Bob Trepanier, says the city’s plumber estimates that will cost about $30,000.

He says it’s up to the city to fix it – he just leases the building.

But the city has yet to make a decision on putting such a substantial amount of money into the repairs, as the building itself is over 100 years old.
