Former GC Schools Maintenance Supervisor Indicted

A 10-month investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) ends with indictments against the Grundy County Schools Maintenance Supervisor.

The TBI began investigating Ricky Meeks in May 2014. During a meeting of the Grundy County Board of Education, a witness saw Meeks change a company’s bid for work at one of the schools so the company could win the bidding process.

He was suspended without pay.

On Monday, the Grundy County Grand Jury returned indictments for Meeks, charging the 51-year-old Altamont man with one count of Forgery, two counts of Official Misconduct, and one count of Tampering with Government Documents.

Tuesday, Meeks turned himself in to authorities at the Grundy County Jail, where he was booked and then released on a $15,000 bond.article.295716
