Knox Board of Public Works to Meet Today

The Knox Board of Public Works will meet this morning where the members will receive information on the cleanup or renovation efforts at 301 N. Shield Street and 6 N. Pearl Street.

The board heard from Lucia Valladares during their last meeting in August where she discussed the progress on renovation efforts on the home at 6 N. Pearl Street. She said she would be hiring a business to help with the demolition portion of the proposed project. She plans on focusing on the exterior part of the building this year. Her plan is to demolish two side additions and the back porch, reinforce the foundation, put up siding, replace the roof and construct a new addition. She anticipates the exterior work to be complete by winter.

The board will also hear updates from Street Superintendent Jeff Borg, Wastewater Superintendent Kelly Clemons and Water Superintendent Todd Gardner,  as well as City Police Chief Harold Smith and Knox Director of Building, Planning and Code Compliance Kenny Pfost.

The Knox Board of Public Works will meet at 9:30 a.m. at Knox City Hall.
