Knox Board of Works to Hold Hearing over 6 North Pearl Street Today

The years-long discussion on a house at 6 North Pearl Street continues this morning with a public hearing before the Knox Board of Works. The board had called for its demolition back in 2016 but later agreed to let the owner try to fix the structural issues.

With several issues apparently still unresolved, board members voted in July not to renew the building permit, and Director of Building and Code Compliance Kenny Pfost issued a new order to rehabilitate or demolish in September.

Board members will also get updates on 253 West Locust Drive and 306 West Lambert Street. They’ll also consider the city’s 2020 holiday schedule and the 2020 board of works meeting schedule.

This morning’s Knox Board of Works meeting starts at 9:30 at Knox City Hall.
