McMinnville Board
Jay Walker Wednesday August 9, 2017

The McMinnville Board of Mayor and Aldermen Tuesday night passed the 2017-18 budget ordinance on first reading, but not before amending the measure to include some items that had been left out.
Prior to passage, the board amended the budget to add funding for the strategic plan, the Tourism Development Board and a grant writer.
The budget calls for no increase in the tax rate. The budget ordinance will be the subject of a public hearing just prior to the next board meeting on August 22nd. The ordinance will then be up for second and final reading.

 


Haslam Wants Auto Plants in Tennessee
AP Wednesday August 9, 2017

Gov. Bill Haslam says he is making the case for Japanese automakers Toyota Motor Corp. and Mazda Motor Corp. to build a new assembly plant in Tennessee.
But the governor says Tennessee is far from alone in its efforts to land the $1.6 billion facility that could create up to 4,000 jobs.
Mazda and Toyota announced last week that the joint facility will have an annual production capacity of 300,000 vehicles, producing the Toyota Corolla sedan and a new Mazda crossover.
Tennessee is home to General Motors, Nissan and Volkswagen plants, and the state is trying to woo other manufacturers to its Memphis Regional Megasite.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol has released the names of the elderly couple found dead in Center Hill Lake on Monday.
The deceased were identified as 84 year old Lendon Welch and 83 year old Charlotte Welch, both of Knoxville.
Authorities believe the driver was trying to back the boat into the water at the Floating Mill boat ramp when both the boat and the vehicle went into the water. Both bodies were found in the lake.

 


Dept of Revenue to Collect 911 Fees
AP Wednesday August 9, 2017

Tennessee officials hope a new state law will end legal disputes between emergency communications districts and telecommunications companies over 911 fee collections.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported Monday that the law puts the Tennessee Department of Revenue in charge of ensuring companies like AT&T collect and turn over state-mandated surcharges on landline and cellphone bills. The fees go to county 911 centers.
Previously, telecommunications companies turned over collections reports and payments on many of their charges to the Tennessee Emergency Communications Board. State Sen. Todd Gardenhire says this method of collecting fees "was an honor system" and the board didn't have a way of knowing if the figures were accurate.
Tennessee 911 districts also alleged in lawsuits that sometimes companies don't charge fees on the lines they should or don't remit them all to the government.

The case is being investigated by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
