The Knox City Council will tackle the dumpster ordinance when they meet to work toward the second reading of the document tonight.
The council members wanted the opinion of the members of the plan commission before they approved the second reading of the ordinance. When the plan commission members met last week, they came up with several issues. Among the comments included the definition of dumpsters which they felt is too broad. They also thought the original purpose of the ordinance may have been for roll-off containers on public property and not all dumpsters. Location restrictions and time limits were additional concerns. The council will go through the plan commission’s comments when that agenda item comes up for discussion.
The council members will also reorganize, approve mayor and council appointments for 2015 and discuss the street department lease agreement for the purchase of a truck.
The city council will meet at 7 p.m. CT at Knox City Hall.
