Commission To Consider Conservation Resolution

Some members of the Putnam County commission are concerned about whether the state of Tennessee will start taking money from one area to shore up revenues in another. County commissioner Gene Mullins says, for example, that the real estate transfer tax has generally gone to support conservation efforts in Tennessee. A resolution being considered by the commission Monday night would support the restoration of the tax to the conservation fund. As with most resolutions, it has no direct legal impact, but expresses the opinion of the group which passes it.
