Commission Backs Road Supervisor on Maintaining Gated County Roads

For the last couple of years, Road Supervisor Kenny Edge has been written up by state auditors for maintaining roads to private cemeteries and for allowing property owners to have gates across county roads without authorization by the county commission.

On Monday night, Edge came before the county commissioners asking them to give him this authority, and they did on a unanimous vote. Edge said he sees nothing wrong with him working a road to a cemetery, or allowing gated county roads where they currently exist as long as property owners don't try to block others from passage.

State auditors, in the 2011 findings on DeKalb County, recommended that "The Highway Department should not maintain private roads to cemeteries unless authorized by the county commission or a private act approved by the state legislature"

Auditors further recommended that "The road supervisor should ensure the removal of any obstruction from the county's roads unless the DeKalb County Commission approves the gate across a third or fourth class county road as provided by Section 54-10-108,TCA. The road supervisor should determine if maintaining roads on gated property prejudices the rights of other taxpayers by denying them access to assets constructed with public funds"

"The concern was in the state law that says that I am not supposed to work anything but official county roads," said Edge. " They have been writing me up for the last two years and complaining about me working roads going to cemeteries and working any county road that had a gate across it. I told them (state auditors) that it has always been done. They (state auditors) said show me where the county commission has approved it to be done. Nobody could find no record of it so I brought it up to get it approved to where the county commission could okay me to maintain roads through cemeteries and maintain county roads that have gates," he said

In many cases, Edge said the gates are located on county roads that dead end with only a few landowners beyond those gates, and most are unlocked. "We've got gates all over this county and there have been gates all over this county for years and it even shows them on the county map. They're on dead end roads where there may be one or two landowners who just want to protect their property from somebody coming in there stealing everything they've got when they're gone," said Edge. "Some of them (county roads) don't have any homes on them. Its just farm land but the roads are officially county roads. They are named and are on the (county road) map. A few of them (gates) are locked but most are just (unlocked) gates across the road. They (state auditors) just don't want a gate across a road," he said.

Edge said its frustrating how that the state has such a problem with him on these issues, but sees nothing wrong with the state putting down hot mix and installing guardrails to a dead end on private property in the midst of a cedar thicket on the side of a hill along side a state highway (referring to property at the foot of Snow Hill on Highway 70). "The state of Tennessee hot mixed a road at the foot of Snow Hill going to that grave yard and they've got gates across it," he said.

Edge said he has the right to take down a gate across a county road if someone tries to prevent other landowners beyond the gates from passing through. " I've got a right to take the locks off of the gates or take the gates down and I've done it. If one person tries to lock another person out and two people own the property behind the gate, one won't let the other one have access to it, I've got the right to remove it," he said.

In the 2011 report, State auditors found that "a property owner erected a gate on a county road". The finding stated that " During 2006, the Highway Department paved 2.1 miles of a county road serving six property owners; however, .6 miles of the county road serves a single residence that includes a circle drive. The public has no access to this portion of the paved county road because the property owner erected a gate across the roadway. The road supervisor advised us that the Highway Department maintains the portion of the county road beyond the gate. Section 54-10-110, Tennessee Code Annotated (TCA) prohibits any obstruction, such as gates, on public roads, and Section 54-7-201, TCA authorizes the road supervisor to remove any fence, gate, or other obstruction from public roads and rights-of-way. However, Section 54-10-108, TCA empowers county legislative bodies (county commissions) to permit the erection of gates across public roads of the third and fourth class when in their judgment it will be manifestly to the advantage of the applicant and not materially to the prejudice of the public. The county could not provide us a County Commission resolution permitting the erection of a gate across the county road."

Concerning the finding that "The Highway Department performed work and provided materials on roads to private cemeteries without authorization", state auditors found that "The Highway Department maintained private roads to cemeteries using county employees, materials, and equipment. The road supervisor advised that it has always been the Highway Department's practice to maintain private roads to cemeteries as needed. Section 46-2-107, Tennessee Code Annotated, authorizes counties to expend public or private funds to maintain dilapidated or abandoned cemeteries, including the roads, if approved by a majority vote of the county legislative body (county commission). Furthermore, the Tennessee Constitution gives the state legislature permission to pass a private act that would allow a local government to spend public funds on private roads leading to cemeteries, if it determines that convenient public access to such cemeteries serves the public health, safety, or general welfare of the community. Officials could not provide us a private act or County Commission resolution allowing the Highway Department to maintain private roads leading to cemeteries."

