Recreation complex to get new lighting

CLAY COUNTY-Mayor Dale Reagan informed the Clay County Commission during its latest regular session that money for the previously approved lighting and public address system upgrades for the Clay County Recreation Complex had arrived and that preparations to begin installation were awaiting final approval and confirmation from the Corps of Engineers.

Other actions during the meeting included the budget amendments of the Clay County General Fund including a decrease in estimated revenues, increases in estimated line items, and miscellaneous refunds.

Reagan also informed the commissioners of the need to replace computer and related peripheral equipment in the Judicial Commissioner’s office.

“The computer system they are using now is 14 years old and does not meet the job requirements,” stated Sheriff Brandon Boone who was in attendance at the meeting.

A motion was made and seconded to give Reagan permission to purchase the necessary equipment.

Vehicles (2004 Ford Crown Victoria, 1998 Jeep and 1998 Ford Crown Victoria) in the Sherriff’s Department were also declared as surplus and a resolution in support of Insure Tennessee was approved.

Insure Tennessee has since failed in the state legislative process.

Attending the meeting in addition to Reagan and Boone were commissioners Parrish Wright, Denzil Cherry, Timmy Boles, Winton Young, Jerry Rhoton, Liz Boles, Billy Maxwell, Timmie Scott, Bryan Coons,  Donna R. Watson, Clay County court clerk and Hershel Lacy, county attorney.
