McMinnville Board
Jay Walker Wednesday July 23, 2014

An attempt to do away with the City Administrator position in McMinnville failed by a 4-3 vote Tuesday night during the meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen. The measure would have repealed the ordinance that created the position in the mid 1980s. Voting for the ordinance were Aldermen Neal, Smith and Bonner. Voting against it were Aldermen Newman, Wood and Barnes and Mayor Haley.
Mayor Jimmy Haley has been handling the Administrator duties since David Rutherford resigned last August. At the conclusion of Tuesday night's meeting, the mayor fired back at board members who have criticized his job performance. Haley cited a lack of help and support from board members and called for an end to the name-calling and finger-pointing. He called on board members to work together to hire a City Administrator and move the City forward.
You can hear Tuesday night's meeting in its entirety Wednesday at 10am and 5pm on 960 WBMC or online at www.960wbmc.com.

According to the Department of Human Services, each child care center gets a minimum of four to six unannounced monitoring visits each year, on which the violations are based.
To check specific childcare centers, you can visit the DHS website at www.tn.gov/accweb/, where it breaks down daycare providers by county.
