Kingsport Orders Hog Wild Saloon Demolished by October

City leaders in Kingsport are now officially telling the owner of the Hog Wild Saloon to demolish the building within the next 60 days.

Paul Bellamy does still have a few appeals left, specifically to the Sullivan County Chancery Court.

But in an interview earlier this summer with the Kingsport Times News, he said he would comply with the city if it wanted the building torn down.

According to Kingsport’s building official, Keith Bruner, the saloon has a number of roof leaks, an unsanitary kitchen, a broken sprinkler system, and a deteriorating interior.
