Anderson Commission meets April 17th (tonight)

The Anderson County Commission will meet this evening (Monday April 17th) at 6:30 pm in room 312 of the Courthouse in Clinton.
Commissioners will discuss the status of the expiring lease for space used by the county in Oak Ridge as the home of General Sessions Court Division II. Commissioners have been discussing the possibility of moving the court from its current location on the Oak Ridge Turnpike to space in a county-owned building on Emory Valley Drive for several months now, citing the high cost of the lease and maintenance on the building. Recently, though, bids on the project to renovate the Emory Valley building were opened and came in well above the county’s projected estimate of $350,000.
That has sent officials in search of an alternative plan and one idea that has been floated is simply purchasing the building where the court is currently located. That option and others will be discussed during tonight’s Commission meeting.
Topics like finding a new home for the county’s Senior Center will also be discussed as will increased financial support for the Briceville Public Library, a larger and more secure office for the IT Department and a recommendation from the Operations Committee that Channel 95 record Operations’ meetings, among others.
