NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — With the city projecting a revenue loss of almost a half a billion dollars by June of next year, the Mayor says he has no choice but to propose a 32% property tax hike to deal with what he calls “the greatest financial challenge the city has seen in a lifetime.” Mayor Cooper is our guest on Inside Politics. We really appreciate him finding time to join us. We’ll also ask him about the latest in Nashville’s ongoing war with the virus, including extending his Safer at Home order until at least May 8, and ordering everyone to wear a face mask while out in public. We have a quite a lot to discuss. Tune in!
