County Mayor and Sheriff to Dig into the Issues at Public Affairs Roundtable

public affairs roundtable

Williamson County mayor Rogers Anderson is everywhere lately.

The four-term mayor gave his annual State of the County address on Tuesday morning to general applause and high praise. He highlighted quality-of-life topics, such as schools, employment, economic growth and commercial development. And of course traffic, the downside to all this upside, according to Anderson.

Next week, he will dig deeper into the topics he discussed in his address at the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce’s monthly Public Affairs Roundtable.

From 7:15 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. at the Williamson County Administrative Complex auditorium, Anderson is scheduled to expound on capital improvement projects and the recent property tax increase.

Last week the county commission passed a property tax increase husbanded to a $515 million budget. Needless to say, it has met with criticism from certain corners and county commissioners.

The mayor will not be alone, however.

In light of recent shootings that made national headlines, Sheriff Jeff Long will join Anderson, to talk about efforts to enhance safety in the community. Among other efforts, the county recently hired a new 9-1-1 emergency director, and continues to make strides implementing a county-wide dispatch system.
