Knox Council Approves Fire Contract for Center Township

The Knox City Council this week approved the fire contract for Center Township but tabled the contract between Center and Jackson townships for fire service. Fire Chief Kenny Pfost was present at the city council meeting Tuesday night and reviewed the contracts at the request of Mayor Rick Chambers, and said he found a problem in the agreement between the townships.

The contracts are valid for two years and lay out the coverage areas and other conditions for fire service. Pfost said the coverage area for Jackson Township was incorrect, and Clerk-Treasurer Jeff Houston said he would have the contract corrected to be presented again at their next meeting.

The council approved a motion to table the contract between townships, and passed a motion approving the contract for Center Township.
