Dumpster Ordinance on Tonight’s Knox City Council Agenda

Knox City Council
Knox City Council

The Knox City Council members will be meeting tonight rather than their regular meeting night that occurs on the second and fourth Tuesdays.

The council will attempt to pass the third and final reading of the dumpster ordinance. There was a lengthy discussion about the proposed ordinance at the last meeting where the revised document included the requirement to have a building permit to place a dumpster on a property zoned R-1. A dumpster is allowed in any 10-day period out of a month one time a year for cleaning projects or a roofing project, or appear before the Board of Public Works for a variance.

The proposed ordinance came with opposition by Councilman Don Kring and Councilman Ron Parker, but the second reading passed by a vote of 3-2.

The council will also hear from a representative from Waste Management among regular agenda items.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. CT at Knox City Hall.
