Among other county commission business at the group's November meeting:

Three public hearings were held; the first to rezone 0.81 acres along Forrest Lane for future commercial use, the second to also rezone for commercial use a 1.42 acre property on Highway 99 on which the owner operates a small paint and light body repair business, and the final to rezone 10.45 acres off of Shelbyville Pike for light industrial use. All three requests were passed unanimously. The Budget, Finance & Investment Committee passed a number of resolutions, including two to authorize a combined total of $8,070,000 in Multifamily Housing Revenue Bonds for the Health and Educational Facilities Board, one to allow the Fire & Rescue Department to apply for the Assistance to Firefighters Grant, another accepting the Highway Safety Grant for the Sheriff's Department, and a final authorizing the County Archives to apply for the Tennessee State Library and Archives Grant. No reports were given by the Health & Education, Property Management, or Public Safety committees, but the Steering, Legislative & Governmental Committee did pass a resolution approving new PAWS Rules & Regulations for that organization.
