WDKN 1260 AM Country Gospel Talk Radio After further review, the Dickson City Council voted to stick with its original decision on a discounted building permit for the new Dal-Tile plant, even after learning the discount is bigger than originally thought. At an adjourned session Monday night, the council voted to reconsider the reduced construction cost it had accepted at its Jan. 5 meeting. Planning and Zoning Director Jason Pilkinton told the council based on current building code calculations, the projected cost of the building permit for Dal-Tile's 1.8 million-square-foot ceramic tile facility would be $329,000, more than $60,000 higher than what he originally told the council earlier this month. Pilkinton explained that the city is currently using the 2006 building code to calculate the cost of the permit, which uses a range of $68.99 to $129 per square foot depending on the type of construction and use of the space among other factors. Based on the plan submitted by Dal-Tile, Pilkinton had calculated a building permit fee of $268,000. But attorney Jerry Smith said the city's ordinance requires the most current version of the standard building code be used in calculating permit fees. Pilkinton said that version uses a range of $85 to $158 per square foot and the re-calculated permit fee for the Dal-Tile plant would be $329,000. At the council's Jan. 5 meeting, engineer Darrell James, representing Dal-Tile, asked the city to use the company's projected cost of $35 per square foot to determine the permit fee. James said Dal-Tile bases that cost estimate on its previous construction history with similar projects. Using Dal-Tile's projected cost, Pilkinton said the permit fee will be $132,390, which is $196,610 less than the latest projection based on current building codes. With three members absent Monday night, the council voted 4-1 to reconsider its earlier vote to reduce the building permit based on Dal-Tile's estimate and require the company to make up any difference if the actual cost turns out to be higher. There was discussion by Councilman Dwight Haynes about the city possibly setting a precedent that other projects might come in asking their cost estimates to be used in calculating permits. “Whatever factors are taken into account should apply across the board,” Smith told the council. “If we use one chart for one applicant and a different chart for another, that's the quickest way to get in trouble.” Councilman Horace Perkins III made a motion to again approve the same permit fee structure the council had previously approved based on Dal-Tile's calculation of $35 per square foot. The council voted 3-2 to approve the motion, with Haynes and Michael Outlaw in opposition and Scott England, Joey Turbeville and Mike Legg absent. In addition to the lost revenue from the building permit, the decision also reduces the city's plan review fee, which is calculated at 50 percent of the cost of the building permit. Based on the current permit calculations, the plan review fee would be $164,500. Using Dal-Tile's projected cost to set the building permit reduces the plan review fee to $66,195, a reduction of $98,305. Combined with the difference in the building permit, the council is potentially passing up $294,915 for its newest corporate citizen. James said earlier this month contractor D.F. Chase Inc. is ready to begin erecting steel at the site in the William D. Field-Dickson County Industrial Park and construction is expected to take about a year.27.01.2015 at 03:14 pmLike
WDKN 1260 AM Country Gospel Talk Radio Under a tentative agreement approved by the Dickson City Council, the five judicial commissioners currently paid by the city and county will become county employees with the city making an annual payment for its share of the cost. The agreement will be presented to the county commission for approval next month. City Administrator Rydell Wesson said the agreement will simplify the bookkeeping for paying commissioners, who currently receive checks from the city and county. Under the current arrangement, the city and county share the cost of the salaries of five commissioners, who issue arrest warrants, set bonds and sign search warrants outside of normal business hours. General Sessions Court Deputy Clerk Leslie Shelton serves as a judicial commissioner, or magistrate, during weekday business hours and the five remaining commissioners handle those duties on a rotating basis around the clock. Wesson said Monday night the city and county have reached an agreement in which the county will be responsible for paying the full salaries of the commissioners. Mayor Don Weiss Jr. said the city will reimburse the county for its share of the salaries annually, which Wesson said is $39,975 based on the current cost-share agreement. The county's current share of the commissioners' salaries is $30,795, which sets the total annual cost of salaries at $70,770. Doyle Wall, Royce Hafner, Michael Adams, Ronnie Morgan and Harold Sutton were appointed to the two-year terms as the five at-large commissioners in December. Shelton serves as magistrate as part of her duties as deputy clerk and the town of White Bluff pays Carol Harmon and Jeff Martin to serve as judicial commissioners in White Bluff. The memorandum of understanding between the county and city will be presented to the county commission for review at its Feb. 2 work session.27.01.2015 at 03:14 pmLike
WDKN 1260 AM Country Gospel Talk Radio A funeral service for the Pop of Pop's Car Wash in Dickson will be held Wednesday at Taylor Funeral Home. Joseph Robert “Pop” Curcio Sr. of Dickson died Monday at the age of 96. Mr. Curcio was the patriarch of the Curcio family that has operated the car wash on Henslee Drive for several years, founded and operated Ace Diner, is developing a multi-use project in downtown and includes grandson Michael Curcio, who narrowly lost last year's election for state representative. The son of Italian immigrants growing up on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Curcio was serving in the U.S. Army at what was known as Camp Campbell in Kentucky during World War II when he met and married Minnie Susan Hasley of Dickson. After a career in the restaurant business in Staten Island, the Curcios returned to Dickson in retirement. Son Joe Curcio Jr. opened the car wash in a former drive-through grocery store and named it Pop's Car Wash in honor of his father. Grandson Michael Curcio opened Ace Diner on Main Street and lost the race for the 69th District seat in the Tennessee House of Representatives to seven-term incumbent David Shepard by 15 votes in November, pledging another run in 2016. Grandson Athony Curcio is developing the retail and residential mixed-use facility currently under construction on Main Street. Visitation for Mr. Curcio will be 4-8 pm Tuesday and 2 pm until the service on Wednesday. The funeral service will be at 3 pm Wednesday from the chapel of Taylor Funeral Home with Bro. Steve Baggett officiating. Burial will be in Dickson County Memorial Gardens. Mr. Curcio is survived by two sons, Joe Curcio Jr. and James Curcio; two daughters, Betty Maloney and Carolyn Pape; 12 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and 11 great-great-grandchildren. For those desiring, memorials can be made to the Lakeshore Heartland healthcare facility in Nashville.27.01.2015 at 03:13 pmLike
WDKN 1260 AM Country Gospel Talk Radio Creek Wood High School takes on a pair of Montgomery Central teams that have been struggling tonight.

After getting eight first-place votes last week, the Red Hawks got only two in the new poll and trail CPA by eight points, compared to just two last week. Haywood County remains in third as the top six remained unchanged from last week. Creek Wood currently has a two-game lead over Waverly in the District 11-AA standings with both of the 10-2 Tigers' losses coming to the Red Hawks. Camden is tied with Montgomery Central at 8-4, a game ahead of 7-5 Hickman County. In the girls' standings, Creek Wood and Camden are tied for first place at 11-1, but the Lady Red Hawks hold the edge with a win over the Lady Lions in their one meeting so far. Lewis County, which owns the only victory over Creek Wood, is third at 9-4. Montgomery Central is currently on the bottom of the standings at 0-12 in the district and 1-19 overall.
