NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
The Metro Nashville government has reached a tentative new agreement with five satellite cities, giving the communities more flexibility.
The new deal would allow the satellite cities to establish municipal courts, build parks and conduct building-related inspections, among other things.
If approved by the Metro Council and community leaders in the smaller cities, the initial agreement would last four years. If no objections develop, the plan would be extended four additional years.
According to a memo by Metro Legal Director Saul Solomon, the goal of the agreement was to preserve the essence of the Metro charter and resolve legal disputes about duties and responsibilities.
In 2011, Nashville sued Forest Hills to prevent the city from creating its own municipal court.
The deal is also expected to stop a vote on a pending bill in the state legislature. A proposal sponsored by State Rep. David Alexander and State Sen. Jim Tracy would give the satellite cities additional freedoms.
In a letter earlier this month, Mayor Karl Dean said the bill would "gut" Metro government.
Solomon said the new agreement preserves a "spirit of unity."
On Saturday, April 6, Metro will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a free party at Public Square Park.
