The Knox City Council got good news this week from Clerk-Treasurer, Jeff Houston. The Worker’s Comp Insurance has dropped $6,000. Houston said the carrier explained the reduction was because the loss rate has dropped. Knox has been attempting to get out of the high risk pool, and as Houston said, “It looks like we’re becoming successful.”

In other news:
It appears that Knox City records are taking up a lot of space at City Hall.

Before spring cleaning can take place, though, it has to be determined what records can be done away with and which ones need to be kept.

City attorney, David Matsey, told the officials that someone from a Record’s Commission would probably have to inspect the records before any can be discarded.

Until then the records continue to accumulate.
