Knox City Council to Revisit Outdoor Storage Ordinance

The Knox City Council members will again be discussing the outdoor storage ordinance during their meeting tonight.

The ordinance was sent back to the Knox Plan Commission after the council’s last meeting. The council members thought that the ordinance was like a blanket ordinance and didn’t fit each business as they are different in the way they operate. The council wanted wording to allow for a business owner to go before the Knox Board of Zoning Appeals to request a special use for outdoor storage at their business as each case is different.

Knox Mayor Rick Chambers said that the proposed change was reviewed by the Knox Plan Commission at their meeting on June 3 and it has been sent back to the council for final action tonight.

The council will also have a discussion on the depot property proposal, a Parkview property requisition and 2015 calendar dates.

The Knox City Council meets at 7 p.m. CT in Knox City Hall.
