County Commission to hear Veterans Cemetery presentation

Posted

Recommendations related to the Bradley County Veterans Cemetery and a presentation on a proposed facility to house children waiting to be placed in foster homes are on the agenda when the Bradley County Commission meets in a work session at noon today.

Commissioner Thomas Crye, a member of the County Commission’s Ad Hoc Committee for Veterans Cemetery at Fort Hill Cemetery, will present the cemetery recommendations. Meeting last month, the committee voted to recommend that eligibility for interment at the Bradley County Veterans Cemetery will mirror national cemetery regulations.

Commissioners will also hear about Isaiah 117 House, which provides a colorful, warm and fun location for youngsters while they wait for placement in foster homes. Commissioner Bill Winters mentioned during last week’s voting session that local resident Renee Curry will be present today to talk about Isaiah 117 House. He added she will not be asking for money, but for support from county officials.

Winters said last week he will be absent from today’s meeting. Vice Chairman Jeff Yarber is scheduled to introduce Curry.

In addition, the meeting will include a report from County Mayor D. Gary Davis and reports from commissioners, as well as announcements and opportunities for anyone in the audience to bring items before the county commission.

The invocation will be given by Pastor Paul Davis of Westwood Baptist Church.

The Bradley County Commission meets at noon today in the County Commission Courtroom of the Courthouse.
