CARYVILLE - The Town of Caryville is working to get finances in line, having set two budget workshops when Caryville Town Council met in regular session Tuesday. The workshops will be held at 6 p.m. at Town Hall September 5 and 19.

In other business, the council:

Passed Ordinance 17-04 regarding Fair Housing
Declined FRDAP grant for West EA Hodges Park, citing worries about the upfront cost
Voted for emergency purchase of mower from HP Outdoor Equipment. The council decided the $7843.26 purchase is the most cost effective route because the current mower is not working and needs extensive repairs.

The Town of Caryville will be closed Monday, September in observance of Labor Day. Garbage pickup for that week is rescheduled for Tuesday, September 5.
