TVA names members of Regional Resource Stewardship Council TVA names members of Regional Resource Stewardship Council TVA announced the 19 members of the new Regional Resource Stewardship Council, created to help TVA develop strategies and policies and set priorities on the best practices for managing the natural resources of the Tennessee Valley. Herman Morris Jr., president of Memphis Light, Gas & Water, will represent the Memphis area on the council. TVA chairman Craven Crowell announced the creation of the council last summer, citing the need for public input now that the TVA board has responsibility for determining spending levels for resource management programs in the Tennessee Valley. Through the council, citizens will have the opportunity to advise TVA on the best resource management practices that ensure sustainable, smart growth. The council was established under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, which sets guidelines for establishing a group that provides advice or makes recommendations to an agency of the federal government. The U.S. General Services Administration concurred with the council's charter on Jan. 28. The TVA board appointed members to the council after receiving nominations from governors of the states served by TVA and recommendations from TVA customer organizations, community officials and interest groups. In addition to Morris, council members are Lee Baker, Newport, Tenn.; Jimmy Barnett, Sheffield, Ala.; State Sen. Roger Bedford, Jr., Russellville, Ala.; Austin Carroll, Hopkinsville, Ky.; Phil Comer, Dandridge, Tenn.; Ann Coulter, Chattanooga, Tenn.; Bill Forsyth, Murphy, N.C.; Mayor Thomas Griffith, Amory, Miss.; Julie Hardin, Knoxville, Tenn.; Al Mann, Benton, Ky.; Bob Matheny, South Pittsburg, Tenn.; Miles Mennell, Nashville, Tenn.; W.C. Nelson, Blairsville, Ga.; Elaine Patterson, Chattanooga, Tenn.; Bruce Shupp, Montgomery, Ala.; Mayor Eddie Smith, Jr., Holly Springs, Miss.; Stephen Smith, Knoxville, Tenn.; and Paul Teague, Parsons, Tenn. Smith will serve as council chairman and will work with members and TVA to prepare agendas for future meetings. Members will serve two years in accordance with the FACA and membership can be extended. Council meetings will be open to the public. The first meeting begins at 8 a.m. March 17 at the Chattanooga Marriott. Kate Jackson, TVA executive vice president of River System Operations and Environment and TVA's environmental executive, will serve as the designated federal officer for the council.
