McMinnville City Hall
There could be hope to keep the Driver Testing Center in McMinnville, if the basement of City Hall is deemed sufficient by the state.According to Mayor Jimmy Haley, he and state representatives have been working diligently to find a solution and the City Hall basement is a viable option.“Lots of work by several people has gotten us to this stage,” said Haley. “We have an opportunity to save the driver’s license center. At first it was a dead issue, but we’ve come up with several options and the best of those and the one I recommend we move forward with is to relocate the center into the basement of City Hall.”Haley says Lori Bullard, Tennessee Department of Safety assistant commissioner, and Michael Hogan, director of the Driver Services Division, toured the basement and say it might be adequate.
