This is a follow-up to my earlier post introducing a tentative schedule for this year’s Council budget process. As part of the process, Budget Committee Vice Chair Toombs and I will conduct six community budget meetings around the county.
Here’s the schedule for the community budget meetings:
February 25, 6:00 to 7:30 PM: Northwest Family YMCA, 3700 Ashland City Highway, Nashville, TN 37218
February 26, 6:30 to 8:00 PM: Smith Springs Community Center, 2801 Smith Springs Road, Nashville, TN 37217
March 4, 6:00 to 7:30 PM: Studio 615, 272 Broadmoor Drive, Nashville, TN 37207
March 9, 6:00 to 7:30 PM: Church of Christ in Green Hills, 3805 Granny White Pike, Nashville, TN 37204
March 10, 6:00 to 7:30 PM: Nashville Public Library Bellevue Branch, 720 Baugh Road, Nashville, TN 37221
March 12, 6:00 to 7:30 PM: Nashville Public Library Hermitage Branch, 3700 James Kay Lane, Hermitage, TN 37076
The idea behind these meetings is to give the public an opportunity to see and hear the budget information that the Council has seen and heard over the last 90 days. During that time, the Council heard from the Comptroller for the State of Tennessee and Metro Finance Director Crumbo about the size and scope of the city’s budget problems and the types of solutions that are available. We want to make sure the public has this same information and an opportunity to talk about it before Mayor Cooper presents his budget on March 31, 2020.
Please share the schedule for these meetings and make plans to attend.
UPDATED: January 27, 2020, to add final date and location for the March 12 meeting.
