The City of Knoxville will negotiate an offer on the Dixie Gebhardt house. Knoxville City Manager Harold Stewart says the offer is contingent on the Knoxville Library Board raising the full amount of the offer. The Library Board is not allowed to make offers on real estate, which is why the City Council made the decision Monday night. Stewart says the Library has until August 31 to raise the money. The house is currently listed at $145,000; the Council voted to make an initial offer of $120,000. The Library is interested in the house as part of their expansion project.
