um…about the budget…

227 15th Avenue North

    um...about the budget...
    May 11, 2018 The proposed FY19 Metro budget has been out for ten days now...and it's not good...and this is just the first year of a multi-year problem. The quick top line summary is that the proposed budget would renege on legislation passed last June for employee cost of living increases and gives our schools only $5 million of the approximately $45 million that MNPS asked for.

    TIF step-by-step
    May 7, 2018 With the budget crunch this year, many people are asking legitimate questions about when and how tax increment financing (TIF) is used. Some of those conversations are getting bogged down in trying to understand exactly how TIF dollars flow. This post is not about the important questions of how and when to use TIF.

    Storm has been brewing for a while...
    May 5, 2018 People in Nashville are understandably angry about having a tight budget in boom times. But this storm has been brewing for a while. During the 2015 election season, one of the things that voters all around the county wanted to talk about most was "how come I've got problems in my part of town and we spend all that money downtown?"

    CLOSE Throw a stone in Nashville on Saturday and you'll hit a place that is having some sort of Cinco de Mayo celebration. The date commemorates the Mexican Army's victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. In Mexico, the date is celebrated regionally.

    Chasing Down Line 7777
    May 2, 2018 I've talked to some MNPS advocates who are bothered annually by Line 7777 in the MNPS budget. It's called Property Tax Refund and is just over $9 million for the upcoming fiscal year. See page 37 of 42 in the proposed MNPS budget. Here's what that is...

Craft Brewers Conference Brings Some Amazing Events to Town

Meanwhile, at TailGate Brewery Music Row at 1538 Demonbreun Street:

    Craft Brewers Conference Brings Some Amazing Events to Town
    It's finally upon us. The much anticipated Craft Beer Conference is descending on Nashville's Music City Center next week April 30 rough May 3, and while it's primarily for the trade instead of consumer-focused, just the fact that thousands of talented brewers will be in town means that there will be tasting events all over the city.

    CLOSE Another year, another marathon. Or half-marathon, for some runners. Heck, some people even walk the half. My participation? I carb-load in solidarity. Everyone knows you long-distance runner-warriors need to pile on those carbs for energy. Those of us for whom "marathon" is generally preceded by "Netflix" also need our energy.

    Nashville property tax shortfall: Large commercial owners took home 80% of reduction
