Useful Information


Mayor Estok would like to inform the residents of Knox, that the City is planning on applying for a CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) for an addition to be built at the south side Fire Station.  In order to apply for this grant, the City must conduct an Income Survey of the community.  Members of the Fire Department and City Officials will be going door-to-door or calling residents to conduct this survey.  The survey will be completed by March 10th.

All information will be kept confidential and responses to the survey will not require residents to give out personal information.

We appreciate your cooperation and assistance in sharing this important information with us so that we can move forward with the CDBG application process.


Due to the extreme weather conditions currently affecting our area, Mayor Estok would like to remind residents to take extra care in protecting their pets during these conditions.  Please read the link below to help protect your pets.

Community Service & Probation

Knox City Court does not provide a form for your community service. You must complete your community service through Starke County Community Corrections. You may reach them by phone at (574) 772-2258 or by visiting the office at 1611 S Heaton, Knox IN. Your hours must be documented on their official letterhead and signed by an official supervisor of that organization and turned into our office. If your community service is not completed by the date the court has given you, your probation is subject to be violated.

Knox City Court is a non-reporting probation court. There is no monthly reporting, however you must keep us informed of your current address. Court costs, fines, community service (if required), and restitution must be paid before the defendant is released from probation.
