JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – The Campbell County Commission on Monday night did some housekeeping, passing a new set of rules for the commission as proposed by the rules and ethics committee.

It also voted to approve a last minute committee meeting decision to refuse any future bids from any individual or company that includes as a part of its bid the exclusive right to perform future changes, repairs or improvements on a completed project.

Also approved were procedures for performance evaluations of the three employees who work directly for the commission: Veterans Affairs Officer Shane Prater, Courthouse Building Maintenance Director Tony Hill and Commission Administrative Assistant Amanda Grodeman.

In other business, the commission approved grant applications for the sheriff’s department and for litter control and granted Exponential Digital’s three-month lease extension, at a prepaid rent of $1,500 a month.

Prater announced that on April 1 the Veterans Affairs Office will be open five days a week, including Friday.

The commission will meet with LaFollette Utilities Board on Tuesday at 5:30pm at the utilities office to discuss the first stage of water line improvements. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 03/21/2023-6AM)
