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.

PLEASE READ BEFORE CALLING:

The date at the bottom of your ticket under “Court Appearance” is an arraignment date only. IT IS NOT A TRIAL DATE. If you wish to plead not guilty and contest the ticket, you must contact the Court before the date of your arraignment to arrange a trial date. If you are pleading guilty and wish to pay the fine by mail, please remit a money order or a bank cashier’s check made payable to Knox City Court. PERSONAL CHECKS ARE NOT ACCEPTED AND WILL BE RETURNED. Please enclose a copy of your ticket with your payment and a postage stamped, self-addressed envelope to receive a receipt for your records. You may also pay online using the website listed below. If your ticket is not paid within the allotted time, or a court date isn’t arranged prior to that date, YOUR LICENSE WILL BE SUBJECT TO A SUSPENSION AND A $25.00 LATE FEE. Some tickets are not turned into our office by your due date. We cannot accept payment unless we have our copy of the ticket. You will NOT be suspended and will automatically be given a grace period.

*The Starke County Prosecutor may charge any ticket twenty-five miles per hour over the speed limit as a Reckless Driving misdemeanor. You must appear in court to be arraigned for a Reckless Driving. If you are unsure whether your ticket has been charged as a Reckless Driving, please call our office first.

If you still have questions after reading this, calls are taken between the hours of 8:30 AM and 12:00 Noon. Office Hours are Monday - Friday 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM CT. Knox City Court regular session times are on Mondays at 4:30 and Wednesdays at 3:00 PM CT.
