NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — It has been a somewhat disturbing last few months at the Metro Courthouse. A potential state takeover of Nashville’s Metro government finances has been threatened unless the city gets its house in order. This past week the Metro Council took a step towards addressing a major part of that situation by approving, without a no vote, a multi-year program to raise the city’s water sewer rates. But it appears much more still needs to be done. Our guests on INSIDE POLITICS this week are two of major players in the city council trying to deal with this crisis. They are Councilmember at Large Bob Mendes, who heads the Council’s Budget & Finance Committee and At Large member Steve Glover who is a former district member and he served previously on the Metro School Board.
