United Way plans to move into a new building in early May, 2017.
United Way purchased 305 East High Street, the former home of the Murray, Rauzi and Kidwell Law Firm on February 23. United Way currently occupies a Knox County owned building at 110 East High Street. Due to additional office space needs of the Public Defender’s Office, the County Commissioners have asked United Way to find another location. Kelly Brenneman, Executive Director of United Way, said “We are so appreciative to the Commissioners for allowing United Way to lease 110 East High Street for the past several years, we’ve enjoyed our time in this building. We always knew this day would arrive and we are fortunate to have found a permanent home for United Way.”
“As a tax payer this makes perfect sense, the Commissioners should use a county owned building to house the Public Defender’s Office, it is cost effective and the location across from the Courthouse is ideal, added Brenneman.”
A open house is being planned for June.
