The City of Knox has voted money for a bank account for Harvest Days expenditures. The city council voted to approve $500 at the request of Michelle Bechtel, as Mayor Rick Chambers explained.
“Michelle Bechtel has taken over the chairmanship of the Harvest Fest. She has filed a Certificate of Incorporation and obtained an Employee Identification number from the I.R.S. She has also set up a bank account, and needs funds for postage, and miscellaneous bills she has right off the bat. I’ve explained to her at the end of the year a complete financial report of all expenditures and receipts is expected,” Chambers said.
The council voted unanimously to approve the funds.
The Harvest Days committee has been meeting. Michelle Bechtel said yesterday that she has received permission from the Knox Park Board to hold this year’s three-day event in the Wythogan Park.
In other news, the committee will not elect officers for Harvest Days this year, and there have been committees for some Harvest Days activities, but the committee is currently looking for more sponsorships.
