Clarksville, TN – This could be an interesting council session.

We may not need $120,000 we borrowed last year to buy land for the new fire station in the Exit 1 area if a land donation comes through. However, the mayor wants the council to approve borrowing $1.44 million to build that new fire station before we see if we could save $120,000 in loan costs. «Read the rest of this article»
