“[A]s the Township Trustee it’s a huge step for our community to be able to finally start gaining some ground,” [Trustee Kathryn] Martin said. “If it wasn’t for the fire department doing this, we would still be in debt, horribly in debt.”

Thank you for your interest in Knight Township government! As one of the first townships in southwestern Indiana online, our “internet branch” looks forward to providing you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week access to the latest news, forms, and information from your local government. Whether you want to know more about how we work to serve the citizens of the east side of Evansville, or you simply need to get a form prior to visiting our brick and mortar office, we hope you find this service useful.
We are proud to let our residents know that this site was created without any cost to taxpayers. Stated another way, that means $0.00 of your tax dollars went into bringing your township government online and to your computer. This was accomplished through volunteer labor, utilizing industry leading free and open source internet resources, and where not existed, accepting donated materials. This permits us to reach a wider number of our residents without sacrificing our commitment to provide relief to our township’s residents.
Have a question or comment about our site? Would you like to suggest ways we can continue to improve the lives of Hoosiers in our community? Please contact us and let us know.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
EVANSVILLE, IN – February 15, 2011 – Knight Township Trustee Kathryn Martin announces today the launch of the official township website, located at knighttownship.com. As the first township in southern Indiana with an internet presence, this site embodies the Trustee’s forward-thinking vision and commitment to the needs Knight Township residents.
“Our residents will now be able to access information about our township and services 24 hours per day, 7 days a week,” says Trustee Martin. “Through the use of free and open source resources, coupled with the generous donation of Evansville photos by local photographers L. Kent Whitehead and Jesse Daniels, we are proud to provide this site without any cost incurred by taxpayers.”
In addition to information about Knight Township, including the forms of assistance provided to residents, the site features a community resource guide listing the telephone numbers and websites of many local charitable organizations. Users will also find an interactive map of the township office location as well as biographical information about the Township Trustee and Board members.
Creation of the site was proposed to Trustee Martin in early January by township resident Terry J. Record. “When I heard the news about what my township has recently gone through, I looked for ways to give back,” says Record, who volunteered his time to construct the site. “When I saw that no township in southern Indiana had an internet presence, I began looking for creative ways to get Knight Township online without cost to taxpayers.”
Access to the new Knight Township website is available at knighttownship.com.
