Knox Board of Public Works to Meet Today

Members of the Knox Board of Public Works and Safety will meet today.

The board members plan on getting an update on repairs to 1 and 3 N. Main Street. Building Owner Pete Milev was ordered by the board at their last meeting to make substantial progress on exterior and interior issues to the buildings. Earlier this year, Knox Planning Administrator and Director of Building and Code Compliance Kenny Pfost sent Milev a list of code enforcement violations and a time frame in which to make those repairs. No repairs were made by the November meeting so it is the hope of the board to get a positive report this morning. They are expecting to see a timelime of repairs and substantial progress on the violations noted. If those items are not to the board’s satisfaction, a $2,500 fee will be imposed.

The board will also act to approve the new employee handbook and consider the purchase of a new police vehicle plus new AVL equipment for the police department.

The street, water and wastewater superintendents will also have updates from their departments for the board members.

The Knox Board of Public Works will meet today at 9:30 a.m. in the meeting room at Knox City Hall.
