Pilot sign remains unchanged


An apparent agreement between the town of Farragut and Pilot Flying J Corp. over an alleged non-conforming sign apparently wasn’t an agreement after all.

“I got a call ... from [Pilot attorney] Greg Isaacs telling me we did not have an agreement and so I can’t explain it. I certainly thought we did,” Town attorney Tom Hale said.

“He thinks we had a miscommunication of some sort,” he added.

“I don’t pretend to understand, exactly,” Hale said.

He announced at the Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting earlier in October that Pilot had agreed to remove a non-conforming sign in place at its location off Campbell Station Road.

The large sign lost its grandfather when Pilot remodeled the Campbell Station location in 2004. It applied for a new ground-mounted sign that does comply with Farragut codes, and received approval for the design of that sign, but never installed it.

The Town filed a lawsuit against Pilot in 2005, but the lawsuit hasn’t moved forward much since then.

“We’re going to pick up and move forward with the prosecution of the case, so that will be part of what we’re doing over the next few months,” Hale said.

Issacs did not return telephone calls from farragutpress.
