Hamilton County, TN (WDEF) – An anonymous donation to Enterprise South Nature Park has a Hamilton County Commissioner concerned with future implications.
Enterprise South’s Nature Park will receive about 850 thousand dollars to upgrade its cycling trail. An anonymous donor will cover most of the cost.
The generous offer raised concerns for Hamilton County Commissioner Tim Boyd. Commissioner Boyd says he would prefer to know more on who is providing large amounts of money to the county, its government, and its officials.
“Somebody that comes up to any governmental agency with almost one million dollars of gift money, I think the public is pretty curious as to where that money is coming from because what kind of down the road influence might this individual or organization have with elected officials who received the money.”
Commissioner Boyd says he requested documents of historical information relating to the donation.
