August 26, 2014 Morristown-Hamblen Humane Society Cancels Today's Meeting WIth Little or No Notice

With a mid-morning call to County Mayor Bill Brittain's office, Morristown-Hamblen Humane Society President Christine Coley cancelled today's monthly meeting of the Executive Board of the beleaguered group.

The meeting had been scheduled for today in the West Wing Conference Room of the Courthouse. The Executive Board was expected to vote on accepting or rejecting the animal control and fiscal accountability contract drafted by the City of Morristown and Hamblen County and approved last Thursday by the County.

I was planning to attend and found out about the cancellation when I called the Mayor's office a little after 9:30 to check on the meeting time.

Hopefully, most of the other people who were going to attend also called or found out by word of mouth that the meeting was cancelled.

I asked the lady at the Mayor's office if Christine Coley. the president of the MH Humane Society, had given a reset date. No. 

The only thing that the Mayor's office knew or would say was that the meeting was "off."
