Cleveland, TN | Bradley County, TN
The Cleveland City Council met on Monday covering several items of business. Mayor Kevin Brooks thanked the pastor of First Baptist for their combined 10,000 labor hours of service across the city in various projects at schools, animal shelters, and many other places. Aldo discussed were results of the last census, placing the city population at 47,356 people. Council members were concerned that the census was undercounted due to events in 2020. City Manager Joe Fivas said a recount would cost money. Councilman Estes mentioned grants that may be available for cities with population of 50,000 or more, so in a few years it may be worth a recount.
