I’m just pleased to contribute to the growth and development of this great city.”

Overton is the Vice President of Loss Mitigation of Volunteer State Bank in Gallatin. He has served as a city councilman in Gallatin since 2006. The Sumner County Council of Governments was formed in 1994 for the purpose of fostering a spirit of cooperation among the city and county governments.

Gallatin Awarded for Achievements in Innovation

Honors Received in Water Treatment, Cost Saving, and Business Communication

Gallatin – The City of Gallatin received three awards for innovation in government programs by the Greater Nashville Regional Council (GNRC) during their 49th Annual Awards Banquet. Gallatin received more awards than any other single city or county in Middle Tennessee.

The recognition comes on the heels of Gallatin’s State of the City Address, where Gallatin’s Mayor Paige Brown touted the city’s achievements and highlighted growth milestones in the past year (watch the video).

“It’s a great honor to be recognized by the GNRC among our peers in government,” said Brown. “It really reinforces our belief that our City Council, partner agencies, and city departments are on the right track for improving Gallatin for our citizens.”

Gallatin was given top honors for cost-saving techniques for its Special Census. The certified increase in population for Gallatin resulted in $516,000 additional annual funding to the city and a 4,691% return on investment.

Gallatin’s Public Utilities Department was honored for completing a $4.65 million upgrade to its water treatment plant. The improvements changed the process by which water is disinfected and no longer requires hazardous chemicals to be stored on-site.

Gallatin’s Economic Development Agency (EDA) was awarded for their “Gallatin Gets It” campaign. The agency’s “2015 Growth Report” showcased important information about Gallatin; their website workingallatin.com provides an avenue for industry to find area information and post available jobs; a bi-monthly morning radio show featured local industry; and an online marketing campaign resulted in increased visitors to EDA’s online resources.

Sumner County was also honored for two initiatives. They were recognized for their Library Improvement Program and Sumner County Tourism’s “Sumner County Dining Guide.”

Also at the banquet, Mayor Brown was sworn in as the new Regional Council Treasurer for the Greater Nashville Regional Council. The GNRC is a council of governments that services as an economic development district and planning agency for 13 counties and 52 cities across Middle Tennessee. Their mission is to assist local communities and state agencies in the development of plans and programs that guide effective growth and ensure the continued long-term livability of the region.
