Bright & Early: The Recession Lives On Edition

Good morning, Nashville. As part of a last-ditch effort to salvage some jobs within Metro, the city council will be going back over some budget revisions tonight that will hopefully save 17 positions. In order to come up with the extra money, the proposed amendments would shave off some funds from the Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Country Music Hall of Fame, as well as pulling some additional money from the rainy day fund. And apparently this is the first time in Metro’s history that this year’s budget is actually less than last year’s.

A year ago on Nashvillest: Checked out one of the best ways in town to not get a DUI (or worse?), hugged our Sounds, dreamed of free root beer floats, busted some not-so-bright criminals on Craigslist, and braced ourselves for the Bible theme park.
