City Board to meet in Special Session
Jay Walker Monday June 19, 2017

There's still a chance the local Driver's License Center will remain open, at least for another year. McMinnville Mayor Jimmy Haley has called a special session of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen for Monday evening at 5:15 to consider an ordinance that, if approved on two readings, could keep the center open through June 30th, 2018.
The measure authorizes the city to commit funds not to exceed $4,000 per month for rent. The ordinance differs from the one that was rejected last Tuesday night in that it calls for local funding for one more year instead of two years.
Mayor Haley said the state and property owners have agreed to the deal. If the City Board passes the ordinance, the Warren County Commission later that night will consider a measure to reimburse the city $2,000 a month to help keep the driver's license center open.

 


Warren County Commission
Jay Walker Monday June 19, 2017

The full Warren County Commission will meet Monday night for its monthly session.
Among the items that will be discussed is the prospect of a 19 cent property tax increase to fund school projects. Although an official resolution for an increase is not on the agenda, County Executive Hershel Wells said it will be discussed and a non-binding vote will be taken to gauge support for the idea.
In other business, commissioners will consider five resolutions and a budget amendment.
Monday night's meeting will be at 6:30 at the Administrative Building.

 


All Bills Signed
AP Saturday June 17, 2017

Close the book on this year's legislative session in Tennessee: Gov. Bill Haslam has no more bills or resolutions awaiting his consideration.
The governor signed all the 524 measures sent his way this session, declining all calls for vetoing bills.
Others had unsuccessfully lobbied Haslam to veto a bill that allows people with handgun carry permits to be armed on all local government properties unless city and counties use metal detectors, hire security guards and check people's bags.

Tennessee Unemployment
Friday June 16, 2017

Tennessee's unemployment rate for the month of May was 4.0 percent. That's according to numbers from the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development. The 4.0 percent rate is down from the April rate of 4.7 percent.
The national unemployment rate is at 4.3 percent, a drop of one-tenth of a percentage point from April.
Officials say the May rate is the lowest Tennessee has seen in about 20 years.
In a year's span, Tennessee's unemployment rate has decreased six-tenths of a percentage point from last year's 4.6 percent. The national rate fell less than half a percentage point from 4.7 to 4.3 percent.
