No burning in city limits

KNOX — Mayor Rick Chambers would like to remind the citizens of Knox that there is a no burning ordinance in the City of Knox.
Now that the leaves are falling, it is very tempting to burn leaves — but please respect the no burn ordinance.
The street department will be picking up leaves each day of the week beginning Oct. 14. Leaves must be placed along the side of the street and not in the alleys for pick up. Please do not bag the leaves as it makes it more difficult for us to manage. The garbage contractors will not pick up bagged leaves.
As always, residents are welcome to bring grass clippings or leaves to the designated compost drop-off area behind City Hall at the corner of Shield and Mound streets.
