Tennessee Farmland Legacy Conference

Many of you will remember Cumberland Region Tomorrow (“CRT”) – I had posted their own coverage of our Comprehensive Growth Plan (“CGP”).

It has been a privilege working with Bridget Jones of CRT, as she has provided us with a great deal of insight and advice in coordinating and in moving forward with the CGP.
Recently, Robertson County Chamber of Commerce CEO Margot Fosnes and Mayor Bradley (I was also invited, but regretfully could not attend because of worked related scheduling) attending CRT’s “Farmland Legacy Conference” – both had an opportunity to share with the conference attendees what is going on with our CGP.
Here are video excerpts from that conference – please take a moment to check it out.

December Commission Packet

Many of you may know this already, but just as a reminder, our “December Commission Packet” can be found here. They are regularly posted on the Robertson County website approximately a week before each Regular Meeting of the Robertson County Commission.

As you know, the “commission packets” are our monthly agendas for the Robertson County Commission “Regular Meetings.”

Federal, State and Local Inmates: What is OUR Responsibility?

How might this apply to Robertson County? Well, in my humble opinion, this County relies too much on “state” (“Tennessee Department of Corrections” or “TDOC”)) prisoners as well as federal prisoners to – and, I quote folks around government - “make” money or “generate revenues.” You are reading this correctly, there are folks in and around your county government who believe that “the jail” (the “Robertson County Detention Facility”) is an opportunity to increase our county revenues.
