KUB Working on Power Outages Caused by Storms
KUBLast night's storms left widespread damage and power outage across the KUB service territory. While power has been restored to a significant number of customers thus far, hundreds of outage locations scattered throughout Knox and surrounding counties remain. Debris including downed trees and damaged structures have made restoration more challenging, and KUB still anticipates this to be a multiple day event. At the height of the storm, in excess of 35,000 customers were without power. With approximately 30,000 customers already restored, 5,500 remain without power as of 12 noon Monday.


Meeting Set July 29 to Discuss $500,000 Historic Preservation Fund
Interested in historic preservation? Come to a public meeting on July 29 to share ideas on how a new $500,000 City of Knoxville fund can be best used to help save and restore historic structures and sites. The forum will be held at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 29, at the East Tennessee History Center, 601 S. Gay St. Mayor Madeline Rogero proposed the $500,000 fund to address some of the City's most difficult preservation challenges, and City Council approved it as part of the 2014-15 budget.

New parking meters that take credit cardsNew Parking Meters to be Tested Out: Pay to Park on Market Square with Coins or Credit Card
By next week, 12 new City of Knoxville parking meters will be installed on Market Street that will give motorists the option of either paying by plugging in coins or swiping a credit card. City engineers believe the new solar-powered meters will prove to be more reliable than the existing meters throughout downtown, many of which are well-worn and require frequent maintenance and repairs.
