The City of Rockford is suing a downtown business who is allegedly refusing to move out, even though their lease has not been renewed, causing construction delays for the new sports bar that is supposed to be moving into the space.

Kiwi Cafe & Bar currently operates at 211 Elm Street in Rockford, but this is the location set for the new Blue Line Sports Pub in downtown Rockford which was hoping to be open by the start of the Rockford Icehog's season this October. At this point, it looks like they will definitely be missing that deadline. – Rockford’s News Leader
