City, county vote to fund Driver Center
From left, Aldermen Everett Brock, Mike Neal and Steve Harvey discuss funding the Driver Testing Center during a city meeting Monday night.
The Driver Testing Center is one vote away from staying parked for another year.Both the McMinnville Board of Mayor and Aldermen and the Warren County Commission met Monday and approved funding to pay $4,000 a month rent on the building, a stipulation by the state in order to prevent its closure. City officials will meet again June 27 for the second and final read on the measure, meaning the fate of the center to remain in Warren County is not a done deal. While County Commissioners unanimously voted 24-0 to once again reimburse the city half the cost, city officials were split 4-3 in their decision.
