Town of Somerville's Finest Answer the Call to Adamsville, TN!

 

On October 26th, Adamsville was hit by straight-line winds reported to be over 75 miles per hour, taking out electric lines, gas lines, closing schools and the death of a beloved resident.  Many cities and towns across the Tennessee Valley were affected by this past week’s weather and several of our neighbors have received severe damage.  Adamsville Mayor David Leckner and City Administrator Steve Simon have reached out to other municipalities across the state for help, contacting Somerville Mayor Ronnie Neill and Town Administrator Bob Turner for assistance. The county mayor issued a state of emergency, saying they're now doing the biggest debris clean up in the county's history.

Operations Manager Franklin Stanford requested two of his best qualified men to aid in this request.  Christopher Glover and Tony McCulley (Pictured) both agreed to help immediately when asked.  Chris Glover has been with the Town of Somerville since 1999 and has done numerous jobs and is currently over all water treatment operations and is one of our most outstanding employees.  Tony McCulley has been with the Town since 2013.  Tony has exceeded expectations in every roll he has been asked to accomplish since his employment.  He has worked his way to the head of his department of Streets and Solid Waste.  Tony, along with Chris do many other jobs as well as their own.  “These two guys are part of an excellent Public Works staff that has a “can do” approach to anything pertaining to the citizens of Somerville and its customers.  We are proud to be able to assist and help our neighbors and are as equally proud of our hard working and caring staff.”

 

Adamsville, over a hour away from Somerville,  a town in Hardin and McNairy counties, Tennessee.  Adamsville is named after George D. Adams, who operated an inn and stagecoach stop in the 1840s. Adamsville's nickname is the "Biggest Little Town in Tennessee" and was the home of Sheriff Buford Pusser.
