I received a notice from the Knox County Commission about a public meeting that Commissioners Carson Dailey and Larson Jay will be having on February 4 at 5 pm. An interesting location, (especially at 5 pm, Ye Olde Steak House, Right at dinner time) So, I contacted both Commissioners Jay and Dailey about why when there are public facilities they would have this meeting at a restaurant.
Jay has not replied at press time. Which recently he was most adamant to me about contacting him before publishing a story.
Dailey replied, “This meeting is concerned citizens that requested the meeting with the two Commissioners. Robin King is the organizer and owns the Ye Olde Steak House.
Interesting note, the meeting was being scheduled with Commissioners before the MPC meeting of 2/12 or the Review meeting of 2/14. Why the meeting is with County Commissioners before MPC when the Commission decides after the MPC decision is kinda the cart before the horse, in my humble opinion. surely County Commissioners would not lean or attempt MPC Commissioners decisions before a MPC vote.
