Good morning, Nashville. Your wait at the DMV might get a little bit longer soon. The Department of Safety has proposed cutting 26 driver’s license station workers to help make up for Tennessee’s budget deficit. These cuts are part of a long, long list of reductions proposed in the state budget hearings over the past few days. Also on the chopping block are 29 Tennessee Highway Patrol troopers, hundreds of millions of dollars in TennCare services, several education programs, mental health care services and some swimming pools. It’s shaping up to be a rough year.
- Metro Councilmen Michael Craddock and Eric Crafton may be up for running against Mayor Dean in the next election. Dean is currently unopposed, but potential candidates have until May 19th to file the paperwork.
- The weatherpeople are calling for everyone’s favorite “wintry mix” tomorrow morning and some actual snow possible on Sunday night and Monday. We’re hearing that Metro is already out coating the streets in brine.
- Bits & pieces. There are some stray dogs terrorizing Germantown … The feds raided the home of the Sommet Group’s former CEO earlier this week, but no property was removed … The Titans are expanding their search for a ‘Stache-replacement … Belmont has finally hired a replacement women’s soccer coach … Dozens of homes have been added to Metro’s flood buyout program.
