Greensboro North mixed-use community will be a stop on Nashvilles proposed Northeast Corridor transit line

Dev. board committee recommends full bond pay off

IDB Ad Hoc members recommend county pay off TIF bonds

Keith Dennen, legal counsel for the Hendersonville Industrial Development Board, presented a memorandum report to its Ad Hoc Committee of Mike Fussell and Ed Spurlock at a special called meeting Wednesday morning. Dennen recommended that Sumner County pay off the bonds that back the Tax Increment Financing used for development of the Saundersville Road Extension, a bridge, and some infrastructure in Indian Lake Village by Halo Properties, LLC.

My suggestion would be for the county to pay off the bonds, Dennen stated. Saving six percent makes sense. My recommendation is to make a formal recommendation to the county. Fussell and Spurlock were in agreement with that recommendation and it moves forward to the full IDB which normally meets the second Thursday of the month.

United Way of Sumner County nears fundraising goal

Campaign enters final month only $43,000 below goal, a new record

Depending on the circumstances, 31 days can be an eternity, or the blink of an eye. For United Way of Sumner County staff and volunteers, the month of March will represent both.

As of March 1, the local charity has raised $672,000 during its 2011 campaign, which means only $43,000 more needs to be raised before March 31 to reach the organizations goal of $715,000. If the goal is reached, it will mark the best fundraising campaign in the 35-year history of the organization. According to United Way of Sumner County President/CEO Dana M. Given, the final four weeks of the campaign are critical in more ways than one.

Tax Scam Warning: Beware of Phony Refund Scheme

Senior Citizens, Working Families and Church Members Are Targets

City of Gallatin provides two public storm shelters

Gallatin city officials are spreading the word of two public locations that people can go for shelter in preparation of the anticipated storms today.

During the storm, go to the basement/dining hall of Gallatin City Hall on Main Street or the Gallatin Police Department on Franklin Street.
After the storm, if people are displaced from their homes, they may go to the Civic Center, assuming it is not damaged or inhabitable. An alternate site would the City Hall basement.

Officials have been asked about going to the Fire Halls, but it is very likely the firefighters will be out of the fire halls working the disasters and the fire halls have limited rooms where there are no windows.
People are reminded to stay away from windows. Go to a basement or an internal room, like a bathroom. Even climb in the tub and cover up with blankets or pillows to help prevent being cut by flying debris.

Here are other safety suggestions:

If a warning is issued or if threatening weather approaches:

In a home or building, move to a pre-designated shelter, such as a basement. If an underground shelter is not available, move to an interior room or hallway on the lowest floor and get under a sturdy piece of furniture. Stay away from windows. Get out of automobiles. Do not try to outrun a tornado in your car; instead, leave it immediately. Mobile homes, even if tied down, offer little protection from tornadoes and should be abandoned.

The Red Cross suggests that you assemble a "disaster supplies kit" that you keep in your shelter area. It should contain:

A first aid kit with essential medication in addition to the usual items. A battery powered radio, flashlight, and extra batteries. Canned and other non-perishable food and a hand operated can opener. Bottled water. Sturdy shoes and work gloves. Written instructions on how to turn off your homes utilities.
No Free Lunch in TDOT Project

Dear Editor,

Will Rogers wisely thought, When you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is to quit digging. As far as I can tell, December 2014 is nearly three years away. So why was a vote mandatory right this moment for realigning the Walton Ferry Road and Old Shackle Island road connection to a four-way intersection?

If it is because there is money available from the Federal Government to the tune of $4.6 million dollars, by now everyone should realize that the country is broke. Not only broke, but borrowing huge amounts of money from foreign countries that promote political ideals we disdain. This money that you may call a grant if you want to is based on a Federal Budget that requires you to pay higher taxes just to pay for the interest on that money. This is not free money by any definition of the word free. There is a reliable precept called the law of unintended consequences. We can no longer generalize where this money comes from and to be honest- Local, State, or Federal, it is all coming from us. We are paying the entire bill one way or the other not just the $1.2 million the city has to belly up.

County finances looking up

Sumner County Executive Anthony Holt projected a favorable view of the countys financial status in comments made to those attending the Government Relations Meeting held last week at Sumner Regional Medical Center.

As CEO of the county, a large part of my job is sharing the financial status of the county and I can tell you, I feel a whole lot better about it this year, Holt said. At the end of February, we are two-thirds through this fiscal year and this gives us a pretty good picture of how we are doing and, if trends hold true, we are going to be in good shape as far as revenues by the end of the year.

Holt reported that sales tax is a bright spot for the county. In December, collections were up 4.6 percent compared to budgeted revenues. We were worried we might be lower in January but we were actually up five percent, he said. Property taxes right now, we are about three percent above our projections. Wheel tax, we were down slightly last month but we are up one percent now. Business tax we are up one percent.
