Over the past couple of months, Southwestern Community College President Dr. Don Tomas has been meeting with officials in Macon County to determine a plan for expanding the Macon Campus. The proposed plan moved forward last week during a joint meeting with SCC’s Board of Trustees and Macon County Commissioners.

SCC’s Macon Campus was constructed on county-owned property in 2007 as a joint effort to provide higher education opportunities in Macon County. The property sits on 19 acres of county owned land. With enrollment numbers hitting at all-time highs both last fall and for the spring semester at the Macon Campus, Tomas has been tasked with finding a way to better accommodate the growing interest for education in Macon County.

Macon County's planning board held its regular scheduled meeting last Thursday. The board discussed the county's comprehensive plan and some possibilities that could be considered for the future growth areas located in the county, namely when it comes to water and sewer that is provided by the Town of Franklin.

“The recommendations that came out of the comprehensive plan for public sewer was to take the step to ensure that the sewer system is at adequate capacity in advance of the need. At that time it was at 70 percent capacity and at 70 percent capacity start planning for future expansion and at 90 percent start to secure funding to implement construction of a new facility,” County Planner Matt Mason told the board.

On Saturday, March 29, a Republican candidates forum will be held in the Community Building in Franklin. Candidates or their representatives running for local seats as well as the U.S. Senate will be present. Macon GOP Chair Carla Miller says, “So often voters feel they don’t know the candidates and have not been exposed to information beyond the ads and signs. This is a great opportunity to shake hands with the candidates and ask them questions. Voters can find out which candidates represent the views and have the backgrounds they believe suits the office.”

Macon GOP Vice-Chair Vince West is coordinating the event. “We are offering candidates and Macon County voters this platform to learn from each other. Candidates or their representatives will speak to the audience, but there will be meet-and-greet sessions as well. Voters have this event to help them make decisions for the May 6 primary.”
