Orientation Scheduled For County Commissioners

The newest members of the Putnam County commission are being encouraged to attend an orientation session, scheduled for later this month. The twelve new members officially take office as of September 1st, but will have a swearing in ceremony following the orientation on Monday, August 30th, along with the current members of the county commission who won re-election this month. Meanwhile, one commission member has had to submit his resignation. Although Larry Epps term is scheduled to run through the end of the month, he is being sworn in tomorrow night to his newly elected position on the Cookeville city council. And the city charter says that council members cannot serve on both bodies at the same time.
