 Clarksville City - Ward 5Clarksville, Tennessee I hope everyone enjoys the holidays. I wanted to change things up a bit with the newsletter structure. Hope this makes it easier to read and not too time consuming.

The mayor announced the appointments of the new committees. These assignments will run until June 2022. I am currently working on three committees; Gas, Water, Streets, Garage, Transportation, Neighborhood and Community Development (formerly Housing and Community Development).

I look forward to my time on these committees and hope to learn more about the inner workings of the city to give you guys better information.

What do you think?

One of the problems facing Clarksville is not only the traffic condition but the speed as well. A possible solution to some of the areas mentioned are speed bumps.

I want to hear from you guys. What do you think about speed bumps in certain areas? Do you think it will work? Waste of money? What areas do you think they need?

Please note that I currently do not advocate for speed bumps. It’s something that has been brought up and I wanted to see what the community thinks about it. At the moment, there are no plans that I am aware of, but the option is being explored.

Hurricane relief efforts

I would like to thank everyone who has donated to relief efforts in Dixon County. We received a lot of donations and were able to give: dog and cat food, water, snacks, blankets, hygiene items (baby wipes, hairbrushes, razors, toothpaste, toothbrushes), stuffed animals, reading books, coloring books and washing clothes. Wipes, work gloves and cleaning supplies!

Tornado Relief Efforts

future storms

We were under severe weather warning on Friday night, December 31, and today, January 1. According to some meteorologists, this storm system has the potential to cause another tornado to erupt across 12 states. The targeted areas are the same as those affected by the last outbreak on December 10th.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has classified our area under Big Severe, and 10% of hurricane risk is under this storm system. I wanted to share the following from NWS in case it helps someone. Be alert and safe everyone.
