The Knox City Council is still gathering information about dumpster regulations before drafting an ordinance to govern their placement within the city limits. City attorney David Matsey gave the council copies of policies from other communities to review. He says the goal is to keep dumpsters from being placed indefinitely in front of homes or other structures.
Council members questioned whether any proposed rules would apply to structures undergoing renovations. Matsey says the city building permit would extend to that use. Mayor Rick Chambers is also reviewing the ordinances in effect elsewhere to determine what language will adequately meet the city’s needs.
