Clarksville City Council Regular Session Budget Report – Part I, June 9th, 2013

 

Clarksville City Council - Ward 10Clarksville, TN – I don’t know if there is a Guinness Book record for long council meetings, but I believe we would qualify after Thursday’s regular session. The meeting started at 6:55om Thursday and ended about 2:20am Friday morning.

Things started mild enough, then got feisty and progressed downhill to the point that at the end of the meeting Councilman James Lewis stormed over to Councilman David Allen as they were leaving and said he would see him outside. Police were requested to go outside to ensure the situation did not turn into a knock down and drag out affair.

Clarksville City Council; What’s new? Not much

 

City of ClarksvilleClarksville TN – The 2013 edition of the Clarksville city council was sworn in this week. They also held their first official meeting of the year. So what’s new?

Not much.

Voters had real opportunity to make change this past November, but as we’ve seen, we say we want change, but we’re not willing to vote for it. It’s a real curiosity to me that with all the complaining, and the obvious need for something to change, the voters just don’t seem to care.

Hank BonecutterRecently, a public records request made by local attorney Mark Rassas, got a lot of people’s attention, when he asked the city of Clarksville for the e-mails of all city councilmen.  Everybody wondered the same thing; “What’s he looking for?”
