CARYVILLE — Caryville Town Council Chairman Henry Chambers ordered for the Caryville Flea Market be open a minimal of two days a week, preferably Friday and Saturday, during the Caryville Town Council meeting on Jan. 8.

The Caryville Flea Market is owned and operated by the Town of Caryville in order to bring additional revenue to the town.

Town Council also approved of requesting for Holmes County surplus property free of charge after town employee David Hayes informed the council that Holmes County had a tractor and a bush hog.

“The tractor needs a clutch, but that’s no big deal,” said Hayes. “Because you are an inner-city municipality they can give you used equipment for no charge.”

He also said he’d be looking into possible Community Development Block Grants to help improve and maintain the city’s appearance.

“We need a grant to do some landscaping and maintain easements and town property,” said council member Millard French.

The Council members also tabled Westville’s request for garbage service from the Caryville, which was said to bring an additional $2,700 a month.
