PULASKI, Va. (WFXR) — Discussions continue in Pulaski where Gary Martin, a former town employee, is fighting to keep his home of more than 40 years, which sits on property owned by the town.
However, a new access road may be the key.
Martin’s family is asking that the road be built coming out of Macgill Village — a neighborhood right next to Martin’s home — instead of the entrance to the town-owned property on which the house sits.
“We’re not talking about taking other peoples’ property,” said Darlene Burcham, Pulaski’s interim Town Manager. “Their property is, in fact, only the trailer, the double-wide trailer. This town owns the property on which that trailer has been located.”
WFXR News reached out to Macgill Village’s property manager, who says he’s been waiting to hear back from corporate, but he’s optimistic the access road can, in fact, be built.
If that happens, that would give Martin the opportunity to keep his home right where it is.
