I would reiterate last year’s priorities with my top 3 being:
1. Long-term inpatient Mental Health Facility.
2. TDOT Investment in our roads, interchanges, and intersections (Tazewell Pike at Fairview Rd in my District)
3. Sales Tax Admin Fee/Single Item Adjustment
June 5 is preferable
I would be interested in serving on Retirement & Pension Board, also for the first time.
Items 52 & 53 will also be pulled from consent, as there will be individuals at the Work Session to speak and/or answer questions on these items.
Commissioners, thank you for your responses. The Special Session for reorganization is set for Thursday, September 1 at 1:30 pm in the Main Assembly Room of the City-County Building. Dru will send notice for publication in Monday’s paper.
Here is our challenge now. Because Monday is a holiday, it would be necessary for us to get public notice of a hearing in this Sunday’s edition of the Knoxville News-Sentinel in order to meet the 15-day deadline for a hearing on July 18. Unfortunately, the News-Sentinel has told us they will be unable to run the notice this Sunday. This means the soonest we can get notice out is now Tuesday, July 5 in the Knoxville Focus. This puts us back to either the 20th, 21st, or on the 25th immediately prior to the Commission meeting.
While I agree with Commissioner Schoonmaker that this is not ideal, in the essence of time, and now encountering a closing window to even get this noticed by the 5th, I am seeking your concurrence with holding this Public Hearing on Ordinance O-22-6-104 at 5pm on Monday, July 25, with Commission Meeting to immediately follow. We can do our best to notify and work with all potentially affected department heads accordingly.
Thank you for your help.
Thank you, Commissioner Hill. Items #48 and #49 will be placed on the non-consent agenda.
Thank you, Commissioner Schoonmaker.
Item 32 will be pulled from consent.
Thank you, Commissioner Jay. Items 43 and 54 have already been pulled. I will add items 21, 35 and 44 to the non-consent agenda as well.
Thank you, Commissioner Hill. Item 43 will be pulled from the consent agenda.
Thank you, Commissioner Schoonmaker. Items 36 and 50 will be removed from the consent agenda as requested.
Thank you, Commissioner Schoonmaker. Item #46 will be removed from Consent.