Budget Committee to Discuss Possible Wage Scale for County Employees

County Mayor Mike Foster has called for a meeting of the budget committee and department heads hoping that a solution can be reached over what type of wage scale, if any, should be established for county general employees.

No pay raises were included in this year's budget, other than for employees due a raise in a four tiered salary pay scale for the Sheriff's Department which was implemented last year to bring their salaries in line with other law enforcement agencies in the area.

County officials, both in the courthouse and at the county complex, support step increases for their employees based on years of service, provided it can be funded without a property tax hike. But they have disagreed with Foster on his idea of using job classification as a criteria. Their belief has been that job titles would be divisive and kill morale and unity of county offices.

Foster, during Monday night's county commission meeting, said he still believes job classification should be a consideration in whatever wage scale is established. "It was our intent that we do that (wage scale) for all (county) departments. So far we have not been able to do that. But I think we're at the point where we need to do something one way or the other. I'm open for suggestions as to what you (county commission) think we need to do and what committees need to be involved and where we go from here," said Foster.

"It is my suggestion that we set up some meetings with department heads and the budget committee and see if we can't figure out where go," said Foster. "We've got two people (county employees) that have worked less than a year, seven people that have worked one year, three people that have worked two years, five people who have worked three years, seven have worked four years, nine have worked five years, six employees have worked six years, one has worked seven years, two have worked eight years, one has worked nine years, two have worked eleven years, three have worked twelve years, two have worked thirteen years, one has worked fourteen years, and one has worked sixteen years. Under our current way of doing things, if you're in the same job classification, if you work one year or fourteen years you make exactly the same penny. I think that's wrong. I think we're at a point where the budget committee needs to decide what they're going to do, up or down. Let's move on or do nothing, whichever its going to be," said Foster.

"I think its prudent to meet with the department heads," said second district commissioner Jack Barton. "Being on the budget committee, I want the employees to feel comfortable coming to that meeting as well and speak out. There may be some folks in the county that may disagree one way or the other and they may not be comfortable speaking in front of who they work for but I want to get all opinions," said Barton.

No date has yet been set for that budget committee meeting. Any recommendation for action by the budget committee would be sent to the full county commission for final approval.

Sarah Marie Smith Campaign Signs Stolen, Reward Offered for Conviction of Persons Responsible

October 23, 2012
Sarah Marie Smith

Over the week-end, over 100 campaign signs belonging to Sarah Marie Smith, candidate for Tennessee House of Representatives in District 40, were stolen. The theft apparently took place Friday and Saturday nights. The signs were stolen along major roadways in all four counties of the district and from private yards while people were away from their homes.

Reports are still coming in from DeKalb, Smith, Trousdale, and Sumner counties of signs that have been stolen. The total loss could exceed $2,000.00.

"Volunteers in all four counties have spent hours of their time putting up these signs for my campaign. I don't understand why anyone would do something so destructive," said Ms. Smith. "We've been able to replace a few of them. But there is not enough time or manpower to print more signs and put these out again before the election is over. My whole campaign has been built on integrity. We need more of this in the State Legislature. Stealing someone's campaign signs is far from that. It's really sad that someone feels a need to stoop to this low."

It's against the law to destroy or steal campaign signs. The campaign is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who stole these signs. Anyone with information about this should call (615) 735-1874 or contact their county sheriff or local police.

Firefighters set up fan to clear residence of smoke

One person was airlifted after a fire call on Adcock Cemetery Road late Friday night

Central dispatch received the call at 11:28 p.m.

Members of the Midway station of the DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department quickly arrived on the scene at 511 Adcock Cemetery Road and brought the small grease fire under control. Fans were set up to clear the residence of smoke.

According to Assistant County Fire Chief Jeff Williams, Darnell Gurley was in the kitchen doing some cooking when grease in a container overheated. Gurley apparently grabbed the container and went outside with it, causing a burn to his right hand. He also reportedly slipped and fell after he got outside, hitting his head in the fall. He was treated at the scene by DeKalb EMS and then taken by ambulance to a helicopter landing zone on Midway Road, set up by the Short Mountain Highway Station of the county fire department. A small child was also reportedly in the home with Gurley at the time of the incident, but she was not injured. A neighbor came over to help take care of her.

