JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – The Campbell County Regional planning commission approved two minor lot subdivisions during its monthly meeting on Monday, as well as the hiring of an attorney. 

The planning commission voted in approval on contracting the services of Art Knight of Taylor & Knight to represent the Campbell County Planning Commission in litigation with local developer Bill Cox owner of Alco Builders and Realty. Cox sued the county alleging it has his money and won’t return it. The suit was filed in Campbell County Circuit Court in November. Within the filing, Cox said in 2011, the county, under the direction of the county’s regional planning commission, required he post a $20,000 bond “in relation to certain construction of homes.”

The homes have been completed, but Cox has yet to have his money returned. This constitutes a breach of contract, according to the lawsuit. Cox is requesting $50,000 in damages along with costs and attorney’s fees. HERE is a related story. 

Other new business included the approval of a minor lot subdivision for Edwina Ogg on McGhee Lane. 

A minor lot subdivision was also approved for Anthony and Tessa Johnson on Pine Tree Lane and Clear Lake Drive.

According to County Planner Jordan Rockwell, both were “simple minor lot subdivisions with no issues” and were passed unanimously upon his recommendation. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 02/06/2024-6AM)
