Council looks at town's needs during retreat
NASHVILLE - Personnel needs, equipment needs and future growth needs topped the list of items discussed during Nashville's 2007-2008 Annual Budget Retreat, held last Tuesday.

Several new positions were recommended in departments including the library and fire department. The library requested three additional part-time employees while the fire department requested an additional fire engineer.

In other departments, such as public works and public utilities, Town Manager Preston Mitchell told council members that several retired employees had expressed interest in working part-time. Mitchell said he suggested utilizing those on an as-needed basis.

Equipment needs were also given by department heads in memos to the council.
The council also discussed priorities for the coming years. On the list was to improve I&I, recreational opportunities, transportation routes, public safety, town entrance corridors, town appearance and continue economic development. Mitchell told the board that these items were not necessarily to priorities to accomplish by next year but instead, were items that could be looked at over the next few years.

A retreat is held every year to give council members an opportunity to look at and discuss departmental needs before the budget is put together. Mitchell said he expects to present the preliminary budget to the council in May. Several budget meetings will follow before the budget is adopted.
