County makes board appointments
Placeholder Image
Tuesday was a busy day for the Warren County Commission, as two committees met successively in the afternoon.The first to meet was the Economic & Agricultural Committee, led by chairman Ron Lee.The main business was to nominate and approve county representatives to the boards of the Airport Zoning Committee and Airport Commission, Main Street McMinnville, and Tri-County Railroad Authority.Billy Earl Jones was appointed to the Airport Zoning Committee and Airport Commission. This position was formerly held by Pee Wee Hill, however a current member of the County Court must serve, necessitating the naming of a new board representative.Said Ron Lee, “Billy Earl Jones has a military background and he knows everybody out there. We need someone who might blend in and carry on from what Pee Wee did.”
