Clarksville City Council - Ward 10Clarksville, TN – Last Thursday night, I wrote that efforts to send either an update to the current outdated charter or the mayor’s version of the revised charter to the state for approval failed as neither received the 2/3 majority vote needed.

As you will recall the main purpose of both efforts was to fix the city’s recent strict interpretation of the current charter on people who do business with the city and were selected for city committees.
