Good Afternoon Commissioners,

Notes regarding the January meeting and items that will NOT be on the consent agenda.

The Work session for Knox County Commission will be on Tuesday January 21st at 5:00 pm. In addition to the routine items for consideration this month, there are three items on this month’s agenda that are presentations. Those three items are the presentation from Roll Call Systems, The Community Coalition Against Human Trafficking, and a presentation of the Greenway Corridor Study. (Note – the Greenway Presentation is related to agenda item 30. ) I plan to have those presentations early in the agenda to get them completed before we move on to the items that are up for consideration.

Honorary Resolution to be sent forward to BOC meeting next week.

To be added to the agenda: Items 35, 43, 44, 47.
Item 37 to be deferred to February.

Items that will NOT be on Consent:

Schools: Item 8 - Good time for an update on progress on the school.

Engineering & Public Works: Items 22 and 23 - Jim, with the sidewalk ordinance on this months agenda, it seemed appropriate to provide additional insight to this work that is taking place in the Ebenezer Road and Cedar Bluff areas.

Parks & Recreation: Item 30. Knox County Greenway Corridor Study. Also reference discussion item 47 that is related to this item.

Forensic: Item 32. This is a new contract. At first glance it appears as if this is a service the hospital is outsourcing to the Knox County Forensic team. Please provide insight and confirm that we have the bandwidth to handle an increase in demand for services. Will this help provide revenue that will offset some of the taxpayer support?

Finance: Item 35 regarding issuance of general obligation bonds.

County Mayor & Finance: Item 36 regarding contracts with the Tennessee Valley Authority for use of of the TVA East Tower.

Commissioners Carringer & Gill: Item 38 Pilot for Courtland Group.

Item 39 – First Reading - Ordinance regarding CN Neighborhood Commercial and automotive repair services.

Item 40 – Second Reading - Sidewalk construction standards.
Item 41 – Second Reading - Planned Development Approval Process.

Item 43 – Line Item Transfers

Item 44 – Spread of record items.

Items 45, 46, and 47 are the discussion items referenced above. All to be pulled from consent. 47 to be linked to Parks and Rec. Item 30.

Thank you,

Chairman Nystrom
