The 2nd district has 2 representatives on the County Commission as of Monday evening after the recent resignation of Mr. Robert Safdie due to health issues. There were 4 individuals who put their name in for consideration, and each one had 10 minutes to address the commission before a final decision was made. Those four were Roy Tom Isham, Jack Miller, Jo Patton and Caroline Knight. Tennessee native Caroline Knight won with 12 votes in her favor. The second district is now the only one represented by two women, Nancy Hyder and Caroline Knight. Knight grew up in Bledsoe County and was a part of the Cumberland County 4-H Camp staff in her youth. Knight is now an Assistant District Attorney here in Cumberland County and has been a resident of Cumberland County since 2008. Three issues that Knight feels strongly about are security in Cumberland County Schools, the unemployment rate and the Big South Fork Visitor's Center. Knight was also named to the Building and Grounds Committee, Debt Management Committee, Environmental Committee, Rules Committee and the School and Education Committee to fill the vacancy left by Mr. Safdie.

The increase of $25 passed on a 13-5 vote despite several commissioners speaking up about disliking the increase
A new single line recycling program is coming to Cumberland County. The County Commission approved spending $969,000 on a new recycling building and equipment purchases for this new system. A $320,000 grant was received in Solid Waste Grants for this project. In other expenditures, the Circuit Court Clerk's office is getting a Data Processing Equipment upgrade to the tune of $95,824. Circuit Court Clerk Larry Sherrill requested the upgrade for the "efficient operation of his office." The last budget amendment at Monday evening's County Commission meeting was to give $3,500 to the Fair Park Senior Center for the replacement of doors that no longer work. This funding is contingent upon the City of Crossville matching the $3,500 to meet the total cost of $7,000 in repairs.
