Everett Massengill said there will be no out-of-town retreat for the Roane County Board of Education this winter.
Massengill, the board chairman, said backlash from last year’s retreat is the reason why.
“People were saying, ‘I can’t believe they didn’t stay in Roane County,’” Massengill said.
In February 2008, the board met at the Oak Tree Lodge in Sevierville for a discussion on the proposed building plan.
