The HOA sponsors a liaison to the Blount County Commission to maintain a close relationship and protect our interests. Dick Brown, our current liaison, attends meetings and work sessions of the County Commission. He represents the HOA at these meetings, offers input, and reports back to the Board any items that are of interest to, or directly affect Smoke Rise. He is accompanied by Dolores Fort, the HOA Secretary. Others who would like to attend the meetings are welcome. The work sessions are on Thursday before the regular Monday meetings. Meetings start at 9:00 AM.
