Our people. Serving our people.

Through a series of short video clips, City of Goodlettsville employees will give insight into their departments and talk about what they do each day to serve the community and residents of Goodlettsville. In total there are 14 videos. A new video will be featured each month from November 2017 through December 2018. The goal of the project is to give the Goodlettsville community the inside scoop of its municipal government. We are people here to serve ‘our people’.
