Clarksville City Councilwoman, Ward 11

Clarksville City Council - Ward 11Clarksville, TN – I held my 39th Town Hall Meeting last night, since being elected to City Council. One of my campaign promises was to hold regular monthly meetings, and with one or two exceptions, I have done so.

It is important to me that people know that they can come and voice their opinion, give me info on things they need help with and tell me their ideas for how Clarksville can grow and be the best it can be.

Comments by Clarksville City Councilman Bill Summers on the City Executive and Special Session Agenda for October 27th

City of ClarksvillePlease note the Special Session agenda listed below on Ordinance 36-2011-12.  The city is offering to pay $100,000 for 26 acres of land that is engineered and used for rain/storm storage.
