Mosheim Accepts Myers' Resignation; Gregg To Serve As Mayor In His Place

Originally published: 2013-07-27 01:09:22

Lawsuits Settled With

Bulls Gap, Rogers Petroleum



The Mosheim Board of Mayor and Aldermen voted on Thursday to formally accept Mayor Billy Myers' letter of resignation.

The action came at the board's regular monthly meeting on Thursday evening.

The long-time mayor, who was not present at the meeting, announced earlier this month his intention to step down from the position.

His decision was made because of lingering health problems which have severely limited his mobility, making him unable to fulfill many of his mayoral duties for a number of months.

Myers had served as Mosheim mayor since 1982. He had been elected mayor for eight consecutive terms.

Mosheim Alderman Tommy Gregg, who has been serving as vice mayor, will now officially assume the role of mayor to serve out the remainder of Myers' term, which will expire in two years.

The board has not yet decided on a replacement to fill Gregg's remaining term as alderman. A new vice mayor will also be named by the board at a later date.

Gregg extended his appreciation to Myers for his long-time service to the Town of Mosheim.

"I think we owe Mayor Myers a great deal of gratitude and appreciation," Gregg said.


In other matters, Gregg informed board members that the Town of Mosheim has been awarded $18,259.42 in a lawsuit against the Town of Bulls Gap, regarding an issue of sewer rate adjustment fees.

Gregg noted that the amount was not as much as the Town of Mosheim had requested in the dispute.

The case was heard earlier in the week in Rogersville by Circuit Judge Tom Wright. Further details of the ruling will be reported later in The Greeneville Sun.


Gregg also reported to the board that a mediation settlement had been reached earlier this month concerning an amicable but complicated land dispute involving the Town of Mosheim, Rogers Petroleum, Inc., and the State of Tennessee.

Under the agreement, the Town of Mosheim will pay $25,000 to Rogers Petroleum to settle the dispute, Gregg said.

Additional details regarding the history of the dispute and the settlement will appear later in the Sun.


Also at the meeting:

* The Mosheim board approved on second reading an ordinance to revise permitted uses in the town's business districts.

This ordinance clarifies allowances for non-conforming uses in the business districts.

*Alderman R.L. "Tom" Carpenter told the board that the Mosheim Public Library will be purchasing shelving extensions with funding previously approved and included in the library's budget.

The cost of the extensions, plus installation, will be $1,195, Carpenter said. The cost is being split between the library board and the Town of Mosheim, he explained.

Carpenter also informed the board that the library will be purchasing two computers at a cost of $488.77.

* The board members discussed the Dead End Lane roadway.

Gregg said that a determination needs to be made as to whether Dead End Lane should be considered a public road or a driveway.

He noted that the area in question is within the B-1 business district.
