Wheel tax increase fails, commissioners end 9+ hour meeting without alternative revenues


Shelby County Commissioners closed a more than nine-hour meeting Monday without identifying a way to fund debt service for a new Regional One Health campus or two new high schools. J. Richard Walker III, chair of emergency medicine at University of Tennessee Health Science Center, told commissioners Monday that out of all the hospitals downtown, there are only about 650 active beds for adults. Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville alone has 1,200 beds available.
