County To Consider 2 Candidates For School Bd. Seat

Originally published: 2013-11-15 10:52:36
Last modified: 2013-11-15 10:54:47



Two candidates will come under consideration by the Greene County Commission on Monday to fill the Greene County Board of Education's seat vacated by Roger Jones in October.

The commission will meet at 6 p.m., Monday at the Greene County Courthouse. Caucus meetings will begin at 5 p.m.

Jones, the former school board chairman, cited his intention to move to Knoxville when he stepped down from his 7th district position.

Two qualifying applicants filed for the position -- Paul Burkey, of 2718 Warrensburg Road, and Richard Tipton, of 560 Kiser Loop.

The 7th district represents the precincts of Orebank, Mt. Pleasant, Greeneville High School, Highland Roby, Andrew Johnson and Glenwood.

The nominee will fill the position until the next general election on Aug. 7.

In other business the commission will consider:

* authorizing a $285,000 expenditure from the General Fund's savings to remount and refurbish two ambulances, purchase necessary equipment and hire personnel to provide sufficient ambulances to handle both emergency and non-emergency calls;

* establishing an independent, three-member Greene County Audit Committee, as recommended by state law;

* budgeting a Recover Drug Court Grant from the State of Tennessee for $50,000 for an additional employee in the Greene County Drug Court;

* budgeting a $40,000 Federal Highway Safety DUI Enforcement Grant for training or enforcement related to DUI cases into overtime, benefits, travel and law enforcement supplies and equipment within the Sheriff's Department;

* budgeting $34,000 in carryover funds for the Federal Homeland Security Grant;

* budgeting a one-time, additional contribution to the Niswonger Performing Arts Center totaling $20,000; and,

* budgeting a number of small revenues within the Sheriff's Department for maintenance, gasoline and law enforcement equipment.