Meanwhile, the Smithville Volunteer Fire Department was called out at 10:08 p.m. Thursday night to a garage fire at 610 West Main Street. A detached garage caught fire and was destroyed along with a vehicle inside the garage. No one was injured. The property reportedly belongs to Jamie Turner but is rented to Phil Boner.

In another incident, a child was airlifted Friday afternoon after being injured in an all terrain vehicle accident on private property at Bright Hill Road.

Joe Black Effort Asks County to Help Form Coalition to Address Issue of Abandoned Animals

Members of the Joe Black Effort met with County Mayor Mike Foster and the County Commission Thursday night at the county complex to address the issue of abandoned and abused animals.

Rene Stufano asked the commissioners to help form a coalition to deal with the problem on a county-wide basis. "From our standpoint it isn't Smithville's problem. It's a county problem," said Stufano. "I think its important to come up with some kind of agreement with the county, with the city of Smithville, with the city of Alexandria, and with Dowelltown, and Liberty. The way I see it right now, everything is being dumped on the Smithville pound, which is a little closet, disgusting building with nothing good to say about it. I really feel like DeKalb County can do better than that. The animals go there. They're fed. They can keep them (animals) two days and wait for them to be claimed and then be euthanized. That is not acceptable for me or for a lot of other people," said Stufano.

The Joe Black Effort is offering a temporary solution, according to Stufano, to have their volunteers at the dog pound to care for the animals and keep the area clean and safe until they can be moved out or someone adopts them. Stufano said all volunteers will sign a disclaimer holding no one responsible for any injury that may occur. "In the few months that we've been running, we have more than 50 members. We have 30 foster homes right now with animals in them. We're accommodating 100 animals," said Stufano. "We've been taking care of their medical needs. Dr. Burke, Dr. Wheeler, and Dr. Little are all working with us. We charge a little bit of an adoption fee. We're doing fundraisers so that we can pay our medical bills. Our goal is to have our own rescue. We'd like to get a no kill shelter. I am aware that there are times animals have to be euthanized. But its not appropriate for every animal. I would like to see us create a DeKalb Coalition for the Humane Treatment of Animals. Members of the coalition need to be the mayors, the commissioners, aldermen, the people who run all the cities and the county, and the veterinarians. The Joe Black Effort volunteers would like to offer a temporary solution. We would like to sign a waiver. (City attorney) Vester Parsley would write that up so that the county is not responsible. The city is not responsible. If something happens to the pound we're (Joe Black Effort) not responsible and to allow our volunteers to temporarily assist in the treatment of the animals that come into the pound. We are willing to take care of their medical needs and take them out and put them in the Joe Black program. If they need to be euthanized then we can have that done. A permanent solution would be to have a building and a real rescue. I think to have a real shelter, something nice and clean, have an adoption center, having the animals taken care of, would really uplift our county. I think the less animals we see on the streets, the better," said Stufano.

The county commissioners made no commitment Thursday night, other than to suggest a meeting of the county's agriculture/animal control committee to explore the issue further. County Mayor Foster advised the Joe Black Effort to continue working on obtaining its 501(c) 3 non-profit status and to be patient with the county, saying that the problem is not one that could not be solved overnight.

In an email Friday morning, Stufano wrote. "Last nights meeting went well. We had good representation, all three veterinarians were there. Basically we introduced the idea of a new rescue and also the idea that this is a county wide issue. The poor solution that is in place now is antiquated, inadequate and needs to be torched. We talked about a coalition and doing something as a county. The county has really dumped this issue on the city and rationalized it by saying the city has more of a problem because it has a denser population. As we all know animals are dumped all over the county so that argument doesn't hold water," she wrote.

The Joe Black Effort will host a community meeting Tuesday, Oct. 23rd at 6:00 p.m. at the county complex auditorium to give the public an opportunity to discuss solutions for the animals and to present the idea of a DeKalb County Coalition for the Humane Treatment of Animals. Everyone is invited to attend.

