As previously reported on KNIA/KRLS news the Knoxville City Council discussed renaming Newbold Drive at their last meeting due to E 911 issues. Since then Mayor Don Zoutte has appointed a naming committee who met this week to discuss the matter. At the quick meeting the committee voted unanimously to change the street’s name to Weiler Drive as that is the primary landowner on the road. The board also unanimously voted to recommend the City Council waive the 45 day waiting period for the name change to be approved. The City Council will vote on the recommendation at Monday’s meeting.
