Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says hate crimes decline
AP Tuesday May 19, 2015

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says statistics show hate crimes last year in the state declined from 2013, but more incidents of religious bias were reported. The TBI released its annual statistical study on hate crimes Monday. The report is based on data submitted by Tennessee law enforcement agencies to TBI through the Tennessee Incident Based Reporting System. The report said law enforcement departments reported 340 victims of 295 bias-motivated incidents in Tennessee last year, down 2.6 percent from 2013. Meanwhile, offenses involving religious bias increased from eight victims in 2013 to 21 in 2014. The most often documented bias was anti-not Hispanic or Latino, accounting for more than 24 percent of all bias-motivated crimes in 2014, nearly the same as 2013.

 


Cumberland County Property Tax Collections Strong
Submitted: Allen Foster, Board of Commissioners,4th District Representative Tuesday May 19, 2015

During Monday nights meeting, County Commissioners learned that property tax collections are strong at 99.6% collected year to date. The Hotel/Motel tax collections are at $534,915 against a budget of $734,738, or 72.8% of budget, reports County Commissioner Allen Foster. At this time last year we were at 71.2% of budget. Ambulance collections have finally recuperated to expected levels after our third party billing company donated time to catch our billing department up on late work. The annual budget is $3,000,000 with year to date collections at $2,428,300, or 80.9% of budget. We are expecting another good month of collections as all of the late bills should still be coming in to the county. Prisoner boarding is at $676,397 year to date against a budget of $1,224, 885. Local option sales tax for the Board of Education was down $33,992 against the budget at $543,991 for the month. We are still positive $77,004 year to date. The May projections look promising with an unofficial number that is around $692,000 against a projected $665,893. If this projection holds true, the county would be around a net positive of $100,000 for the year.
