The Greene County (Tennessee) Commission's Records Committee was told Thursday that because of a missed deadline, the T. Elmer Cox Historical and Genealogical Library will not get the city and county funding needed to purchase a new microfilm reader/printer for the library.
The Town of Greeneville had promised to allocate $1,000 for the purchase of the reader/printer, but the one company that bid on it in December missed the deadline the town had imposed to receive bids.
The Greene County government had already allocated $3,500 for the purchase of the new reader/printer for the library. Based on the commitment from the county, the city had agreed to "front" an additional $2,500 that they would later deduct from the city's budget for the genealogical library, in the next fiscal year.
