TDC approves ‘concept’ of an additional penny

 “It looks like we are raising additional funds for what we are already doing and for which we have money in the budget,” Pickett said.

While he agreed with the concept of a sports complex, he did not want any new dollars spent on anything but the construction of the complex.

“I’m not for spending an extra penny for any of this,” Pickett said, referring to the proposed draft budget.

The BOCC has approved the additional cent; with the TDC approval the county will now draft and advertise an ordinance, with two public hearings preceding a final vote, to codify the additional penny.

That ordinance would also set the time frame for the collection of the additional penny.

“We need to implement this and move forward on a plan,” said County Commissioner Warren Yeager, who sits on the TDC board. “The BOCC will be involved in bringing this project forward. The new park is the focus.”

The TDC board unanimously approved the “concept.”
