Peggy Houston, executive director of the Fair Park Senior Center, attended the meeting and requested the funds in order to replace doors at the Fair Park building on Livingston Rd. across from the Cumberland County Community Complex.
The building is owned by the county, but was a joint venture in 1998 by the county and city of Crossville.
"We had businesses and sponsors from all over the county that came together to support the seniors and chipped in to build this facility," Houston
Houston explained that Fair Park receives federal funds and is host to several federal programs for seniors and offers dozens of daily programs for senior citizens.
"We provided service for more than 5,500 people in the county this past year and have around 100 people a day take part in our programs," Houston
"We don't come to you for money all the time other than our annual amount," Houston
"So has this gone before your board?
"Yes, we thought that with all we do for the county and with all the programs we have for seniors in our community that you could help us with this," Houston
"No, but we are going to," Houston
Houston said that county building maintenance supervisor Steve Lewis estimated the cost to be $7,000 to replace the doors because the frames needed to be replaced as well and they are built into the concrete and brick wall.
Houston also requested the committee waive the fee the Community Complex rental for Pioneer Day on the Mountain, which is put on by the Fair Park Senior Center and serves as its main fundraiser.
"We have been doing this event for 29 years at no cost for rental and this year we were told we'll have to pay," Houston
At last month's meeting, Houston
was unsure if Fair Park would be able to afford holding the annual event.
