The Charlotte Town Council voted last week to give $10,000 donations to both the Dickson County Sheriff’s Office and the Charlotte Little League. Mayor Bill Davis proposed to use revenue from the town’s beer sales tax to fund the donations, saying the town should collect enough to cover the cost over the next 3-4 months. Councilwoman Sherry Thiel asked that the donation to the little league be earmarked specifically for improvements to the facilities at the ballfields on Highway 48. There was no discussion on the donation to the sheriff’s office, but Davis said after the meeting it is something he wanted to do after the council approved an ordinance establishing that the sheriff’s office will be responsible for enforcing the town’s ordinances. Since Charlotte does not have a police department, attorney Kirk Vandivort recommended passing the ordinance placing enforcement on the sheriff’s office to meet the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission’s requirement to have law enforcement services in order to allow retail liquor stores. At the same meeting last week, the council approved a certificate of compliance for Chad and Todd Murphy in the town’s first application of a liquor store. The council unanimously approved both donations after Davis assured them the town coffers would have enough money.
