County Commission to interview, appoint new member

Posted

The Bradley County Commission will interview prospective candidates today for the Fifth District, Seat B left vacant with the passing of Jeff Yarber in late August.

As part of today’s meeting agenda, commissioners are slated to select who will serve the remainder of Yarber’s unexpired term.

Commissioners are operating under Tennessee Code Annotated and the Bradley County Commission Rule of Procedure 18 regarding vacancies, which states: Vacancies in county offices are to be filled by the county legislative body, and any person so appointed serves until a successor is elected at the next election after the vacancy.

The next general election in Bradley County will be held Aug. 6, 2020. The deadline for declaring candidacy for the Aug. 6 election is April 2, 2020, at noon.

In addition to selecting a 14th member of the County Commission, commissioners will consider two resolutions:

• A resolution authorizing County Mayor D. Gary Davis to negotiate and enter into an agreement with Matthew Cain Decker d/b/a Decker Heating and Air to provide removal and replacement services of two HVAC units at the Bradley County Court/Juvenile Detention Center for $24,750. The contract is for removal and replacement of one 15-ton gas HVAC unit and one 10-ton gas HVAC unit on the roof of the Juvenile Center.

• A resolution to rezone from General Commercial (C2) and Forestry/Agricultural/Residential (FAR) district to Highway Commercial (C3) district properties located at 5986 and 5974 South Lee Highway. The request is by Howard Karst, and it was given unanimous approval by the Bradley County Regional Planning Commission during its Sept. 19 meeting.

In addition, today’s meeting agenda includes a report from Mayor Davis and reports from commissioners, as well as announcements and opportunities for anyone in the audience to bring items before the County Commission.

The invocation will be given by Leonard Hodge, associate pastor at North Cleveland Church of God.

The Bradley County Commission meets at noon today in the County Commission Courtroom of the Courthouse.
