The Knox Board of Public Works members agreed to table discussion on the property located at 409 and 411 Lewis Drive until another time.
The members want to demolish the duplex that is located on those properties. The situation is rather interesting in that the duplex is situated on two different lots and were sold separately in a tax sale. The owner purchased one lot in a previous tax sale and the other half in a more recent tax sale.
Knox Mayor Rick Chambers explained that he hasn’t had a chance to speak to the owner about the deed to the property. The deed may not be dealt with until October. Once that is taken care of, the city can demolish the property and find another use for the area.
