Committee To Address Hotel/Motel Tax
Resets Its Meeting For Jan. 14

Originally published: 2014-01-08 10:45:25

A committee appointed to address recent confusion regarding the intended distribution of the hotel/motel tax will meet at 3:30 p.m. on Tues., Jan. 14, at the Courthouse Annex.

The ad hoc committee (a committee appointed only to address one specific topic and then disband) is chaired by Commissioner Bill Moss and also includes Commissioners Jan Kiker and Jimmy Sams.

Moss had originally called members to meet at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday but had not notified the County Mayor's Office of the intended meeting.

As a result, local media were not formally notified. There was no public notice concerning the meeting, which would have been an apparent violation of the notification procedures of the state Open Meetings Law, referred to commonly as the Sunshine Law.

The Greeneville Sun was informed of the intended meeting an hour prior to its start by Commissioner Kiker.

When asked why he had not notified the public or the media about the called meeting, Moss said that, because the committee is only an ad hoc committee, he had not believed the same formal procedures were necessary for calling the meeting as are followed with other meetings of County Commission committees.

He apologized upon discovering the error, canceled the meeting, and rescheduled through the Mayor's Office.

Members did still sign in to receive reimbursement for appearing for the canceled meeting.
