Members of the Joint Economic and Community Development Board are scrambling to meet a deadline this month to continue the county’s distinction as a Three Star Community.According to Warren County Executive John Pelham, the state has made changes to the program and the county has until March 31 to submit its application to be considered.“We need to get our information together in the next week or so, generate a final draft and meet one more time this month to vote on it,” said Pelham. “I hate to rush everyone, but we have to submit this by March 31.”The statement was made during the county’s bi-monthly JECDB meeting on Wednesday. Among those in attendance were McMinnville Mayor Jimmy Haley, Morrison Mayor Sue Anderson, Chamber president Alicea Weddington, MES general manager and CEO Rodney Boyd, industrial representative Andy Putman, agriculture representative Gary Martin, and planner Tommy Lee.
