Lower Interest Rates In Hawkins County Mean Big Savings
Hawkins County hopes to save a lot of money over the next two decades as new lower interest rates were arranged for the 16-million dollar construction bond issuance of 2008. The funds were to pay for high school upgrades, the Clinch School and the Church Hill Intermediate School. Hawkins County had been paying about 4.5 percent interest on the original note but a new loan offers only 4 percent interest and that lower rate will result in hundreds of thousands of dollars in interest savings. Of course the commission voted unanimously in favor of the new U.S. Bank contract. Other unanimous voting included a $2.65 bond issuance for the county highway department, a resolution requiring all county officials, county employees and county commissioners to carry a photo I.D. card, a resolution requesting the state return all eligible unclaimed funds from county offices back to Hawkins County and the acceptance of a bid from Tele-Optics Inc. of Kingsport for two projectors and two retractable screens to be installed in the new county commission meeting room.
