Knox City Attorney David Matsey is working on a Memorandum of Understanding between the city and Deb McIntire and between the city and the area churches that will be a part of serving free meals out of the Nancy J. Dembowski Community Center in Knox once a week beginning next year.

There will no rental fee associated with this endeavor.

Matsey said he is fashioning the agreement to outline the purpose and use of the facility to ensure all are on the same page.

Matsey said there needs to be an overall contact person for scheduling and a contact person from each church to make sure that the building is occupied for the purpose outlined in the agreement.

The agreement, if signed, would be good for a trial period of six months.

Knox Mayor Rick Chambers said McIntire is making efforts to contact all area churches to get the project put together to possibly start in January.

The Memorandum of Understanding will be brought before the city council at their next meeting on Monday, Nov. 10.
