If found liable, the Judge may assess court costs and fines. State law mandates that courts collect a State Litigation Tax on all cases that are litigated.

Payment for court costs, fines and the state-mandated litigation tax are to be paid within ten (10) days after your scheduled court date.
Court costs are typically assessed at $100 and remain at the Judge’s discretion. Fines for ordinance violations may be up to $50/day for every day that the violation exists. Automated traffic enforcement (red light camera) violations have a civil penalty of $50 per violation.
All court costs and fines for ordinance violations are to be paid to the Town of Farragut and can be paid in person or by mail at the Farragut Town Hall, 11408 Municipal Center Drive, Farragut, TN 37934.

The field allocation process allows groups to rent a large amount of time prior to the next season and offers an installment method of payment. This process is done twice a year; once in January for the spring/summer season and again in June for the fall/winter rental season. Tournament rentals are also available. For more information on field rentals, click here.

The Stormwater Advisory Committee (SAC) meets every second Thursday of the month at 3:30 p.m. at Town Hall.
Some things to keep in mind before emptying your pool:- chlorine should be allowed to dissipate for a few days prior to discharge- discharge should be in a grassy area, as far away from waters of the state (Turkey Creek, Little Turkey Creek or Fort Loudoun Lake) as possible- rate of discharge should be such as to maximize infiltration into soil without forming a point source and - no soil erosion should occur. This policy applies only to pools that use chlorine as a disinfectant. Other disinfection products are not covered by this policy. Discharges from pools that use other disinfection products must either be routed to a sanitary sewer, or obtain a no-discharge (land application) state operating permit or point source discharge (NPDES) permit.
So in short, yes, it is allowable to discharge your pool over your lawn. Just make sure you let the chlorine dissipate for several days before doing so and make sure the discharge is slow and steady to optimize infiltration.
The Town of Farragut is partnering with the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) to:
1. Promote the NWF Certified Wildlife Habitat Program to our community in order to educate citizens about easy ways they can support wildlife, specifically birds, bees, bats and butterflies in their own outdoor spaces, and
2. Work towards national recognition as a Community Wildlife Habitat.
Farragut is one of the best places to live in the region and, as a result, has been undergoing continuous growth for many years. Through the Community Wildlife Habitat program, the Town will work with its citizens to conserve and protect its environment while creating more well-connected habitats allowing wildlife like birds, bees, and butterflies to continue to thrive.
The Community Wildlife Habitat certification program has been running successfully for more than 40 years, with more than 100 communities certified nationwide. The certification will put Farragut’s name on the national map alongside other communities who have shown a commitment to creating and nurturing natural habitat.
The Farragut Wonderful Wildlife program is a community initiative largely dependent upon the participation and involvement of its residents for success. For Farragut to become a Community Wildlife Habitat it needs to meet a certain threshold in terms of minimum number of homes, schools and common areas that get the certification. As a resident you can do multiple things to contribute:
1. Register your own backyard or outdoor space for certification
2. Spread the word! Talk to and encourage your extended family, friends, neighbors, neighborhood schools etc. to sign-up for and participate in the program. Invite friends to take a tour of your backyard habitat once you get certified.
3. Get involved, participate and volunteer in environmental outreach programs that the Town organizes.
The cost to certify a yard or garden is $20. Schoolyards certify for FREE. The fee can be paid online when you fill in your application. A rebate program is being set up through a partnership with the Water Quality Forum. Contact Lori Saal (email@example.com or 966-7057) to learn more.
The fee helps NWF increase declining habitat for bees, butterflies, birds and other wildlife nationwide! Additional benefits include:
1. A personalized certificate once your habitat is certified.
2. 10 percent off NWF catalog merchandise, such as a yard sign proudly declaring your yard as a certified Wildlife Habitat.
3. One full-year’s membership to NWF and a one-year subscription to its National Wildlife magazine.
NWF sells signs online. Please visit the online store to purchase your sign.
Whether participating in this program or not, one can always see snakes and other wildlife in Tennessee backyards. Participants in this program are typically satisfied with seeing an increase in birds, and insect pollinators, like bees and butterflies, in their yards and do not see increases in dangerous wildlife. Certainly, we ask that you use caution if you see an animal in your yard or space that is unfamiliar to you, and move a safe distance away.
The Knox County Sheriff’s Office Animal Control Division provides quality enforcement pertaining to public safety, animal control, and animal welfare. For all animal control calls 215-2444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, due to privacy concerns, we are unable to share any names. We would encourage you to talk to others in your neighborhood and local community groups.
You can still take part in the certification program. If you have a porch or a balcony you can use that to create a wildlife habitat. You will use the same application as people with backyards to apply for the certification. You may also want to consider participating by encouraging others to get certified. Consider talking to your neighborhood school or an official who takes care of the park/playground/common area in your neighborhood about becoming a certified habitat.
The certification is a way for you to personally demonstrate that you manage your yard to be wildlife-friendly. When you move the certification for your yard ends, but you can recertify at your new location! The certification is not a legal document like a deed or an easement. The certification is a tool for you to look at simple changes that you can make in your own yard to create a beautiful and healthy space for you and the birds, bees, and butterflies that visit you there.
