Budget and Finance
Jay Walker Tuesday June 27, 2017

The Warren County Commission's Budget and Finance Committee will meet Tuesday to discuss budgets for the new fiscal year. The meeting will begin at 4pm at the Administrative Building.

 


Gas Prices
Tuesday June 27, 2017

Gas prices opened the summer travel season averaging the lowest price in 12 years. Tennessee gas prices averaged $2.07, which is 9 cents less than the same period last year and the lowest since 2005.
AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said lower gas prices will make it more enticing for Americans to take extended, or more frequent road trips this summer.
Gas prices in Tennessee averaged $2.02 on Sunday, yet some motorists are finding gas prices well below $2 a gallon at many service stations around the state. The state average declined 3 cents during the past week.
The national average price for a gallon of gasoline during the month of June is $2.33.

 


Revenues Increase
Knoxville News-Sentinel Tuesday June 27, 2017

Tennessee fuel taxes are generating more revenue than expected, with a rate increase scheduled to take effect Saturday, according to tax collection figures for May released by Finance Commissioner Larry Martin last week.
Overall, the state's revenue collections for May were $53.1 million above estimates. Gas and diesel fuel tax collections accounted for $8.9 million of the over-collection, while most of the surplus, about $44 million, came from the state sales tax.
The state's current fiscal year ends Friday. Fuel tax over-collections for the fiscal year to date are $44.3 million, according to a Department of Finance and Administration news release.
The state tax on gasoline is 21.4 cents per gallon but will increase by 4 cents per gallon Saturday under a bill pushed by Gov. Bill Haslam and approved by the legislature in April. Another penny-per-gallon increase will come on July 1, 2018, and again on July 1, 2019, for a total increase of 6 cents per gallon.

 


Teen Killed in Crash
Jay Walker Tuesday June 27, 2017

A McMinnville teenager was killed and two other people critically injured in a head-on crash Sunday night on Highway 70 near Centertown.
According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, a 2005 Toyota pickup truck, driven by 56 year old Craig Mears of Woodbury was headed east bound in the west bound lanes when it crashed head-on into a 2012 Nissan Versa, driven by 16 year old Promise Harrison of McMinnville. Harrison was pronounced dead on arrival at Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga. Mears and a 14 year old female passenger in the Nissan were critically injured and were both airlifted to Erlanger.
The THP suspects some type of impairment as the reason Mears was traveling the wrong way in the westbound lanes.
Harrison's death makes the 11th traffic fatality in Warren County in 2017.

 


McMinnville Board
Jay Walker Tuesday June 27, 2017

The McMinnville Board of Mayor and Aldermen will meet Tuesday night to consider two ordinances, including second and final reading of a measure to commit funds not to exceed $4,000 per month for rent to keep the Drivers License Center open for another year. The ordinance passed first reading 4-3 during a special called meeting last Monday. The Warren County Commission later voted unanimously to reimburse the city $2,000 a month to help keep the center open.
The other ordinance is final reading of a measure to adopt a new policies and procedures manual for the police department.
Tuesday night's meeting begins at 7pm at City Hall.
The board meeting will be preceded by a meeting of the Building and Grounds Committee at 6pm, the Water and Sewer Committee at 6:15 and the Streets and Sanitation Committee at 6:30.
