We apologize for all the dead links below. The City of Mt. Juliet recently removed from its web site ALL of the ordinances and resolutions passed by previous city commissions. Of course, they have no legal obligation that requires them to make them available on the web, but it is curious that they would take such a large step backwards. They have also stopped posting financial reports by the Finance Director/City Manager. All that’s left on the City website is a link to the City Charter. There is a notice up, soliciting bids to codify the cities ordinances. Will they be posted so the public can access them? Will the ordinances, resolutions, and minutes of city commission meetings be made available to citizens again? Stay tuned.

These links are collected here because Mayor Elam has a tendency to make stuff up (also known as “lying”) about the past. Its unfortunate, but you should always verify the official records before you take her word for something.
