Roane County Government is looking at filing suit against the operator of Roane Academy.
County to take action on Roane Academy

The Roane County Commission paved the way for Roane Academy to locate in the Roane County Industrial Park in 2014.

“It’s not only providing jobs, but these kids are in need,” then Commissioner Chris Johnson said at the time.

“What a great opportunity for our county to step up.”

The County’s position on Roane Academy has changed significantly since then. So much so that there are two resolutions on the agenda for today’s County Commission meeting that could create problems for the facility.
