Knox County Home Rule Charter

One of the primary reasons to have a Home Rule form of Government (Charter) is that it is too burdensome to go to Nashville to request permission for every little item that a County needs to do.

In talking with a Brian’s Blog source it was asked. If Knox County has Home Rule Charter then why is the County Mayor running to Nashville to ask for permission to have a special election? This is a question that Brian’s Blog had not considered.

By the way it was noted at the Karns Republican Club on Tuesday evening that the TN Supreme Court held that the Charter was invalid, but that it determined that Knox County Officials ran a De-facto Government and that the citizens believed the Charter was intact, thus upholding the De-facto Government.

For a layman like me it is a splitting hairs thing.
