NOLENSVILLE (X- YRS. LATE!) CONSIDERS ROAD TAX ON NEW HOMES~$3,009 Per New Home*













*Plus $1/SQ. Ft.--- new tax per house from
County on 7/1/07! Total tax to date on a
new house would be over $4,000 ++.. the
highest in the midstate! One exception is
Cheatham county with over $7,000 per
new home as of 1999.

"Some fear new fees will force developers
to build elsewhere! " DUH! How bad would
that be? Add over 1,000 new families every
year for the next seven years or more!


Finally, after some 16
housing develop-
ments surrounding town of Nolensville that
weren't required to pay one penny for im-
pact fees
the town board has realized how
many millions of dollars
the town has lost!

The dirty big secret is that before approving
any development the town is required to file
a "plan of service" with state that guarantees
each development will receive adequate fire,
police and road maintenance.

Wonder where all 16 "plans of service" for
developments
in and around Nolensville
are filed? Look for a round file.

The system is "broke" since 16 develop-
ments to date have been approved by
town board with NO MONEY FOR INFRA-
STRUCTURE?
Suddenly we need very
large IMPACT FEES? Very poor plan!

In today's paper the Mayor says.."If folks
moved in (to developments) and we didn't
have impact fees they would say 'We can't
get around,' and we (town) said 'We can't
pay for that,' THAT'S IRRESPONSIBLE
GOVERNMENT! Well golly gee whiz?

Nolensville has an irresponsible town
board approving 16 or more sub-
divisions to date with NO
MONEY TO
SERVICE THEM!

New impact
fees do not necessarily mean
the developers will go away! Surprise.....
surprise...developers seeking approval
from the town will file law suits one after
another against the new fees!

Why? Because the 16 developers already
approved and now
building DIDN'T HAVE
TO PAY IMPACT FEES!

Ever wonder where our town's so-called
planning commission has been? Absolute
miserable track record=toothless tiger!
How come they didn't demand impact fees?
Don't ask where prior two Mayor's were..
everybody knows!
This new Mayor just
maybe can get some impact fees in place...
but it will be a very tough fight having
inherited a mess! Town will need a very
large "legal fees" budget for law suits.

BOTTOM LINE--Nolensville needs to take a
"time-out" and create a plan that will protect
our town and put it on a sound fiscal plan.
Hire a professional "outside AUDIT" of town
administration from top to bottom and then
just DO WHAT IT RECOMMENDS ASAP!


PS: tell town board to hire a 24/7 town mgr./
administrator--an experienced professional
like Franklin and Brentwood.

Thank you Mayor Knapper and Vice Mayor Dugger for ten years of irresponsible town government. Sad to say Dugger is still carrying on Knapper's nonsense. Current Mayor Lothers needs a miracle and somebody to watch her back. If she fails..Dugger/Alexander will assume the politically correct position "Don't look at us..its not our fault" the Mayor did it.
