Knox City Council to Meet Tonight

Knox City Council

The Knox City Council members will review another revised dumpster ordinance for approval on the second reading when they meet tonight.

City Attorney David Matsey had slimmed down the ordinance after receiving comments from the Knox Plan Commission members. The ordinance only restricts the use of dumpsters zoned R-1, R-2, R-3 and R-4 on the public right of way. It also includes a restriction of dumpsters on private property. The revised version that the council will look at tonight will include wording that dumpsters are allowed on private property as long as they are behind the front of the house in a fenced area and they are permitted to be there by a building permit. A dumpster may also be placed on the property for 10 days out of a 30 day period once a year. It was also suggested to include the ordinance bureau guidelines for fines.

The council will also discuss contracts for the 2015 fireworks celebration and Fourway.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. CT and will be held in the Knox City Hall.
