CARYVILLE, TN. (WLAF)- Some residents of Elk Lake subdivision are unhappy about a neighbor utilizing her home as an Air BNB.

Greg and Pam Lawson came before the Caryville Board of Mayor and Aldermen on Monday night to express their concerns about the home operating as a business. It’s a business nuisance in a residential area.
Vice Mayor Eric Smith told the Lawson’s “The city is addressing the issue, be patient, we have started the process to deal with it.” The issue was discussed in the May 23 planning commission and will be discussed again at the July meeting.
Alderwoman Vickie Heatherly updated the board on some projects around the town. New welcome signs for the town should have been completed and will be installed at a later date. The town has applied for a $25,000 grant for a dog park to put across from Shoney’s as well.
“We should have an answer on the grant, by the end of the month” said Heatherly.
The board completed the first reading of Ordinance 2019-03 for the annual operating budget for the fiscal year 2019-2020. A public hearing and second reading will be held on June 24 at 6 pm.
In the final business of the night, Heatherly requested the board advertise for quotes to replace the sign in front of the municipal building. Heatherly said the current sign is in disrepair and needs to be redone. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED 06/12/2019- 6 AM)
