[ARCHIVED] Request for Consistency for Businesses within the City of Goodlettsville

Businesses that operate within the corporate limits of the City of Goodlettsville have recently experienced frustration and confusion surrounding the re-opening phases that have been laid out by the Governor and the Metro Health Department. The Davidson County portion of the city is required to follow the Davidson County Health Department’s orders, outlined in the Roadmap for Reopening Nashville, while businesses in the Sumner County portion of the city are required to follow those of the State of Tennessee, outlined in the TN Pledge.

Last night Mayor Duncan signed the attached letter, drafted by the Goodlettsville Economic Support and Recovery Task Force (ESRTF) and City leaders, to be sent to Mayor Cooper’s office and the Metro Health Department. The intent of this letter is to request consistency for the businesses within the City of Goodlettsville as it pertains to the re-opening of our economy, since the plans do not currently coincide. 

“When our businesses suffer, the entire community suffers. As City leaders, we hope that our plea will help shed light on our unique situation here in Goodlettsville,” said Julie High, Assistant City Manager and ESRTF Chair. 

Mary Laine Hucks, Director of Economic Development added, “We are hurting for our business community. These people are our friends. We hope with this request we can truly make a difference and affect positive change in the Goodlettsville community.”

In the meantime, the City of Goodlettsville stands ready to assist any business through this time of re-opening to customers. Anyone with questions may call 615-851-2200.
