Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett responds to the possible federal shutdown in his latest release, which, by the way, is far more entertaining than the PR conferences that Pilot has hosted these past few months.
“Despite Washington’s inability to come to a consensus and address the government’s financial crisis, Knox County will
continue to operate and services will not be disrupted in the event of a short-term federal government shutdown. In the meantime, I and my staff continue to monitor the situation in Congress, and will take appropriate,
fiscally responsible action as needed.”
