Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam stopped in Oliver Springs Tuesday afternoon bearing gifts — including two grants for improvements to the small city’s water system and two parks.
“We’re here actually presenting a total of $960,000 in funds to different entities throughout Anderson County. We are proud to do that,” Haslam said.
Oliver Springs, which straddles Roane, Anderson and Morgan counties, received a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant for its water system.
The grant requires a match by the city of $37,700 in local funds.
