Quick meeting for Supervisors


Knoxville —

The supervisors also discussed items they need to have on upcoming agendas. One of them is a meeting with Knoxville Hospital and Clinics regarding the hospital's request for assistance with financing its renovation project. KHC wants to use some of the bonding capacity of Marion County and the City of Knoxville in its financing plan for the $17 million project. If the City and County allow this, it will not obligate taxpayers to make any payments on the hospital's debt. Raymie intends to invite the Knoxville City Council to take part in a joint session with the supervisors to discuss KHC's proposal. 

Also soon to be on a board agenda is the transition of the leadership at the Marion County Care Facility. The US Attorney's Office began an investigation into current contracted management at Community Care months ago. Kingery said, prior to Tuesday's meeting, that things are running well at the facility at this time, under the direction of the firm that took over after the investigation began. 

The board will also discuss in the future the impact the courts' new electronic file management system will have on Marion County. Marion County's electronic records will "go live" on March 18. An update on the impact, which includes a discussion about the County's information technology, is expected in April. 

Approval must also be given the budget and County Engineer Tyler Christian intends to share his five-year road construction plan with the board. 

The board's next regular meeting will be Tuesday, March 11, at 9 a.m.
