Several citizens professed that something smelled a little fishy out at the county landfill at the April meeting of the Rutherford County Commission, where claims were made that the county has been ignoring environmental regulations. This was done during the public comment period, and was not pertaining to any item on the night’s agenda, therefore no response from the group was required, nor given at this time. Two public hearings were held, one to rezone 409 acres held by John L. Batey along Baker Road, and another to rezone 238 acres along Medical Center Parkway. No speakers were present for either hearing and both were approved. The Budget, Finance and Investment Committee passed several resolutions, including one authorizing the Governor’s Highway Safety Grant Application for the drug court, another to apply for the Federal Domestic Violence Grant for the Sheriff’s Department, and another accepting the Federal Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response Grant for the Fire & Rescue Department. The Public Safety Committee approved a contract to house many of our juveniles with Wilson County, and Public Works and Planning set a new 35 mph speed limit on Miller Road.
