 Gleason Board to appoint City Recorder in regular meeting tonight

The Gleason City Board meets tonight to appoint a new City Recorder while the Recorder’s Office is under investigation.

Former City Recorder Angela Hunt resigned last week after the Tennessee Comptroller’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office began an investigation into activities under former mayor Diane Poole’s tenure.

Gleason City Attorney Beau Pemberton says the activities occurred prior to Mayor Charles Anderson the new City Board taking office last month.

The Gleason Board will appoint a new City Recorder tonight and will also discuss other business, including moving the regular meeting date from the second Thursday of the month to the third Monday of the month.

The Gleason City Board meets tonight at 7:00 at Gleason City Hall. Those attending are encouraged to wear a mask and socially distance.
