Panel OK’d to hear wildlife concerns

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County Commission approved forming a Wildlife and Fisheries Committee during Monday’s monthly commission meeting.

A recommendation to form the committee was previously approved by the Environmental Committee and forwarded to the county commission.

The committee will “work with county residents, hunting and fishing clubs in Cumberland County and make recommendations on such changes, or to recommend new regulations to the county legislative body that it might pursue with Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission, along with the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency (TWRA),” according to resolution 10-2013-3.

The resolution states the committee will consist of the county mayor, two members of the legislative body (county commission) and four residents of the county.

The committee will have speaking rights on behalf of the county before the TFWC on issues and requests approved by the county.

Harry Sabine, 1st District commissioner, said, “The resolution is poorly worded.”

He requested that some of the typos, or errors, be replaced.

The resolution was from a resolution similarly passed by other counties in the state.

The resolution further states that the creation of the committee does not impugn the speech of any citizen being heard from the county, nor shall it supersede the voice of any other group or organization from speaking.

Cumberland County Mayor Kenneth Carey Jr. said he would take care of the typos and any spelling errors in the resolution that Sabine recommended.

It was approved 16-0 after a motion for approval was made by Johnny Presley, 3rd District. Presley’s motion was supported by Harvel.

Carmin Lynch, 9th District commissioner, passed on the vote.

The names of the people who will serve on the committee have not yet been released.
