GALLATIN RISK MANAGER AWARDED FOR EXCELLENCE
The City of Gallatin Risk Manager JamiAnn Hannah received an Excellence in Risk Management Award. The Tennessee Municipal League Risk Management Pool, more commonly known as The Pool, is the state’s leader in providing insurance and risk management services for municipalities and public entities.
Gallatin’s new fire station on Nichols Lane will be fully staffed when it opens next year thanks to a $1.5 million federal grant that will allow the city to hire 15 new firefighters. The funding will be used to pay 75 percent of the salary and benefits costs for the new firefighters during the first two years of the grant followed by 35 percent in the third and final year.
City leaders know that we must plan for growth in order to manage traffic congestion, keep the cost of living affordable, and preserve Gallatin’s unique and historic character. As a first step, please take a few moments to tell us what is important to you. GallatinTN.Gov/Survey
