I am staring down the April 30th deadline for first-time home-buyers to be under contract in order to get the $8000 tax credit from the Feds, and suddenly I’m swamped with buyers. So with apologies for such a quick post here, I did want to share some of the recent information sent by the city. Next week I’m introducing another person of our community on the “We are LaVergne” … look forward to hearing about how this person has made a difference in the lives of many young adults.
From the city:

What Would You Do With $11.8 Million?
After two budget workshops by the La Vergne Board of Mayor and Aldermen, Mayor Ronnie Erwin is happy to report the the budget is finalized.
“Right now, we’re $31,000 to the good,” he announced Thursday. “And that’s with the insurance going up, a three percent raise for employees and the non-profit donations.”
The budget workshops are completed. The completed budget, set at $11,834,000, will be submitted to the Board for their approval in May and June. It takes two votes by the Board to pass a budget. A workshop will be held at the June 1 meeting.
Once approved, the budget will take effect July 1, 2010. For more information, contact Mayor Erwin at 394-2821.
Meanwhile, if you’re thinking about making the deadline to buy a home, don’t forget about my listings… look at the videos on the right hand side to see 281 Bill Stewart Blvd. ($129,900) and 5137 Morningwood Dr. in Cane Ridge ($246,900). Also, a friend of mine has 1714 Jimmy Cove ($149,900) that is perfect with over 2000 square feet and in beautiful condition!
