I am trying to find a house to rent in Maryville, but I have a question about the city services. If a house is located in Maryville, but not zoned for Maryville city schools (i.e. the schools are Blount schools), will that house still be serviced by the Maryville Police & Fire Departments, as well as Maryville city garbage/water/sewer, etc.? Thank you so much for your help!

Nope. It will be Blount County servicing if it is not within the city limits.

Thank you so much for the info! Do you happen to know how Blount County services compare to those of Maryville City? I am thinking that I would rather rent a house in Maryville City, but in case I cannot find one available, I am wondering how Blount County services are as well.

Well, that is a very subjective thing. Ok, my son has been an officer with Blount County Sheriff's Dept but I have always lived in Maryville city so here goes my 2 cents. Not even enough to buy a cup of coffee!

As far as I know most, if not all, residents are on septic system. I could be mistaken but I think that some residents are covered by city of Alcoa, some are covered by small water departments such as Tuckaleechee and Townsend,etc. It will just depend on where you live. There are still some wells in the area. When we first moved to Maryville city we were actually on septic and were made to convert to sewer. It depends on where you are in the county as to trash pickup (or not). The police is a sheriffs dept and they work in zones. They are generally very good but they have a lot of acres to cover. They also provide backup to Alcoa and Maryville (and vice versa) as needed. There is a lot of cooperation in the area. Fire protection is by subscription. It is $110 for the year or thousands of dollars per hour if you are not a subscriber and need their services. Again, not bad firefighters but they have to cover a lot of area. EMS is covered by Blount County Rural Metro. Schools are hit and miss and just depend on the particular school and teacher. If I were to live in the county I would try to be in the Heritage High feeder schools. I love living in Maryville but the taxes are high. It all comes down to choices. There are incredible views in Blount County and some great offerings. I would not mind living in the county if all things lined up (now that my kids are out of school). Find a good realtor and let them help you achieve your goals. Good luck!
