Knoxville Mayor Don Zoutte says the Knoxville City Council intends to make a $120,000 offer on the former home of Iowa State Flag Designer Dixie Cornell Gebhardt. 

The council met in closed session to discuss the purchase of real estate. Upon returning to open session, the vote was taken to make this offer. 

Zoutte said the offer is contingent upon the Library Board's ability to raise enough money to cover the costs of the purchase. The Library Board, as an entity, does not have the authority to make real estate purchases.

The Knoxville Public Library has previously discussed expansion. Discussion has also taken place to include the Gebhardt home for research.
