Snapshot: New Cornice for Hometown Bank Building

Facade work part of new signs, paint and other updates

Workers installed the new cornice for the Hometown Bank building during the Thanksgiving week in downtown Kent.

The city issued a building permit for the work in September.

The bank also has changed its sign color.

I think it's maybe slightly to the west of being across from the dentist office. Perhaps there was another one east of it that was removed when Haymaker was put in. Back in the 50's and 60's I knew the family that lived there. As my aged memory recalls, the address is 318. I don't know how the owner gets away with it.

I would suppose that the apartments on Lincoln Street, for instance, will generate far more property tax than the houses that were torn down, but I don't kow how apartment buildings are valued for tax purposes. Those buildings cover a lot of ground. If there were twenty houses torn down and each of them paid, say, three thousand dollars per year property tax, that would amount to sixty thousand dollars. As I said, I don't know what the apartments will be paying. Back to 318 East Main, right on the main drag for all to see when passing through town. There must not be three or more unrelated people living in it or it would be licensed and would not be allowed to have a broken window and other exterior deficiencies. I would be ashamed to own it, but since I don't, I guess I should shut up.

Thanks for the info and your comments, Ms. Burnell. Please call me Kit or Chris. Mr. Myers was my father.
