Eagleville presented with Tennessee Municipal League Award

The City of Eagleville was presented with Tennessee Municipal League’s “Small City Progress” award at their 76th Annual Conference, held on June 9th, 2015 at the Nashville Convention Center. The City of Eagleville recently installed sewer improvements, redeveloped their downtown, and hired new personnel.  In addition, the local school was also expanded to accommodate additional students.  The 3.5 million dollar sewer system lifted a halt on development, and new commercial businesses have been able to open, providing both services to the residents and tax revenue for the city.  Eagleville School, Rutherford County’s only K-12 school, was also able to expand as a result of the addition of sewer service.  This much needed expansion added nine classrooms, more room for educational programs and offices, as well as an expanded cafeteria.  Andrew Ellard, the city’s first full time city manager, was also hired to oversee daily government and plan for future needs.  The first full-time firefighter and additional police were also added to the staff.


TML is an organization that assists communities throughout the state with various needs.  They also work with the Tennessee General Assembly to craft and keep legislation that helps city governments.  Awards are given to cities that have been able to progress and make exceptional moves to enhance the quality of life for their citizens.  GNRC prides itself on working together with TML to help cities achieve these goals.
