Caryville works toward water park

The council approved of Spears sending a letter of dispute and request of proof of documentation in reply to a contractor that sent the bill during the council’s June 11 meeting.

Spears explained that the town received two grants of $20,000 to build Hodges and Sellers Park in Caryville in 2010.

“This was before my time but as I understand it one of the parks went over budget,” said Spears. “However the town had paid off the over amount, which was quit a bit over $20,000. This bill says that the town owes a principle amount of $16,510 but fails to provide documentation, which is why I strongly advise the town dispute the bill.”

Spears said that the contractor still has yet to provide documentation.

“After some phone tag I was finally able to get hold of their lawyer and told her that they didn’t have enough paperwork to make a claim,” said Spears. “I also explained that it was impossible that the town owed that much money, if any at all, and a couple of invoices are not sufficient documentation.”

The Town is still looking for volunteer workers to transport commodities from Sunny Hills to Caryville, if you are interested please contact Caryville Town Hall at 548-5571.
