Medical marijuana on CLB agenda
The Cocke County Legislative Body will meet in regular session at 6 pm March 19 in the circuit courtroom. Items on the agenda include; -comments from State Representative Jeremy Faison addressing his medical marijuana bill. Last month the CLB passed a resolution opposing the bill pending in the General Assembly without hearing from Faison or his supporters. Subsequently, a special meeting was called to hear from supporters of the legislation, but the body took no action because of a lack of a quorum. The issue was put on the new agenda by Commissioner Terry Dawson. He toells the NewsSource he invited the lawmaker because "several people wanted me to get him (to) come speak". - consideration of a right of way easement for Newport Utilities to build a new transmission line to feed a new substation in Chestnut Hill. The new line is designed to cross the county owned parcel of land between the Newport Utilities Operations Center and U.S. Highway 411. -County Mayor Crystal Ottinger will ask the Legislative Body to approve the appointment of Heather McGaha as County Finance Director, replacing Anne Bryant-Hurst who recently left her office for a new position. - Sheriff Armando Fontes will address the Body regarding food purchases for the jail.
