Bright & Early: The State Of Things Edition

Good morning, Nashville. This morning, Mayor Dean will be delivering his annual State of the Metro address at 10am in Riverfront Park. He’s expected to deliver all sorts of bad news about the proposed budget for next year, which will be presented to Metro after the address. As we’re all amply aware, it’s been a tough financial year for the city (and the rest of the universe) and we may end up losing some pretty big taxpaper services as a result. There’s been some talk of closing eight recycling centers, halting brush pickup, cutting library branches down to 20 hours per week, and closing our beloved super-secret Green Hills county clerk office that’s never crowded. You can watch the whole thing live on
