County budget to be highlighted at July Chamber luncheon


Be among the first to find out how Williamson County is doing when County Mayor Rogers Anderson presents his annual State of the County address on Tuesday, July 15, at the monthly Williamson Chamber luncheon, which begins at 11:30 a.m. at the Franklin Marriott Cool Springs, 700 Cool Springs Blvd.

With a 2014-15 budget of nearly $441 million, the county will work to support growth in the school population, infrastructure upgrades and other needs.  As in the past, the majority of funds have been committed to support the public school system.

In his address, Anderson will explain how and why county funds have been allocated for the coming fiscal year.  As county mayor, he leads the local government and is in charge of fiscal management and other executive functions.

This year Anderson ran unopposed for the second time and will begin his fourth term this fall.  He has served as chief executive officer of Williamson County since 2002 – a post now known as the county mayor.  Anderson also was a county commissioner from 1986 to 2002, serving both as chairman and vice-chairman.  He retired from the insurance industry when he took the county’s top government office.

The July luncheon is being presented by Saint Thomas Health.  The cost is $35 for members and $40 for non-members, who may register as guests.  Sign up online at or by calling 615-771-1912.  A $5 late fee is added after noon on Friday, July 11.  Contact [email protected] for more information.
