The Knox City Council members will be approving a fireworks date when they meet for their regular meeting tonight. When they met on Jan. 13, the council members had concerns holding the fireworks celebration on the Fourth of July as they were afraid of interfering with family gatherings. If the celebration was on July 3, the fireworks celebration would cost the city less money and more people could come through the gate. The matter will be settled tonight.
The council members will be looking over a revised dumpster ordinance for a second reading. It was decided earlier this month that the ordinance was too comprehensive and not necessarily formatted to a local use. A park board appointment will also be discussed as well as a request for use of the Nancy J. Dembowski Community Center in Knox for a Women Anchored in Hope event on April 25.
The Knox City Council will meet tonight at 7 p.m. CT at Knox City Hall.
