Knox Board of Works Approve Write-offs

The Knox Board of Works members were presented with a list of write-offs for uncollectible utility bills.

Clerk-Treasurer Jeff Houston explained that all measures to collect the money have been exhausted.  They have attempted to contact the utility users to pay the bills and have put liens on taxes to the point where nothing else can be done to collect the money.  Some customers may have passed away or moved and cannot be contacted. 

About 30 write-offs were presented at a total of $1,794.29.  The lowest write-off was about $10 while the highest was about $360. 

The Knox Board of Works members approved the paperwork as presented with a unanimous vote.
