The Greeneville Board of Mayor & Aldermen met Tuesday at Greeneville Light & Power.
The Board voted on second and final reading to expand the number of members of the Parks and Recreation Committee from 10 to 12. The board also approved Parks & Recreation to purchase a mini-excavator.
City Administrator Todd Smith spoke about the sand volleyball court project, noting that grant funds must be used by next November. He said that staffing issues have prevented the work from being completed by Public Works, resulting in needing a bid to get the project done on time. The budget amendment approved by the Board authorizes up to $50,000 to complete the grading work, though Smith expects that only about half that money would be needed.
Mayor Cal Doty announced that Matthew Hensley has joined the Greeneville Regional Planning Commission and participated in his first meeting last week.
Town Recorder Lora Young said that the town received the second installment of $2.2 million in American Rescue Plan funds during October. She added that property tax collections are already at 10 percent, higher than at the same point in the past two years.
The Greeneville Board of Mayor & Aldermen will next meet on Tuesday, December 6 at 4 p.m. in the G. Thomas Love Boardroom at Greeneville Light & Power.
