The Nashville City Council met on Thursday, July 20, for their regular meeting at 7 p.m.

Bob Miller, president of the board of the Community Center of Nashville, spoke to the council.

Miller went before the council to ask for the city’s help with the Community Center.

CCN started 13 years ago and has been running and available for citizens throughout that time.

They provide an area for exercise, business and recreation for everyone in the community to use.

Over the last few years, they have had some financial problems in regard to upkeep, repairs and utilities.

If they cannot raise enough funds, the building would be given to the city of Nashville.

The building is older and has had numerous repairs , including the addition of air conditioning and new lighting.

The roof, which cost roughly $40,000, needs repairs as well.

Multiple citizens are in charge of helping with costs and providing fundraisers to help with bills.  Miller asked the council if they could help them in anyway.

Mayor Erik Rolf said that they will meet at a later date to address this problem.


The second citizen to address the council was Tom Speedie of the Nashville Chamber of Commerce.

Speedie asked the council to donate $12,000 to help with the Chamber.

They have done this in the past, and they unanimously agreed to do so again.

The Chamber sponsors the Fall Festival, Moonlight Madness and other local events throughout the year.

Speedie also told the council that the Chamber is thinking of purchasing a billboard near I-64, or banners in town, to help promote those different events.

Golf Course Drone Photos

The evening’s final item was under the Golf Course, which earlier this week, had a drone photograph the entire course from an aerial viewpoint.

This was free and will be added to an app and a website for golfers.

Other Items

The council then approved a new ordinance in town, which will make appropriations to defray all necessary expenses and liabilities of the City of Nashville and Washington County for the Fiscal year, starting May 1, 2017, and ending April 30, 2018.

Under Gas, two permits were approved at two different locations for an LP transfer tank.

These were for Sisco Box Company and the Farmers Mid County Feed.

The board adjourned at 7:25 p.m.

The next city council meeting for Nashville will be held on Thursday, August 3.
