Bike Nite license, permit approved

Knoxville — In a brief meeting Tuesday night, the Knoxville City Council approved the liquor license and special event application for Bike Nite. The vote was 4-0, as Councilor Carolyn Formanek was absent. 

Bike Nite is held the first Friday night of the month through the summer. The first will be May 3. 

Earlier in the day, the Marion County Board of Supervisors gave its approval for the event to utilize the courthouse lawn, pending approval from the council and striking a provision of placing an ice machine on the courthouse lawn. 

"I would recommend not to have that up here," Maintenance Director Cal Stephens said. "I just don't think that would be a good idea."

Stephens' concern was liability regarding the drop cords and other electrical wiring necessary to have the ice machine outside.
