Fuel hikes hit citzens, officials


Fuel costs.

Not only are they causing local residents concern about how to afford gasoline and diesel as they increase, they are also affecting city and county officials as they try to figure out how to pay for the hikes within their budgets.

The City of Lebanon has added 30 percent to its fuel budget for 2008-2009.

Lebanon Special School District is planning on an extra $25,000 in its budget and hoping that will be enough.

Wilson County Schools officials say they are in the same trouble. They won’t be running buses on the first or last days of school this year to try and keep their fuel budget under control.

“It will save $20,000,” said county Schools Director Mike Davis. The school buses use about 1,600 gallons of diesel fuel per day.

Music City Star to mute whistle in Mt. Juliet

Special to The Wilson Post

MT. JULIET - If you’ve been cursing early commuters to Nashville since the Music City Star commuter train began its route through Mt. Juliet because of the early morning train’s wake-up whistle, you’ll get some relief soon… well, eventually.

The train’s whistle, as it approaches road crossings in Mt. Juliet, has been subject to constant criticism. Residents have said they don’t like the noise, believe it is excessive and would prefer that the train pass through without blowing its whistle.

Mt. Juliet City Manager Randy Robertson said Monday that the quiet zone issues have all been “worked out,” and that the City’s insurance company has the liability issues that beleaguered the project for so long “fully in hand.”

“As long as we follow all procedures and do what we’re supposed to do, the insurance company will cover it as they should,” Robertson said.
