Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan has issued the following statement regarding a garbage bin enclosure constructed in the First and Commerce Street parking lot.
“Appropriate City officials have thoroughly reviewed the matter of the Parking Authority and the garbage dumpster enclosure. Due to the unclear and ambiguous language used in the City Charter pertaining to the Parking Authority, its powers and duties, misunderstandings and miscommunications occurred, which led to the construction of the dumpster enclosure,” the Mayor said.
“No wrongdoing or fraud was committed by any member of the Parking Authority or of City government in this matter. The members of the Parking Authority are unpaid volunteers and upstanding citizens of our community, who use their time and talents for the benefit of the City, and the City appreciates their service,” she added.
