NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A vote by the Davidson County Election Commission Thursday night requires a judge to decide whether or not voters can weigh in on a proposal that changes Metro's charter.
The proposal was brought forth by the group 4GoodGovernment - the same group that just successfully put the Nashville Taxpayer Protection Act on a July ballot (NTPA).
The NTPA would limit how much the city's tax rate could go up each year. The amendment would revert property tax rates back to FY 2019-2020 thus making it easier to recall elected officials and make it harder to give away Metro property.
It also would revert any professional sports stadiums back to taxpayers if a team leaves town or does not play in its venue for 24 months.
It's unclear when the judge will make a decision on whether this goes on a ballot.
