CARYVILLE, TN (WLAF) – Last night the Caryville Board of Mayor and Aldermen met and heard concerns from neighbors on Cove Circle. Neighbors are concerned about the amount of debris around a home on Cove Circle. One of the neighbors reported that the home appeared to be abandoned from the appearance. They alleged that the grass had not been mowed yet this season and was about knee high. 

Alderman Patrick Pebley and Alderman Josh Monday gave an update on the Caryville Cares Playground. Monday reported that Caryville Jacksboro Utilities Commission (CJUC) was working on drainage at the playground. He continued that work should be complete in about five more days.

Monday then reported on the need for additional excavation work at the park and reported the issue was being addressed. He finished his part of the update by reporting the playground has an official address of 117 School Hill Street.

Alderman Patrick Pebley updated the board on the design of the walking track stating that it was back to the original design. He also reported that installation of the playground equipment could start in mid-June. Pebley told WLAF to deal with the parking issue, the road will be widened to accommodate handicap parking spaces. A parking lot will be built across the street with a crosswalk going to the park.

Police officer Jacob Fox was hired after his 90 day probationary period with the department. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 05/09/2023-6AM)
