Holston Electric Cooperative held a groundbreaking ceremony on October 17, 2017 at 4:00 pm for the new Russellville Branch Office located at 6585 E. Andrew Johnson Hwy in Russellville, TN.
This project represents a culmination of planning to create a facility which will serve the residents of Russellville, Morristown, Whitesburg and Bulls Gap. Recognizing the need for a public meeting space, the new structure will also provide an auditorium for membership to utilize. Since last year, the board of directors, general manager, and management team have worked with an architectural firm and a general contractor to develop and design a branch office to optimize customer service and reduce traffic impairments.
“Holston Electric Cooperative is investing in the needs of our members in Hamblen County,” stated General Manager Jimmy Sandlin. “This upgrade has been years in the making as we waited for decisions concerning the new road. We are pleased and excited to begin our journey into construction with a proposed completion date in 2018.”
