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.
