Allen Foster 4th District Representative, Cumb. Co. Commission/Peg Broadcasting News Thursday February 19, 2015

The Cumberland County Commission submitted its Financial Report during Tuesday’s meeting. Local Option Sales Tax collections for the Board of Education came in at $626,330 against a budgeted projection of $630,241 for a difference of a negative $3,911. For the year, collections are still above projections by $29,143. Property tax collections are at 55 percent of budget, which compares favorably to prior years. Hotel/Motel Tax collections are $389,020 year to date, or 52.9 percent of the $734,738 annual budget. Ambulance collections are at $1,498,820 of a $3,000,000 annual budget. During the last Budget Committee meeting, it was noted that the billing for Ambulance services was behind 2,554 runs. According to Allen Foster, 4th District Representative, this continues to be a problem, but a third party billing company has agreed to help the county to get caught up. There was no charge for this service as the company did it in order to earn their commission in a timely fashion.

50K Tree Day Update: Statewide Event Rescheduled for March 14
TEC Thursday February 19, 2015

NASHVILLE, February 18 --- In the interest of safety, efficiency and the success of our historic statewide tree planting event, we are rescheduling "50K Tree Day" for Saturday, March 14, same time, same places. Due to ice, snow, and inclement weather, tree distribution from nurseries across the Southeast to pickup locations is either not feasible, or not practical during these critical few days before our event previously scheduled for this Saturday. Be sure to check our website for more details, and please register so you may receive email updates moving forward: tectn.org/50ktreeday . This change allows more time to recruit volunteers and participants and to add additional planting locations. Homeowners, businesses, and groups of any variety will receive free trees for their property or community, and are being asked to plant them during the planting hour on March 14.

Allen Foster 4th District Representative, Cumb. Co. Commission/Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday February 18, 2015

The Cumberland County Commission has approved the exchange of property on Flynn’s Cove Road to expand the county landfill property. Fred Stout and Kevin Hinch own property in the area. The proposed trade of property involves a piece of land away from the landfill for a piece of property next to the landfill. According to Allen Foster, 4th District Representative, this trade gives the county more land next to the landfill that can be used for fill dirt if needed in the future. Mike Harvel brought this proposal to both the Environmental and the Building and Grounds Committees, with both agreeing to the exchange. The resolution was unanimously passed.
