Town, Leuthold make FHS donations


The Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen voted unanimously (4-0) to allocate $25,000 for Farragut public schools at its regularly scheduled meeting Thursday, Oct. 14.

Farragut Mayor Eddy Ford said the money would be divided equally between the four Farragut public schools ($6,000 per school) with $1,000 designated for Project Graduation.

Appearing before the Board were Farragut Primary School principal Julia Craze; Farragut Middle School principal Richard W. Dalhaus; and Farragut High School principal Mike Reynolds.

Ford said, “I’m happy to say that the town of Farragut has to date contributed $200,000 to the Farragut schools.”

Town Administrator Dan Olson reported to the Board that a decision about the Farragut ZIP Code would probably be made by the U.S. Postal Service within the next four months. Olson said that post office officials in Nashville indicated that Canton Hollow Road and the Watt Road interchange were two proposed boundaries that the USPS had indicated could border the area.

Olson added that an issue was existing routes and the postal workers’ union.


In other action, the mayor proclaimed the week of Oct. 17 through Oct. 23 as Character Counts Week in the town of Farragut and urged “all parents, educators, community, business, political and other leaders, as well as youth organizations, to join together in a collaborative nonpartisan effort to promote the Six Pillars of Character.”

The Board held a public hearing on:

• Ordinance 04-32 a request by Ramsgate residents to accept Applegate Way, the Private Road located within Ramsgate Subdivision, as a Public Road to be maintained and owned by the town of Farragut.

• Ordinance 04-34 Farragut Zoning Ordinance, Ordinance 86-16, as amended, a request by Steve Bethel is hereby amended by rezoning a portion of Parcel 52, Tax Map 152, known as the Galbraith farm, located on the north side of Turkey Creek Road and bounded by Kingsgate, Turkey Creek Woods and Brixworth subdivisions, 116.26 acres, from A Agriculture to R-1 Rural Single-Family Residential District and OSR Open Space Residential Overlay District.
