I talked with Fourth District County Commissioner Jeff Ownby tonight. He contacted the Knox County Finance Department earlier today (before this blog post) and instructed the Finance Department to take the $3,900 that is his travel bonus and put it in Knox County General Fund. Ownby believes that if the Knox County employees couldn't get a raise then he is not going to take or receive a raise. Ownby in his first year as a County Commissioner proves with this action that he walks his talk. Ownby represents the area from Sequoyah Hills through West Hills, Rocky Hill and Bluegrass.
