A Crisis Cleanup Help Line is in place for Tennesseans who need help with muck-out, debris removal, and home cleanup from the recent statewide flooding.
The City of Sevierville announces the temporary closure of a section of Railroad Street, between McMahan Avenue and the Middle Creek Bridge, for utility work beginning Monday, March 4. Weather and other conditions permitting, the work will be completed by 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 5. Work will take place each day from approximately 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
No through traffic will be permitted during these times.
Sevierville Fire Department firefighters responded to a cabin fire just before 8 p.m. in Echota Resort last night, Monday, February 25, 2019. The cabin was located at 1010 Walini Way.
The cabin was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived and shortly after beginning to fight the fire, the second story and roof collapsed, causing the fire to increase. The fire was brought under control about an hour later.
The two, 18-hole courses at the Sevierville Golf Club were damaged by the rainfall and subsequent flooding that occurred over the weekend on February 23 and 24, 2019. The driving range was also damaged, but to a lesser extent.
“Golf Club and City employees are performing a damage assessment,” said Assistant City Administrator Tracy Baker. “When it is completed, we will be able to provide estimates of the damage and course reopening dates.”
The Pro Shop and Mulligan’s Restaurant will remain open for business. The driving range may be open later this week. Keep up to date by liking the Sevierville Golf Club Facebook page.
Sevierville Police Department officers will be offering child fingerprinting and safety information tomorrow, Saturday, February 23, 2019. The free event will take place from 11AM-2PM at Family Dollar, 120 East Main Street.
SPD highly recommends that parents keep their child’s fingerprints and a recent photo on hand, so that they can be used in the event the child is lost or abducted.
“We are fortunate to live in an area with a low crime rate, however, I cannot over emphasize the importance of being prepared in case your child becomes lost or is abducted,” said SPD Chief Joseph Manning. “This information would greatly assist law enforcement personnel in locating your child.”
When not responding to calls for service and performing their regular job duties, Sevierville Fire Department staff is staying busy getting the new headquarters ready to open.
“So far, our fire marshal and fire inspector have moved in” to the new headquarters, said SFD Chief Matt Henderson. “After the radio system and exhaust removal system are installed later this week, we’ll be able to shift our operations to the new facility. The goal is to be responding to calls for service by the end of this month from our new home.” A grand opening has been scheduled for April 5; details will be released closer to date.
