A meeting was recently held with the developer Mr. McCanless and his attorney on development progress and remediation of problems. Alderman Snyder asked for a written update on the project.
There was no official Engineering report, but Alderman Patrick read an e-mail update from Don Swartz on the Sunset Road improvement project.

They discussed the alternate route for Nolensville Road around the Historic District. The TDOT officials indicated further opportunity to move up on the TDOT priority list would be available after the upcoming gubernatorial election.
Fire Chief Brian Moat offered a briefing on fire hydrant maintenance. He is working with the Nolensville College Grove Utility District to come up with a long-term plan, as State law does not require water utility boards to maintain hydrants.

The NVFD will renew the administrative captain position for the new fiscal year. There are also mutual aid agreements in place with neighboring fire departments to cover outlying areas. Alderman Snyder voiced appreciation to the fire department for their assistance with the Star Spangled Celebration.

There was no official report for the Public Works Department.
On behalf of the Town Events Committee, Alderman Snyder reported that one of the partners for the Star Spangled Celebration, MTSU, has led the charge on event production safety classes following the Las Vegas event shooting. The entire MTSU production team received full college credit in the field for the Town’s Star Spangled event.
Ms. Kelley Crummitt reported for the Trees and Trails Committee. The committee is looking for a map for the trail head kiosk. They are still interested in holding a workshop and are still looking for volunteers.
