  • November elections starting to take shape

  • Delinquent motel taxes top discussion at Caryville meeting

    The Motel 8 in Caryville owes at least four months worth of taxes to the town, according to town recorder Cheryl Ivey and attorney Reid Troutman.

    “We have limited avenues in order to collect those, and I think the only thing we can do is issue a distress warrant,” Troutman said.

    A distress warrant could allow the town to execute seizures on assets of the motel.

    The dollar amount of taxes is difficult to pinpoint because the amount owed depends on the motel’s income per month. $2000 per month is a good estimate, Ivey said.
