(Covington, TN) Low enrollment has forced a Tipton County center serving adults, children and teens with special needs, to close it’s doors.

Parents with children, who depend on Tipton County’s Adult Developmental Center, were notified last Tuesday the center would close by the middle of August.

State funding helps pay for the center and another in nearby Ripley, but the rising cost to maintain both centers is overwhelming, especially with a significant drop in attendance this year.
