PARROTTSVILLE-Parrottsville Mayor Mary Keller hinted at the town's monthly meeting held Thursday, June 6, that she may seek "outside" legal counsel not in the county to file an action against the Cocke County government to pressure or force them to relocate Parrottsville's convenience center.

"We can seek outside legal representation, and that is an option," the mayor said, without providing details.

The convenience center is located in downtown Parrottsville, adjacent to a new baseball field going up, and new tennis and basketball courts, which are all part of a sports complex projected to attract tournaments and outsiders to the area, and therefore the spending of their dollars in the town.

Mayor Keller said she decided to not ask the Town of Parrottsville Attorney Jeff Greene to come up with any such new legal action on the town's behalf because of his potential conflict of interest as Cocke County's delinquent tax attorney.
