City OKs deal for Driver Testing Center
Deal passes first read by 6-1 vote
Alderman Mike Neal voted against.
Is the possibility of retaining a Driver Testing Center in McMinnville worth $4,000 a month for the next nine months with no assurance that it will remain after that time?City officials voted in favor of taking that chance Tuesday night. The measure passed 6-1. Mayor Jimmy Haley, Vice Mayor Ben Newman and Aldermen Jimmy Bonner, Ryle Chastain, Steve Harvey and Everett Brock voted in favor of paying rent on the Driver Testing Center at 594 Vervilla Road through June 30, 2017 to give the state time to consider restoring funding for the facility in its 2017-18 fiscal year budget.
