Henderson Judge Eddy Patterson to retire


Henderson Recorder Jim Garland announced the retirement of Henderson Judge Eddy Patterson during the Henderson Mayor and Board of Alderman meeting of November.
Serving for 36 years as city judge, his retirement will be effective at the end of the year.
Jim Garland told the board he is in the midst of discussions with a potential candidate, who is an attorney in Henderson, about the position and asked them if they had other candidates and if he should move forward with the current one. They had no more candidates and told him to continue talking to the individual about the position.
The Henderson Mayor and Board of Aldermen also approved the installation of street lights at Norchester Drive and Meadow Brook Drive, four on Norchester Drive and two on Meadow Brooke Drive. The installation cost is $800 per light. Residents on the streets will be notified of the projects.
In regards to the Henderson Police Department officer-involved shooting on Oct. 12 which resulted in Kyle Carter and Danielle Cook being placed on administrative leave, Police Chief Gary Davidson said, “There are no policy violations and I’m confident that they’ll get cleared soon.” The investigation is still being made by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
