The Knox City Council will meet for their regularly scheduled meeting this evening at the Knox City Hall to discuss a number of agenda items, including further discussion of the insurance compensation for an injured volunteer fireman.
The fireman, Wayne Noah, was injured while investigating a fire when a change in pressure forced him off of the house floor and onto the ground, twisting an ankle and preventing him from working his full-time job. The fireman is employed at a factory and has since been unable to work due to his injury. The problem is, the city’s insurance will only pay $300 a week to reimburse him for employment benefits, but Chambers said the employee makes significantly more than that at his full-time job, where he has been unable to work for several weeks.
The council will also elect their president for 2014 and appoint department heads, as well as discuss a fire contract for Center and Jackson townships.
