Nashville Council approves Angel for Autism 5K route

By Todd Marver


At its Thursday, September 7 meeting, the Nashville City Council approved the route for the Angel for Autism 5K race on Saturday, September 30 starting at 8 a.m.


Kristen Storey, president of Angel for Autism, said it will be the same route as it was last year. She said the racers will all meet at the Community Center in Nashville and will take off on Broadway and then go out towards the country like they did last year.


“We don’t cross any major highways. We’ve got that squared away. It’s a much better route. We really don’t need any roads closed or anything like that. It’s the same as last year,” she said.


Storey said all the racers come out onto Broadway and stand there for a minute until they take off. She said that last year, a Nashville Police officer stood at Lebanon and Broadway for about 15 minutes starting at 8 a.m. to keep cars from coming that direction.


“I have touched base with Greg Schorfheide for the county road, so that’s approved, so this would just be for the city roads here in town,” she said.


Mayor Raymond Kolweier said although the road doesn’t need to be closed, they approved the route, so that Angel for Autism can use the road and clear up any questions anybody may have.


The council approved a resolution for the road closure for the Hometown Christmas parade on December 2.


“They were here at the last meeting to outline the route. They’d like to have the road closed like they did the other years,” Kolweier said.


The council approved all-trash days in October. Alderman Doug Hargan reported that street supervisor Logan Gill wanted to have all-trash days on Saturday, October 7; Wednesday, October 11; and Saturday, October 14.


“(Gill) said those dates work out well for the dumpster rental and Caterpillar rental. The location will be the same as past years. The same lot as the burn pile at the compost site. We cannot take batteries, tires, hazardous liquids, chemicals, televisions and electronics,” he said.


The council approved a resolution authorizing Kolweier and City Clerk Terrie Kurwicki to execute a U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development Agency Right of Way Certificate Form. Kolweier said this is part of the Rural Development loan application that they’re working on.


The council approved a Conflict of Interest and Ethics Policy for the City of Nashville. Kolweier said this is part of the Rural Development requirement for the loan.


The council approved being a silver sponsor for the Washington County Hospital golf scramble on Friday, October 6 in the amount of $250.  Last year the city was also a silver sponsor for $250. The money will come from the city’s gaming fund.


“All proceeds go towards enhancing patient care and accessibility, which I think is a good cause,” Alderman Kelly Sheridan said.


Kolweier said the council will approve the audit at the September 21 meeting. He said all council members should have a copy of the audit that has been prepared and they all can read it from cover to cover between now and the next meeting.


Alderman Shawn Kabat reported that the Nashville Police officer that was involved in an altercation last month is back to work.


Police Chief Brian Fletcher reported officer Drew Knope started Sunday, September 10 full-time.  He said they’re still looking for part-time officers and they’re still waiting for the police squad car.


Hargan gave the August recycling report. He said 187 residents used the service for a total of 7,540 pounds, which translates to 3.77 tons.


Gill said the last oiling day was scheduled for Monday, September 11, weather permitting.


Kabat asked if all the oiling got done for Enterprise and Mockingbird and Gill responded they had to wait on the schedule for that for the crack sealant.
