IDEM Grants City of Knox Permission To Burn Storm Brush

Knox Mayor Rick Chambers

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management has granted permission to the city of Knox to burn the brush that has accumulated from the storms that ravaged the city on July 24.

The Knox City Street Department has already prepared an area for a burn and will notify the fire department when that activity will proceed. This is not for individual residents to burn, but the city of Knox as a government entity.

IDEM has given the city 30 days in order to complete this task, and Knox Mayor Rick Chambers will notify WKVI when this brush burn will take place.

If you have any questions or concerns, call Mayor Chambers’ office at (574) 772-4553.
