Knox Board of Works to Open Demolition Bids

City_of_Knox_LogoThe Knox Board of Works will open bids tomorrow morning to demolish houses with blight elimination grant funds. The city sought bids to tear down four houses that have been identified as part of the process. Mayor Dennis Estok previously said he hopes to have the structures torn down in April. Longer-range plans call for a total of eight houses to be demolished this year in order to close out the blight elimination grant.

The meeting agenda also includes a request for storm water approval at Knox Fertilizer by Titan Construction and consideration of the sale of surplus equipment. Items identified as surplus include a 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe and a 1991 International model 4700 dump truck.

The Knox Board of Works meeting starts Wednesday morning at 9:30 at Knox City Hall.
