LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – Cameras could be coming to all intersections in the City of LaFollette. Yesterday afternoon at the LaFollette City Council Workshop, Mayor Cliff Jennings told the council he would like to see the city install cameras at all intersections. Councilman Wayne Kitts stressed the fact the cameras would not be used to catch speeders. City Administrator Stan Foust told Jennings that he would get an estimate on the cameras and report back to the council.

Kenny Baird, LaFollette Utilities general manager, was in attendance to discuss a capital outlay note for the utilities department. Proceeds from the $380,000 note will be used to purchase a backhoe, a dump truck and a pickup truck, all of these items are replacing older items. Baird reported it would be a ten year note.

The public works department needs a tandem truck and trailer to haul the excavator it purchased last year. The cost of the truck would be $205,000 and is available now. The trailer will cost $40,000 and will not be ready for delivery for a year.

Foust updated the board about filling a vacancy left by Administrative Assistant Charles Bozeman. Foust reported he would like to hire Michelle Rogers to fill the vacancy, the council will vote on this on Tuesday at its regular monthly meeting.

Two E-911 board members are up for re-appointment and would like to retain their seats, those members are Danny Marsee and John Long.

April has been declared as clean up, fix up month in the city. The clean up will kick off on Thursday at Liberty Park from 10am-2pm.

The city will host its annual Easter Egg Hunt on Thursday at 5 pm at Liberty Park. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 03/26/2024-6AM)

  1. Hasn’t the supreme court of Tennessee deemed city, county, state illegal to install Camaras on public street as it violates constitutional rights such as entrapment infringement. Didn’t Knox county have to do away with their camaras just for that reason
