Committees

In August 2010 the Knox County Commission changed its rules to streamline the legislative process, eliminating duplication by replacing the Finance and Intergovernmental Committees with a Commission Work Sessiion held on the Monday prior to the Commission meeting. The Commission still retains a "Consent Calendar" for meetings. Should you like more information, please do not hesitate to contact the Knox County Commission office.


Knox County Board of Zoning Appeals

The Knox County Board of Zoning Appeals is comprised of nine members. One member from each of the nine Commission districts is appointed by the County Commission to serve. The Board usually meets the 4th Wednesday of each month at 1:30 pm in the Main Assembly of the City County Building to hear requests for variances of the Knox County zoning regulations, appeals of Uses on Review, and appeals of Code Enforcement administrative decisions and penalties.
