Action was taken Monday by the Knoxville City Council regarding a special off-street parking request within the city limits.

Now special use parking permits will be allowed to businesses after a review by the Planning and Zoning Board and the City Council. The matter was brought before the Council at the request of area funeral homes and mortuaries, who were in need of additional parking for services.

The council also decided to bring a halt to the Downtown Streetscape project for the year, passed their end of a hotel and motel tax agreement between the city and the Chamber of Commerce, and agreed to purchase a pair of trucks and three snow plows for the Public Works Department.
