Good morning, Nashville. We may have overslept this morning, so here’s your abbreviated Bright & Early:
- After city officials voted to nearly double property taxes in LaVergne, a group of very upset business leaders are now petitioning to unincorporate the city. If that happens, all city officials will be out of a job, police and fire departments will disappear and LaVergne will merge into the rest of Rutherford County. [WKRN]
- There’s a new independent bookstore coming to town! [WKRN]
- Get moving, Nashville: Men’s Health Magazine says that we’re one of the least active cities in the country, but Mayor Dean begs to differ. [WKRN]
- Alignment Nashville scored a $50,000 grant from the Healthways Foundation to make Nashville’s school cafeterias a little healthier. [WTVF]
- Nissan donated five shiny new cars to the folks at the Nashville Zoo in hopes of helping out transportation throughout the park as well as for school programs. [WKRN]
- The Fisk University art battle continues. [WTVF]
- Hooray! The North Nashville and Green Hills satellite county clerk offices will remain open. [City Paper]
- Our city will be hosting the National Folk Festival for the next three years, which is expected to bring in $10-15 million each year. [WTVF]
