Antique business on Burchett land operating without occupancy permit

Apparently a woman who operates a consignment and antique business on property owned by Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett does not have a certificate of occupancy.

The matter was pointed out by rogue blogger Brian Hornback yesterday RIGHT HERE.

County Communications Director Michael “the bicycle rider” Grider told me that since it was brought to their attention, officials in the administration have talked to the operator, Angela Taylor, and she’s now aware that she needs a certificate and is working to get one.

The business is called Floyd’s Garage, which coincidentally (or not) is Burchett’s middle name. It’s located on a chunk of property at 3019 SE Amherst Road, which the mayor has owned for more than a decade.

Burchett, according to Grider, is not affiliated with the business.

According to the operation’s WEBSITE, Floyd’s Garage opened an eBay store in early 2014, and then the warehouse this past May.
“Our team of experienced and qualified staff, have been working many years collecting, buying, and selling car parts, motorcycle parts, antique toys, vintage furniture, antique glassware, and now have high quality interior furnishings – both new and old, large and small,” the website states.
Floyd's Garage is open on Fridays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
