The grand opening of Beretta USA has again focused national and international attention on Gallatin. The economic impact is expected to extend beyond the 300 hired at the facility that officially opened on April 15, 2016.
The city recently released research as part of its branding campaign that shows how visitors and residents perceive Gallatin. Overall, residents are proud of Gallatin and visitors love our smalltown feel. The research provides valuable tools for economic development and marketing efforts by the city and the Chamber of Commerce. The research will help lead to a branding look for the city, as well as promote ourselves to the businesses we want to attract.

Gallatin City Update

 

What a wonderful Springtime in Gallatin! It’s even better since we have so much to celebrate. In addition to the recent grand opening of Beretta in Gallatin, many of our companies are looking for employees. Remember to check out workingallatin.com if you’re in the market for a new job.

I want you to know that our city is working hard on many fronts. In addition to the constant effort to attract jobs, retail, and restaurants, there are many infrastructure projects in motion. This month, railroad crossings are being rebuilt at West Eastland and Red River, and the one on Hartsville Pike is being removed. Look forward to smoother crossings! Additionally, the GreenLea extension from SR 386 to Long Hollow Pike is under construction, projected to be completed in December of 2017. SR 109 from Airport Road to the new bridge is expected to bid this month, with construction hopefully beginning this year. Perhaps the best news is that the state has SR 109 on the Wilson County side of the bridge in the budget for construction in 2017. Other smaller utility and road projects will be happening throughout the city.

On a more personal note, I hope you enjoy this beautiful time of year and take advantage of all that is happening in Gallatin. Our newsletter, gallatinonthemove.com and gallatintn.org are all great resources for staying engaged. As always, please contact us with any concerns or suggestions that you may have.

Brush Removal Update

Please be patient as brush crews work to catch up on the influx of materials being collected. This time of year brush pick up time takes 4-6 weeks because of the increase in seasonal yard work and storms. Brush crews are working diligently and working overtime to catch up.

Brush collection crews are working to meet the seasonal increase in demand.

Please remember the following guidelines:

  • Brush including limbs/logs must be no longer than 15′
  • Brush must be placed within 2′ of the edge of the roadway/sidewalk/curb, with limbs/logs facing the same direction.
  • Brush should be free of any other debris (i.e. paper, furniture, treated or painted wood).
  • Place brush away from driveways or intersections in a manner that does not reduce visibility.
  • Brush should not be placed on sidewalk or roadway travel paths.
  • Leaves, lawn clippings, mulch, and small branches should be put in brown recyclable bags from a local retail/hardware store and placed at the curb/street.
