    Updated FAQs about proposed 50 cent rate correction
    June 10, 2018 As we get into the last few weeks of the Metro budget process, I have updated my frequently asked question list. You can see it here. Also, for a longer discussion of the budget, check out the Nashville Sounding Board interview that Council member Tanaka Vercher and I gave a few days ago.

    I'm going to keep doing my job
    June 3, 2018 With David Briley's win on May 24, he has formally resigned as Vice Mayor. The vacancy will be filled in the scheduled August 2, 2018 election (perhaps followed by a runoff five weeks after that). I want to thank the many supporters who have encouraged me to run for Vice Mayor.

What was in the soccer stadium bond resolution?

346 21st Avenue North

    What was in the soccer stadium bond resolution?
    May 31, 2018 It looks like the Council has a new ordinance to consider on first reading next week that is aimed at removing the 10 acres of development from the soccer stadium deal. When thinking about this latest effort to remove the 10 acres, I think it is worth reviewing what the Council actually passed last year.

    What is the opposite of land banking?
    May 21, 2018 The purpose of a land bank is to save surplus real estate to be available for future affordable housing developments. Since the cost of land in Nashville is what makes affordability difficult, land banking is an important tool for affordable housing.

Out of step with historic practice

    Out of step with historic practice
    May 18, 2018 Metro handled its property tax rates in a historically unusual way last year. Most of the time when Metro has done a periodic property value reassessment (which is required to be revenue neutral), Metro has simultaneously raised the property tax rate.

    The budget problem and the proposal
    May 18, 2018 For important background about the history of tax rates and property value reassessments, read this first. And also please read my May 11 post about this year's budget. The central premise of that post was that the "Metro government botched the...resetting of property tax rates last year."
