Neighbors called it the “Kudzu House.” Abandoned and with a massive hole in the roof, the house at 6110 Sorrell Street in the Covington Mills neighborhood north of U.S. 278 was overgrown, run down and dangerous.
Neighbors just wanted it gone.
The house was torn down months ago, with the city footing the $22,000 bill for its demolition.
Monday night, the Covington City Council voted unanimously to bid on the lot at the upcoming county tax sale, with the idea of building a neighborhood park. Council members approved spending up to $25,000 on the lot.
