PARROTTSVILLE-"I have exhausted all means I know," Parrottsville Mayor Mary Keller told the town's commissioners and citizens on Thursday during a discussion regarding the desire to move a county convenience center from its current location next to a proposed ballfield to another site.

Commissioner Charlene Cureton reported on her recent appearance before the CLB Landfill Committee, when she told them about a piece of property the town wanted to lease for a year. "The Committee chose not to do that for a small period of time," Cureton said. "We are still looking at other options."

But those options appear to be a moot point.

Parrottsville City Attorney Jeff Green told the group he had checked with officials at TDEC (Tennessee Department of Environmental Control), who said the current site is "grandfathered in" its location alongside Clear Creek.
