A resolution questioning Roane County’s status as the 14th wealthiest school system in the state got unanimous support at last week’s county commission meeting.
All 15 commissioners voted for it.
A copy will be forwarded to the Tennessee Board of Education, state Sen. Ken Yager and state Reps. Kent Calfee and Ron Travis.
“Do you think we are the 14th wealthiest in the state, and if so, prove it to us,” County Executive Ron Woody said.
