Hope ebbs as deadline nears

The McNairy County Board of Education failed to choose a site for the proposed new Selmer Elementary School at its meeting last Thursday. They also failed to adopt a funding plan for SES and the proposed new school in Adamsville.

Project engineer Jev Vaughn said that he talked to Greg Littlefield’s secretary, of Littlifields Surveying of Savannah, and he said she told him the field work is done and he hoped to finish up drafting work last Wednesday and get it to Vaughn either last Wednesday or last Thursday. Vaughn said 
he called Littlefield twice last Thursday.

“As soon as I get a survey, it won’t take me long to get a site plan developed,” Vaughn said.
