Commission disappointed with Expo Center vote
Tuesday, April 28, 2015

The Mt. Juliet Board of Commissioners were disappointed that the Wilson County Expo Center proposal was approved by the County Commission last week. 

An 86,000 square feet Expo Center was approved by the Wilson County Commission 17-7 Monday, April 20. The site will be at the James E. Ward Ag Center, and will not cost more than $10 million. 

“If it would have been here in Mt. Juliet, it would have been better,” said Mayor Ed Hagerty after the Board of Commissioners meeting Monday. 

The Board of Commissioners had passed a resolution the April 14 meeting asking the county to do a site analysis and financial feasibility study on the proposed site because they felt there were sites in Mt. Juliet that would work better. Hagerty said he did not receive any feedback from the resolution before the County Commissioner vote. 

Hagerty said he understood what County Mayor Randall Hutto was trying to do with the Expo Center, trying to draw tourism and bigger events to Wilson County, but he felt a site in Mt. Juliet would have better access to hotels and the airport. 

Hagerty said that the Board of Commissioners will be not taking anymore action on the matter, and are moving forward with City business.
