From the Cleveland Daily Banner…

One of Bradley County’s representatives in the Tennessee State Legislature could be headed for a significant promotion in Nashville.

State Sen. Mike Bell confirmed Sunday he is actively seeking the position of state Senate Majority Leader.

According to a report Sunday by the USA Today Tennessee Network, Bell is one of two favorites to replace current Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris.

Norris was nominated last year by President Donald Trump for a federal judgeship in West Tennessee.

However, the calendar in Washington, D.C. for confirmation is not clear and Norris has said he will remain in Nashville until he receives the confirmation from the U.S. Senate.

Once Norris is confirmed, which is highly likely with a Republican-controlled Senate, Bell would likely face state Sen. Jack Johnson for the leadership post.

Also from The Banner…

Electric Division crews from Cleveland Utilities have been working closely with Bradley County government personnel and Conley Electric in upgrades of electric service and equipment at the fire-damaged Bradley County Courthouse.

Electric Division Voce President Bart Borden informed the Cleveland Board of Public Utilities in a recent session the work involves the removal of four overhead type of transformers from the electrical room in the basement of the courthouse.

The upgrade will involve the installation of a concrete transformer pad and pad-mounted transformer on the south side of the courthouse.

Conley Electric will be installing new underground conductors to the existing electrical main panels of the courthouse from the new transformer location.

Cleveland Utilities construction crews will replace the 33-year-old underground primary feeding the transformer. This work began in December.
