Jellico Mayor Les Stiers has big plans for Jellico.
Last Thursday, Stiers suggested the purchase of a 16,000 square foot building and more ordinances to move the town forward.
Stiers addressed the board about the need for a community center. A rural community development grant would be used to construct a facility or acquire a building, he said.
“It’s sad when our kids have to go to Williamsburg to have their dances,” said Stiers. “We are trying to change that.”
