Montgomery County Animal Care and Control Closed Until Wednesday Morning

June 05, 2023 - MoCo Gov.

Montgomery County Animal Care and Control (MCACC) is closed until Wednesday, June 7, for disinfection and cleaning due to a puppy testing positive for Parvovirus this morning. 

“We had puppy litters that entered the shelter late last week and another litter today. The litters were healthy and active at the time of intake. During morning cleaning, staff discovered one of those puppies displaying symptoms of the Parvovirus and immediately isolated the puppy. The puppy has since tested positive for Parvovirus,” said MCACC Director Dave Kaske.

Currently, no other puppies or dogs display symptoms of the virus. Out of caution, MCACC is closed today and tomorrow to effectively clean and disinfect all areas according to shelter protocols. They will monitor the health of the animals closely and limit the intake of puppies under six months old for the health and safety of their animal population.

“We always encourage pet owners to adequately vaccinate their animals. Vaccinating your pet helps keep it safe and protects it against many contagious viruses. Keeping your pet vaccinated also protects against viruses in a shelter or boarding environment and protects other animals from your pet possibly transmitting viruses to a healthy population,” stated Kaske. 

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and cooperation in allowing our staff to adequately mitigate this situation,” added Kaske.

To check for updates on MCACC, visit their Facebook page or call (931)-648-5750.

County Mayor Appoints Sarah Fry as New Archives Director

June 02, 2023 - MoCo Gov.

Montgomery County, TN – Montgomery County Mayor Wes Golden has appointed Sarah Fry as the new Montgomery County Archivist.

Fry had served in the Montgomery County Archives Department since June 2017, when she began working as an archives clerk. In July 2020, Fry moved up to the position of archives technician, and most recently, she served as interim director since the retirement of former long-time Archivist Jill Hastings. 

“Preserving and adding to the history of Montgomery County is an important function in our community. People rely on our Archives Department to research family history and heritage, government documents, and many other historical treasures,” said Mayor Golden.

Before she was employed with Montgomery County, Fry worked as a financial aid counselor and consultant at Southeastern University and Anderson University between 2006 to 2017. Fry earned a master’s degree in public history from Middle Tennessee State University in 2016 and a bachelor’s in science from Southeastern University in 2006.

“I have a passion for history, and Montgomery County, Tennessee, is rich with fascinating people, government documentation, and events to share. Our county has changed tremendously since it was established in 1796, with many important stories and records during the past 227 years. It is a privilege for my staff and me to be the caretakers of our history and we will work diligently to ensure that it is made accessible and preserved for generations to come,” said Fry.

Montgomery County Archives serves as the official repository for county records and operates under Tennessee State law and under the direction of the Montgomery County Public Records Commission. The primary services are preserving Montgomery County Records and providing access to the information within those records for research.

New Eatery in Downtown Commons Space

May 25, 2023 - MoCo Gov.

Montgomery County Parks and Recreation accepted a bid proposal from the owners of two local eateries who came together to offer a new food option in the vendor space at the Downtown Commons beginning June 1. Joshua Perry of Burgasm Urban Eats and Steven Wolf of Johnny and June’s Italian Ice formed Wolf Down, a new option for quick on-the-go meals and frozen treats.

Wolf Down will be open Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10:30 a.m. – 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10:30 a.m. - 9 p.m., and Sunday 10:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. Menu options will include hot and cold sandwiches, salads, and other grab and go food options as well as Italian ice, custard shakes, and mocktails. They will also obtain a license to serve beer during Downtown at Sundown concerts and other activities at the Commons.

Montgomery County opened the bid process in early April and closed the bids in mid-May. Due to constraints on design, high utility bills, and fire codes, the new vendor cannot utilize fryers and is limited in using heat-producing cooking methods.

“We’re excited about the food and dessert options Wolf Down brings to Downtown Commons during shows and through the week to people who work and visit downtown Clarksville. Due to the expensive retrofits needed for code compliance, the space can no longer be used as a full-service kitchen. It will return to its original design as an ice cream and sandwich place,” said Director of Parks and Recreation Sally Burchett.

Wolf Down will be ready to serve people at the next Downtown at Sundown concert on June 2. Visit their Facebook page at to see the menu options.
