WTVF-NASHVILLE — Nashville’s Metro Council begins its budget season in the next few weeks.

Last year with the pandemic, the aftermath of a deadly tornado, social justice concerns that led to protests and a riot downtown, and a 34% property tax increase, things were quite tumultuous.
What will this spring bring, as the Council seeks to approve a new city budget and property tax rate by the end of June?

One person who will be playing a leadership role in all that is 2nd District Councilmember Kyonzte Toombs.

She is the chair of the Council’s influential Budget and Finance Committee.
