Busy Agendas Facing County Commission

The standing committees of the Putnam County commission meet Monday night to discuss a variety of topics. Among other things, they'll talk about financial aid for the Monterey High School chorus, improvements to the Bangham waste collection site, appointments to the county fair board, and a lease with the Nashville and Eastern Railroad Authority. The Fiscal Review Committee will be discussing whether or not to recommend giving money to the chorus in Monterey. They'll also be the ones talking about the Bangham waste collection site.  The Planning Committee of the county commission, meanwhile, will hear about a lease needed for the railroad company, as it relates to the development of a proposed rail trail between Cookeville and Monterey.  That committee will also discuss improvements to the intersection of Highway 111 and Quinland Lake Road.  Meanwhile, the Nominating Committee will discuss who should be appointed to represent the three commission seats, as well as five other appointments to the Fair Board.  The committees will begin their meetings Monday evening at 5:30 on the third floor of the county courthouse.
