Congressman Mark Green (R-TN-07), who represents Montgomery County, endorsed District Attorney Robert Nash in his bid for another term in the position.
Nash, who has lived in Clarksville for more than four decades, is running to serve the 19th Judicial District, after Governor Bill Lee appointed him to the role in 2021.
Metro Nashville City Council is considering a complete overhaul of street parking through a proposed “Smart Parking Program.” The legislation would overhaul the current street parking system (located as item number 44 under Bills on Second Reading). It would allow contractors to enforce parking violations; shift court date notifications, payment systems, and notice methods to a web and text message-based system; and implement license plate scanner technology. It would abolish free parking on Sundays and holidays, the use of coin-operated meters, and free parking perks for carbon neutral vehicles.
The bill also insisted on updating the term “meter maids” to “parking enforcement patrol.” The sponsors of the bill are Council members Freddie O’Connell, Robert Nash, Tonya Hancock, and Ginny Welsch.
