Bright & Early: Two Cents Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Last night’s Metro Council meeting got a little, er, colorful when the subject of the proposed fairgrounds expo center came up. Dozens of Nashvillians (possibly including everyone’s favorite Protest Chicken) found their way into the meeting after protesting the proposal outside City Hall earlier in the evening. As a result, the Council voted 31-6 to turn the meeting into a surprise public hearing during which about 40 folks stepped up to the microphone to express their concerns. Despite all that, the bill did pass its first reading.
