CARYVILLE—The town of Caryville set aside nearly $68,000 for paving projects. The town had $327,489 in its general fund as of April 30.
Alderwoman Vickie Heatherly would prefer to see a loan taken out for the project instead of using money from the general fund.
“I’m all for paving all the roads that we can, but just going about getting the money a different way instead of depleting our funds. I mean, I know it’s not gonna deplete them, but it’s gonna bring them down,” she said.
Mayor Chris Stanley estimated the town would still have a $325,000 surplus after the project is complete.
The motion passed with Heatherly casting the only dissenting vote.
