Henry County, Tenn. will see its third county trustee of the year take office next week.

The move comes after interim trustee Leisa Wimberley announced her plans to leave after losing the Democratic primary for the post earlier this month. She will be taking a job with the Paris Housing Authority. 


The Henry County Commission has approved an investment of up to $5 million with First Tennessee Bank, in an attempt to jumpstart interest earnings.

Henry County Trustee David Stone estimates the county will reap $50,000 in interest earnings this year. That’s down from 2006, when Henry County earned more than $400,000 from its investments.
