The Knox City Council approved the purchase of a property in the Parkview Heights area.

The Council purchased property at 404 Giles Court. On the property is a 1950’s-type trailer, and the owner, James Landrum, offered to sell it to the city for $2,000.00. Mayor Rick Chambers said on top of the purchase price the council would need to figure the cost of cleaning up the property.

The Mayor also asked the council to make a plan with what to do with other properties purchased in the Parkview area. The council members seemed interested in purchasing parcels as they come along. There are over 110 parcels of property in Parkview Heights and the City of Knox owns 10 of those properties.
