Seventy acres of land behind Beech Tree Manor could soon be up for sale despite a lack of approval from the Jellico board of aldermen.
Citing Section 4.09 of the town’s charter, Mayor Les Stiers said he has the power to sell the land without the board’s approval.
“I’ve got to look out for the city and this council has not given or looked out to make any revenue for the city,” Stiers said.
