Councilman Edmund Ford Jr. and Councilman Frank Colvett are excited to announce that they will be hosting a meeting to inform constituents as well as concerned citizens about the potential West Tennessee Veterans Home. The meeting will begin at 3:00 pm on Monday, October 23, 2017 in the City Council Conference Room located on the Fifth floor of City Hall at 125 N. Main Memphis, TN 38103.
This meeting will address potential plans for the construction of a second Veterans’ Home in this area. West Tennessee (as defined by the three major counties of Shelby, Fayette and Tipton) is host to the largest Veterans population in the state of Tennessee. Yet, these same Veterans have to travel outside the region for care. It is the Councilmen’s desire to end this terrible situation with much needed and proper care.
