Nolensville News – Thursday, March 28th, 2024

Town Manager
The Town of Nolensville was recently given a grant from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation which is aimed at using State American Rescue Plan funds to implement water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure maintenance and improvement projects. We have selected a consulting engineering firm, Neel-Schaffer, Inc., to perform a Town-wide inventory and condition assessment of Nolensville’s stormwater assets, develop a Town-wide stormwater study, and develop plans for stormwater capital improvement projects resulting from the study’s recommendations. Teams of personnel will be seen around Nolensville collecting information on the Town’s stormwater system. They will be wearing bright-colored vests and carrying iPads and survey equipment to collect information on the storm infrastructure between March 20 and mid-June. If you have any questions, please contact Don Swartz, Town Engineer ( or Chuck Downham, Assistant Town Manager (

The Town of Nolensville is seeking public input on the Town’s first10-year parks and recreation master plan. This plan will outline priorities for Nolensville’s parks and recreation system for the next 10 years and is a requirement for the Town to receive grant funding from the state. Join us Monday April 8th from 5-7pm at Nolensville Town Hall to see the plans and give us your feedback. This will be open-house style event set-up with vision boards containing highlights from each section of the Master Plan. The input received from the community will help guide the recommendations in the Master Plan and help shape the future of Nolensville’s parks.

Police Department
This week, the Nolensville Police Department visited the office of the Bedford County Sheriff. We are preparing for a future police department facility and are looking at other newly constructed buildings as examples. We would like to thank Bedford County Sheriff Swing and Commissioner Miller for taking the time to help during this visit.  

The Nolensville Police Officers visited the Brentwood Police Department for a demonstration of the Star Chaser pursuit alternative. This device allows officers to project a device onto a fleeing vehicle that will track the movements of the vehicle until it can be found later. This device has the potential to reduce the risks that are associated with a close-in high-speed pursuit.   

Fire Department
We are excited to share that Michael O'Leary has been promoted to Lieutenant and Gregory Whaley has been promoted to Engineer. Ryan Gaffney was also recently promoted to Fire Captain. Each firefighter had to complete a promotional process made up of practical testing, written exams, real world scenarios, and interviews with panels. They have proven their qualifications through training and certifications and will do well in their new roles.

Congratulations to Mike Palmesi and Brenden Evans who have both successfully passed the pumper driver operator certification through the Tennessee Commission on Firefighting. This is a certification program requires several weeks of training prior to taking the practical and written tests for the Engineer positions.

This week, Lieutenant William Spradley completed the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) Urban Search and Rescue (US&R) Rescue Specialist Certificate. This series of courses and certifications both online and in person at TEEX trains members of rescue teams at the highest level to prepare them for action during structural collapse and other rescue operations.

The exterior building of our new fire station is nearing completion, and the site work has commenced. The curb is installed, and construction teams are preparing for the concrete drives and parking to be poured. On the inside of the building, the walls are up, and the drop ceilings are being installed with lights and speakers being added. The electrical transformer is set and permanent power is on.
