WINTER WEATHER IS HERE!!

REMINDER REGARDING GENERAL ANIMAL CARE REQUIREMENTS

Mayor Estok would like to remind residents to take extra care in protecting their pets during our ever changing weather conditions.  

Every responsible pet owner should be vigilant in making sure that their pets are protected from the elements in a structure meeting minimum veterinary standards for warmth and protection.  Pets should be able to stand, sit, and lie down without restrictions in a safe and sanitary manner and have sufficient food and water at all times. 

Under Ordinance 1087 the City of Knox does have the right to enforce the humane treatment of animals.  If pet owners are found to be in violation of the terms of this Ordinance, citations will be handed out accordingly. 

If at all possible, pets should be brought inside or kept indoors during ANY extreme weather conditions.

Welcome to the City of Knox

Knox City Hall is located at 101 West Washington Street.

  

The City Officials welcome you on behalf of the residents of Knox. We hope that you will find this a friendly, safe and prosperous community in which to live, work, learn, and play.

The City of Knox is located in Center Township and is the county seat for Starke County, Indiana. The population was 3,721 in the 2000 census. The city was founded in 1851 and named after General Henry Knox. Knox was also the home of Indiana Governor Henry F. Schricker.

City of Knox Flag

knox-city-flag.jpgThe  Knox City flag was designed by 16 year old Knox High School junior Raluca Fodorean. Raluca selected the late 19th century Romanesque tower of the Starke County courthouse to symbolize the city. To identify the city, she inscribed "Knox Indiana" in a bold Helvetica type font, colored in "Redskin red" around her line art rendering of the architectural landmark. This insignia is centered in a field of white silk, edged in gold fringe.  The flag is on display at City Hall.
