Hoping to save his home from being demolished, Kenneth Wilcox has filed an injunction request against the city of Beaumont.

The petition was filed July 7 in Jefferson County District Court.

In his petition, Wilcox says that on May 10 the city, in spite of his protest, voted to demolish his home at 3420 Major Drive.

Wilcox claims that he is in the process of repairing the home but that he my not be able to finish the repairs before the city bulldozes the house.

He is asking the court to issue a temporary injunction while he works to bring the house up to city code.

Beaumont attorney Eddie Schroeder represents him.

Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. E190-466
