To Dome, or not to Dome?

Google Map
Here's Little Rock City Hall in 2012, appearing much as it did 100 years ago. Except there's something missing.

Uh-oh. Is that a dome? 

From Shorpy
It is! It is a dome! In 1955, the dome was in bad shape and was voted to be scrapped instead of repaired. There's been chatter of replacing it for about the last six years, but so far nothing's been done. By the way, if you look at the high-res version of this photo at Shorpy, you'll see a "Little Rock Garbage Company" sign on the right side of the building.
