County Commission to consider variety of issues today

Posted

Ranging from grant applications to funding requests, multiple items will be up for vote by the Bradley County Commission Monday. The items are based on recommendations made during last week’s work session meeting.

Agenda items were recommended by:

• Commissioner Tim Mason, who thanked all those who participated in the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event last weekend at the Bradley County Landfill. He also presented a resolution authorizing the submission of an annual application for Litter and Trash Collecting Grant for fiscal year 2019-20 from the Tennessee Department of Transportation, and authorizing the acceptance of that grant, if received.

Mason said the grant is administered by the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.

• Commissioner Charlotte Peak, who placed three recommendations from the Building and Land Committee on the agenda for Monday’s voting session meeting: 1) a resolution amending the policy for the use of the Bradley County Courthouse for special community events during non-business hours — the amendment will allow the MainStreet Cruise-In organizers to continue using the Courthouse restrooms during events; 2) a recommendation to bid out work to make improvements to building 7 at Lake Forest Middle School; and 3) a recommendation that once the Bradley County Road Department has vacated the house used for its offices, to authorize the county mayor to sell the property with proceeds to be used for demonstration of the old schools buildings remaining from McDonald Elementary School and old Waterville Elementary School.

• Commissioner Milan Blake, who placed two recommendations from the Finance Committee on the agenda for Monday’s voting session meeting. Both items relate to the Bradley County Public Water Funding Plan: the first application is for $13,500 in county funding for a water line extension project on Cedar Springs Road and Old McClure Road; the second application is for $5,938 in county funding for a water line extension project on Bell Road S.E.

• Blake, who said the Cleveland/Bradley County Greenway board of directors asked if the County Commission would send a letter of support to the Tennessee Department of Transportation, requesting TDOT consider including a designated Greenway path as part of the widening of State Route 11.

• Commissioner Erica Davis, who placed on the agenda for Monday’s voting session meeting a resolution authorizing the county mayor to negotiate a contract with SPCA of Bradley County to provide animal sheltering services and lease the facilities located at 1655 Washington Ave., and 1570 Johnson Blvd.

Also on the agenda is a resolution authorizing the county mayor to enter into an annexation interlocal agreement between the City of Cleveland and Bradley County regarding the non-contiguous annexation of the property located at 2764 S. Lee Highway. County Mayor D. Gary Davis presented the resolution at last week's work session and Commissioner Thomas Crye asked that it be placed on today's meeting agenda.

The Bradley County Commission meets in voting session at noon today, in the County Commission Courtroom at the Courthouse.
