The town of Burns will form a committee to look into the possibility of creating some kind of senior citizens facility inside the community center. Mayor Landon Mathis said there have been “water fountain discussions” about the possible plan for several years and back when he served as the Burns parks director there was a vote by the park board to name the center for the late Janie Grove, wife of former mayor and police chief Shot Grove, who was active in the town and with the Dickson County Help Center. Mathis told the board of commissioners Monday night that a lot of work has been done to renovate and improve the community center, which is located in the former Burns Elementary School in downtown. The mayor said Sheriff Jeff Bledsoe has been very helpful by sending workhouse crews to do some of the maintenance work. “It’s a good building for a senior citizens center,” Mathis said. “We just need to put a little more time and effort in it.” The building is currently used for a variety of community organization meetings and twice-weekly church services. Mathis said the town could look at putting in an exercise room and other activities for area seniors, but would have to come up with “some common sense” hours and operational plans that would not involve a lot of additional expense. The commission voted unanimously to approve Mathis’ proposal to create a board to begin putting together plans for the possible center and assess what work is needed for the building. The school board conveyed the old school and property to the town in 2002.
