Good morning, Nashville. Food truck owners who are eager to arrive at an agreement with Metro will have to wait a bit longer… again. Metro Traffic & Parking Commission has now deferred making a decision on regulations indefinitely, after a few months of “come back next month.” The commission will instead work with other Metro agencies to draft a set of regulations to present to Metro Council, and food truck owners will keep serving us their tasty food in the meantime.
- Dropped. All charges against Occupy Nashville protestors arrested at the end of October have officially been dropped and will be expunged from their records. Protestors are planning to stay in Legislative Plaza, and are currently making plans to winterize the encampment.
- You don’t say? From the department of Things We Didn’t Need An Investigation To Tell You, a lot of Nashville’s cabbies are bad at driving! A News 2 investigation has discovered that many cab drivers have been allowed to go to traffic school multiple times in order to stay on the streets.
- No 800 numbers for this guy. Upset over the inferior preparation of his pizza, a 28-year-old man threw a homemade explosive through the window of Sicilian Pizza on Church Street. Employees were able to detain him until police arrived.
- Bits & pieces. More than 5,000 people ran the Mayor’s Challenge 5k downtown this weekend … Please don’t feed the bears … Say goodbye to the last TCBY in Middle Tennessee … Japanese restaurant Goten is being sold after 25 years in Nashville … Rain, rain, rain on the radar … A fuel spill closed I-40E for about three hours early this morning near Charlotte Pike … a Philly-to-Dallas American Airlines flight safely made an emergency stop in Nashville yesterday .. TVA fuel costs will rise about 2.8% in December.
