|Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett|
Anyhoo, you can read the letter right smack here. In addition, the KNS editorial board today noted, right smack here, that a tax break “is fitting” for the businesses.
So, this question from a local business owner I ran into the other day: Why was it the county mayor who had to d this? (He did leave out the part that the city is in the county.)
How come the chamber of commerce, the city mayor (who lives in South Knoxville), the City Council, the County Commission, local state representatives and senators and business, etc, whatever, didn't do this?
Good question, I suppose. (Actually it was two questions.)
