New Rocky Fork Road/Bridge Project "Was Blown Out of Proportion" Says Mayor!












Tennessean article says meeting
absences lead to confusion of this
project. OK let's look at some of
details in the newspaper article.
Now it seems the 58 missing pieces
of steel will cost some $350.

Ok that is good! Now it seems the
contractor has determined that no
undercutting of the roadway will
be required resulting in a $87,000
savings. Can we deduct this amount
from the $1.4 million contract award-
ed to the contractor?

Now what about the consultants'
recommendation to increase the
thickness of the roadway that will
cost $70,000 or more? Opps! There
went the savings of $87,000 that
was mentioned above?

Then the traffic light cost is still
hanging out there for some $100,
000 dollars. Who pays for that?

Mayor says "she has many different
eyes looking at this project so that
they are thorough." Last thursday's
board meeting was confusing and
lots of eyeballs were missing!

Why not have these excellent
management consultants present
an up-to-date cost analysis at the
next board meeting and tell us
how much money is really being
saved on Rocky Fork project?

Read about Spring Hill going over
their budget by 3 million dollars?
Nolensville just may be next??

The politically correct words here are what most of our society gets used to:

absent
sick
drug reaction
alcohol
more drugs
rehab.
I've heard she is quite dependent on antidepressant medication lately and has had problems with taking too much. We need answers.

Mayor tell Vice-Mayor Dugger to get some eye drops! He is confused over who is doing what? Tell Alderman Curtsinger to keep up the good work checking on every detail.Wake up Alexander and Thomas!

Thank you Joe. Fifteen months more of common sense "accountability". Keep holding their feet to the fire. If they can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Spring Hill just discovered they spent 3 million dollars over and above their 18 million budget? Nolensville is next in line for a big budget surprise. We need a 24/7 town manager at full salary to watch the money. Voters don't know what is going on budget-wise because town leaders don't really know.

Great idea blogmaster. With as many stories going around, why not have the consultants give everyone an up to date and projected cost analysis. The people deserve it.

Rocky fork road is a waste of town money! First the rocky fork by pass does nothing for the town of nolensville. It directs traffic away from our businesses so I guess no tax dollars will be generated there! All the persons using the new road do not live in our town and only commute through, so for them it's a free road no cost no hassels! Should the town have used state grant money on this project? Of course, but Oh thats right the Mayor fired the city engineer because she knows better!Why such hurry to build this road when we need the traffic running through our business district addressed and corrected. Nolensville has become the town of no left turns. Traffic passes on the shoulder creating dangers to all of us and our familes. Oh yeah where is the police that were hired to stop these dangers? City hall on the internet? hanging out at Sonic or out fighting fires in Marshall County? Oh well the Mayors indiffernces to our needs just becomes more obvious!
