Mayor Purcell hosts public outreach to immigrant community

"Mayor Bill Purcell will hold the first International Mayor's Night Out meeting 6 p.m. Thursday, at Glencliff High School, 160 Antioch Pike. Mayor Purcell and representatives from various Metro departments will meet directly with residents from Nashville's immigrant community about issues or concerns that affect their lives. The Mayor's Office of Neighborhoods is working with the Tennessee Foreign Language Institute to provide translators for residents who speak limited English. Also, residents will have access to translated brochures and pamphlets regarding various Metro services. Upon arrival, people who wish to speak with Mayor Purcell will be asked to provide their name, address and a brief description of their issue or concern. Requests to speak with Mayor Purcell will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis."
