Friday August 12, 2016

At Thursday nights Crossville City Council meeting, more discussion was made about DCI and the Snodgrass Building. Council member Danny Wyatt wanted the Snodgrass building to be put on bid until the end of August, to see what other non-profit groups in Crossville may be interested. Members Souza and Harris and Mayor Mayberry all expressed trepidations with that motion, as well as how much they appreciate the work and effort DCI does for Crossville. As such, Wyatts motion to put the building on bid was voted down, and instead, council voted to enter into negotiations with DCI once their lease on the Snodgrass building is up in October.
