The city accepted a bid for $27,440,488 by Jones Brothers Inc. of Mt. Juliet to connect the northern and eastern areas of Gallatin by extending Hatten Track Road to State Route 109. The project is expected to divert approximately 12 percent from Downtown Gallatin to the new road, according to a news release.
Water running into stormwater drain
The monthly rate for residential properties in the city varies between $3, $5 and $9 depending on the total square footage of the impervious surfaces they have like rooftops and driveways that do not allow water to absorb into the ground. Multifamily residences like duplexes and apartments are charged less at $2 per month. The new fee can only be used to deal with stormwater and flooding issues.
