Knox Board of Public Works to Meet Today

The Knox Board of Public Works will meet this morning where the board members will get an update on two unsafe properties.

The owner of 1 and 3 N. Main Street, Pete Milev, is anticipated to give the board an update on repairs needed to that downtown building. Knox Planning Administrator and Director of Building and Code Compliance Kenny Pfost told the board members last month that a timeline was provided for repairs. Milev was given until May 2018 to complete extensive repairs to the exterior masonry and interior violations. There are smaller improvements that should have been done by Jan. 12.

Lucia Valladares owns 6 N. Pearl Street and has made substantial progress in making structural improvements. At the last meeting she attended, she told the board that she was meeting with contractors to finalize plans and get moving on some repairs. She will update the board on what’s been done so far.

Additionally, the board is expected to review and approve the employee handbook. A revision of the handbook was discussed in a joint work session Tuesday night with the Knox Board of Public Works and the Knox City Council.

The Knox Board of Public Works will meet at 9:30 a.m. CT at Knox City Hall at 101 W. Washington Street.
