CHICK-FIL-A CONDUCTING JOB INTERVIEWS SATURDAY AT HOME2 SUITES
Job interviews for the new Chick-fil-A currently under construction at One Bellevue Place will be held Saturday. Interviews will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Home2 Suites, 7616 Highway 70 South in One Bellevue Place. Several Full-time and part-time positions are available for the back-of-house team.
Prospective team members will register in the Home2 Suites lobby and will be placed on list based on their arrival time. All applicants will be asked to wait outside or in their vehicle until they receive a text message with further instructions from restaurant officials. Applicants will be interviewed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Applicants must be at least 16 years of age and wear proper face protection during the interview. Chick-fil-A requests that all applicants bring their government-issued identification and Social Security card should they be requested.
CHASE BANK BRANCH COMING TO BELLEVUE
The nation’s largest retail bank soon will open a branch on one of Bellevue’s longest-standing vacant commercial sites.
According to District 22 Council Member Gloria Hausser, New York-based Chase will expand its Nashville presence at 7655 Highway 70 South. That’s the site of the former Jack in the Box restaurant that has been closed for nearly a decade.
Rezoning requests have been made to the Planning Commission and a public meeting to review the request is slated for June 11 at 6:30 p.m. at 7335 Old Charlotte Pike. A target date for opening has yet to be announced but landscaping and traffic improvements are expected to be made to the property entrance. There is no word as to whether Chase will renovate the existing structure or build a new one.
Chase opened its first Nashville location in Berry Hill last year and plans to open several more in the next year. The bank has previously announced its intention to open downtown and in Donelson and Green Hills.
COUNCIL BUDGET HEARING SLATED FOR JUNE 2
Nashville’s difficult financial condition was distressed by the March 2 tornado and exasperated by the COVID-19 shutdown. In a recent newsletter, District 22 Council Member Gloria Hausser, who represents Bellevue, encouraged residents to stay engaged with the ongoing budgetary issues.
“We are looking for additional revenue and reviewing what could be cut or delayed without impacting public safety,” Hausser stated in the newsletter. “When the State Comptroller came to the Council chambers last year and presented us with the cold hard facts of our shortfall it was a sobering moment.” She says the impacts of the past few months, “made that hole a crater.”
Mayor John Cooper presented his recommended budget to the Council earlier this month and residents can read the document in its entirety at Nashville.gov.
Hausser emphasized that this is only a recommendation and not the final budget. “The Council Budget Committee has been conducting meetings with the departments in which they have presented their requests, needs and efforts to cut expenses,” she said. “At the moment there are multiple alternate budgets the Council will be presenting.”
Residents may watch all Council budget hearings on the Metro Nashville YouTube channel.
