HUNTINGDON (July 31) — Carroll County Properties Committee voted unanimously to gift a portion of land to West Tennessee Public Utilities during a July 31 meeting. Brent Dillahunty, general manager of WTPU made the request of the small parcel so WTPU could build a parking lot for its expanding workforce.
WTPU, based in Huntingdon, is a distributor of natural gas for five counties. It has aggressively extended its service lines to residential, agricultural, and industrial customers. In recent years, the company grew from 40 to 64 employees. Dillahunty said one of its planned service line expansions is in south Carroll County.
The parcel is located between the WTPU headquarters on Paris Street in Huntingdon and the adjacent Carroll County School District Central Office, which is a county-owned facility.
The new property line is along the middle of the ditch that will separate the two properties. WTPU has maintained the lawn on the requested area for years. Additionally, the property has high tension overhead power lines, which precludes any real estate development other than a parking lot or storage area.
The Committee voted to gift the small area of land. WTPU must pay the legal fees involved in the transfer.
