NEWPORT-Gov. Bill Haslam will be in Newport on Tuesday, June 18.

According to Sherry Butler, Cocke County Partnership Vice-President of Operations, the governor will be at the Cocke County Courthouse at 1:00 p.m. to officially announce the awarding of an ARC grant for the Grassy Fork waterline.

Butler's announcement came Thursday morning during a meeting of the Partnership's board of directors at the Community Center.
