Huntingdon Mayor Addresses Camden Landfill Concerns


Huntingdon Town Council (Cassie Walsh photo)

Huntingdon, Tenn.- The Huntingdon Town Council  met Tuesday and Huntingdon Mayor Dale Kelley opened the meeting to address concerns about  the West Tennessee Public Utility District doing business with the West Camden Sanitary Landfill.

Mayor Kelley wanted to let the public know  that the Town of Huntingdon and the West Tennessee Public Utility District hasn’t done business with the Environmental Waste Solutions landfill in Camden.  `                   

The West TN Public Utility District only deals with the West Camden Sanitary Landfill and  they have not seen a problem with leachate going into the water.

The West Camden Landfill has a pre-treatment process to prevent leachate from getting into the water and they run weekly tests for it. The West TN Public Utility District also does their own independent testing from the water near the West Camden Landfill.


HTC Approves Support for the Improve Act

Huntingdon, Tenn.- The Huntingdon Town Council passed a resolution in support of Governor Haslam’s first piece in the NextTennessee legislative plan called the Improve Act which will help improve manufacturing, public roads and opportunities for a vibrant economy in Tennessee.

The Improve Act includes cuts for business taxes for manufacturers, increases the gas tax by 7 cents a gallon for drivers and a 12 cent tax increase for diesel. The act would also increase car registration fees by $5 for the average passenger vehicle and places a $100 annual fee on electric vehicles, while increasing charges on vehicles that use alternate fuels. The fee would also include a 3% charge on rental cars.

The Town of Huntingdon is showing their support for the Improve Act  in an effort  to have the road widen to a four-lane highway with improvements to U.S. Highway 70 between TN Highway 22 Bypass and Leach Road.

The town hopes that the improvements to the road are needed due to the growth and development of the Carroll County Thousand Acre Recreational Lake as the road poses a safety hazard. And widening the road would help traffic go more smoothly while being safer.

Carroll County Commissioners (Cassie Walsh photo)

Huntingdon, Tenn.- The Carroll County Commissioners passed a resolution to amend Rule I of the Rules for the Government of the County Legislative Body of Carroll County. The amendment stated that the Carroll County Commissioners will meet on the 2nd Monday of every month except December and February. This amendment will save taxpayers money because the commission will only have to meet 10 times a year.

Commissioner Joey Darnell proposed to amend the amendment. Commissioner Darnell’s  motion would allow the commissioners to meet 11 times a year, but he proposed a $50 decrease per meeting in what the commission currently spends this would also save tax payers money.

Currently it costs the commission $9,450 to meet 11 times a year and Darnell’s proposed decrease would save tax payers $3,150 per year. Darnell’s motion to amend the amendment failed due to a lack of a second motion.

The original amendment to decrease the number of times the Carroll County Commissioners meet from 11 times a year to 10 times a year passed.The Carroll County Commissioners will now meet on the 2nd Monday in the months of January, March, April, May, June, August, September, October and November.
