There was more talk of a potential natural gas line and an upcoming vote on property taxes at this morning's Todd Fiscal Court meeting.
No one spoke at a public hearing regarding keeping the property tax rate the same as the current fiscal year and first reading of an ordinance will come at a special-called meeting Monday morning at 8.
Judge-Executive Daryl Greenfield says he and County Attorney Mac Johns met with Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan this week about the potential new natural gas line that would cut through several pieces of property on the eastern and south end of the county and he came away believing that city isn't interested in a plan that would benefit Todd County.
Clarksville is threatening to make an imminent domain case if the county and property owners don't comply, but Judge Greenfield says he isn't sure they have a case to make if they aren't willing to allow a potential new distributor in Todd County to sell gas to residential and industrial customers.
Judge Greenfield is urging property owners to not grant any easements to Clarksville under the current proposal and says they should not be intimidated by any scare tactics regarding imminent domain.
Jailer Greg Allen gave a positive report, saying there are 127 inmates being housed now, including 104 state inmates. Twenty of those state inmates came in to the facility on Friday of last week and Allen said four of those would have normally gone to the Marion Adjustment Center, which was recently closed by the state.
