Questions Come Forward About Tullahoma Meeting

Tullahoma Mayor Lane Curlee

Questions about a special meeting called by Tullahoma Mayor Lane Curlee in October which was attended by members of the Tullahoma Board of Education may have violated the state’s open meetings act has led to a move to form a special ethics committee. The Board of Education will meet Tuesday night in a study session.
Chairman Pat Welsh said he was asked to have an ethics committee investigation initiative on the agenda, stemming from the October meeting that was attended by the mayor, some aldermen and Board of Education members. Board of Education member John Manis, who was not at the October meeting, said he made the request to have the special committee because he believes ethics violations have occurred. He said he believes the meeting was not properly announced, plus some board members may have taken other action that has violated the board’s operational policy.