Changes Coming to Alexandria Post Office

October 18, 2012

Alexandria Post Office

In a move to cut costs, the U.S. Postal Service is looking to reduce hours of operation at the Alexandria Post Office within a few weeks. Meanwhile, three carriers, who will continue to serve Alexandria postal customers, are to be reassigned to work out of the Watertown Post Office as of November 3.

(CLICK PLAY BUTTON BELOW)

The postal service has scheduled a community meeting for Thursday, November 1 at 4:00 p.m. to discuss the proposals with the public at the Alexandria Post Office. "This whole plan is called the POST Plan," said David Walton, spokesman for the Tennessee District of the U.S. Postal Service in an interview with WJLE Thursday. "We're not looking to close this post office. We're looking to reduce the retail hours there within a month but we are going to be relocating the carriers on November 3. That is another cost savings. The post offices where we are holding community meetings first, those are post offices that have vacancies, meaning there is no current sitting postmaster there. Alexandria happens to be an office where we currently don't have a postmaster. That's why its one of the first to have a community meeting," said Walton.

The Alexandria Post Office is among 13,000 across the country targeted for cuts. "We are looking at about 13,000 rural post offices across the country," said Walton. "We are conducting community meetings over the next couple of years. This will go on through September 2014. Because the postal service gets no tax dollars, which a lot of people don't seem to realize, we have to do what we can to help our financial situation right now. Originally we had planned to close post offices but we got such a push back from communities. They did not want their post offices to close so we came up with a new strategy. It preserves our rural post offices but it also enables us to cut costs by reducing the number of hours of operation at those locations," he said.

Alexandria postal customers began receiving surveys in September outlining four different options for the Alexandria Post Office. Walton said the postal service wants input from the public before making a final decision. "Before we hold any community meetings, we send out a survey to customers two weeks prior. It gives them four choices on how they would like to proceed. We ask that customers fill out these surveys and send them back into us so that we can present the results of that survey at the community meeting. The survey that customers receive will give them four choices. One of the choices would be to keep the post office open but at reduced hours. Currently the Alexandria Post Office is open eight hours. We're looking to take that down to six hours of window service each weekday. Current Saturday window service hours and access to delivery receptacles would not change. Another option would be to discontinue service at that office altogether and provide customers with roadside mailbox delivery. A third option would be to close the office and have customers to get post office services from another nearby post office. The fourth option would be to close the post office and open a village post office, which is similar to a post office but its located within an existing business and would offer more of our popular products such as Forever stamps, pre-paid priority mail, post office boxes, and we would accept mail there as well. These are the four choices and whichever choice we get the most votes for that is the decision. That's how it will end up. If people want to keep their post office open but with reduced hours and at least sixty percent of the community members want that then that's the route we will go," said Walton.

"After the community meeting is held, one week later we will post the decision at the Alexandria post office facility and if it is to reduce the hours that would go into effect thirty days after that," said Walton. " The implementation at Alexandria would occur no sooner than January 12. Again, the reason we're having these community meetings is to get input from the people who use the post office. We're not just going to make these decisions. We want input from them because they are the ones that are our customers. They use the post office so we want them to have a say in it," he said.

"Another thing we're doing in Alexandria right now is something called Delivery Unit Optimization(DUO)," said Walton. "What that means is we will relocate our carriers to another office. There will be three employees who will move to Watertown. They will not be losing their jobs, they're just going to be working out of another location. Its more of a centralized hub. Our competitors, both Federal Express and UPS, they already have this concept in place. We're just following suit. It does really add up to a lot of cost savings. So say you had three or four offices and we took all those carriers out of those offices and relocated them in a centralized location, that saves us a considerable amount of money and fuel costs. So rather than our trucks having to go each individual office, they can just make one stop and then our carriers will deliver the mail the rest of the way. I know it worries people when we do a DUO because they think their post office is going to close but that's not the case. Again, I have to reiterate, the postal service doesn't get any tax dollars so its important that we watch our costs just like any other business or organization," said Walton.

In May, the postal service announced that daily retail hours of the Alexandria, Liberty, and Dowelltown Post Offices would eventually be reduced. The Smithville Post Office was not among those listed for reduced hours. No specific plans have yet been released for the Liberty and Dowelltown locations.
