The Nashville City Council met on Thursday, April 26, for their second regular meeting for the month.

The council approved a collective bargaining agreement with the Fraternal order of Police, starting on May 1, 2018 through April 30, 2021.

That three year contract was negotiated between the city attorney and the police department.

Police Chief Brian Fletcher also announced that next meeting, the council will vote on new video recording equipment, which will be used in their interview room.

They will also discuss on the possibility of installing one or two new phone lines, which can be recorded.

Currently, officers have to go to the Sheriff’s Department if they want to record phone calls, so having the ability to record at the Police Department will be beneficial.

Those items will be discussed next meeting.

Nashville Mayor Eric Rolf wanted to announce to Nashville residents that starting now, all houses will be issued warnings for violations of city ordinances.

That includes basic maintenance on yards and on the house, tall grass, trash in yards, tree limbs and other items.

Residents will be fined for being in violation of any ordinances inside the city.

The sewer plant started a new position and hired someone to fill that position.

Caleb Harper was approved by the council, where he will start working on May 7.

The council also wanted to announce that hydrant flushing has been completed.

The Planning Commission will also be holding a meeting on Thursday, April 26, which is open to the public at the Public Works building.

The city also will officially be purchasing the Spenner property, with a signed contract on Friday, April 27.

The next city council meeting is set for Thursday, May 3.
