Five New Business Licenses Okayed For City


Paris, Tenn.—The city of Paris is continuing its positive trend in retail sales. At tonight’s city commission meeting, Finance Director Traci Pillow said sales were up over 6% for the month of August compared to August of last year and up over 6.5% for the fiscal year to date.


General Fund & Solid Waste expenditures exceeded revenues in September.  The city had extra expenses in September which included equipment that was purchased for the Street Department and the Landfill.  Also, $152,000 for signalization at Jim Adams/Volunteer Drive, but Pillow pointed out the city did receive a grant for that project and will be reimbursed by the State for that expense.


The city hired one full-time employee:  a new Patrolman, Justin Harden and one part-time employee at KPAC, John Kinsland.


Five new business licenses were issued in September: T.C.S. (Office & Commercial Building Cleaning), Renovation Cleaning Concepts (Janitorial Cleaning), Baby Love 4D Imaging (Photography), Mousto Pasta Grill (Restaurant in old Lepanto Building), Perfect TN Pizza DBA Papa John’s Pizza (New Owner)
