Carter County Commission meeting postponed due to elevator repairs

The meeting of the Carter County Commission scheduled for Monday, Aug. 16, at 6 p.m., has been postponed until next week due to the elevator at the Courthouse being out of service for repairs.

“On Monday morning our elevator went out of service and the repair technicians said it could be out of order for two or three days while the part is ordered and a crew can complete the repairs,” Carter County Mayor Patty Woodby said.

Woodby said she spoke with Commission Chairman Travis Hill and County Attorney Josh Hardin regarding the situation, and the decision was made to postpone the Commission meeting for one week to allow time for the repairs to be completed. The meeting will now take place on Monday, Aug. 23, at 6 p.m.

“We want to ensure that all of our citizens who want to attend or participate in the Commission meeting are able to do so, and the elevator being out of service could have prevented some of our citizens from attending due to mobility issues,” Mayor Woodby said. “In speaking with Chairman Hill and Attorney Hardin, we decided the best thing we could do would be to postpone the meeting so that everyone who wants to attend can do so.”
