A Message from the County Mayor
The year 2014 promises exciting possibilities for our community as we continue to move forward. Unemployment is significantly lower than state and national averages. In fact, our rate in Robertson County was 5.7 % in December compared with 7% nationally and 8.1% in Tennessee.
Many of our industries are rapidly expanding and early in 2014 Robertson County will take its place on the Metropolitan Planning Organization. The MPO directs highway construction funds in the region and our county’s new membership is a historic step forward.

Extreme Makeover … Library Edition
Discussion about the renovation of the county/city-owned Gorham-MacBane Public Library has gone on for many years. But there is great news on the horizon.
“Robertson County’s $1 million contribution will be made on or before February 28,” Mayor Howard Bradley said. “The expectation is that the city of Springfield’s matching $1 million will follow shortly thereafter.”
Bradley expects a groundbreaking ceremony in early spring.
“It is our sincere hope and expectation that as the community sees the project come to fruition that individuals and groups will contribute to make this dream a reality. No contribution is too small. Let’s make this happen in 2014.”
