The Knox City Council members will meet tonight where they will resume a conversation pertaining to the use of the Nancy J. Denbowski Community Center by church groups to serve free meals without paying the rental fee.

The request to host the meals was made several months ago by Deb McIntire who explained in a letter to Mayor Rick Chambers that different church groups would cook and serve meals in the community center for the general public. The center would be used one day a week for four hours.

The council had several questions about liability and cost. Mayor Chambers told the council members at the last meeting that he did look into the insurance liability and a liability certificate would need to be provided to the city in order for this activity to move forward.

The use of the Girl Scout Cabin was also offered as a possible location for a place to prepare and serve the meals.

The council members have additional questions for McIntire who is expected to appear during tonight’s meeting to discuss the request. Other items will also be considered.

The council will meet at 7 p.m. CT tonight at Knox City Hall.
