Board to vote on Farm Park rental policies, new fire truck


The Germantown Board of Mayor and Aldermen was scheduled to review rental policies for the city’s new Farm Park and authorize the purchase of a new fire engine for $747,853 Monday night during their regularly scheduled meeting.
The rental operation for the Farm Park will be market driven and compares with similar facilities throughout the country.
Guidelines limit the maximum number of guests allowed at a function (175), establish hourly rental rates for weekday meetings and outdoor picnics for small groups and flat rates for weekend rentals. All food and alcohol services must be done through selected caterers. the Farm Park will be closed to the public during private rental events.
The custom fire engine will be purchased from Ferrara Fire Apparatus and will be used as a front-line engine, allowing another older engine to be used in a reserve capacity.
Fire engines are typically used in a front-line capacity for 15 years and five years as a reserve.
Germantown residents are invited to participate in a Town Hall meeting to learn more about the connectivity and beautification plans for the Central Business District including Historic Old Germantown.
Residents will also have the opportunity to provide input on proposed plans to realign Germantown Road. The meeting will take place on Dec. 2, beginning at 6 p.m. at The Great Hall & Conference Center located at 1900 S. Germantown Road.
This meeting will provide an opportunity for residents to learn more about the plans and provide feedback regarding the project directly to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen.
Questions and feedback from the meeting will be further discussed by the BMA during their semi-annual retreat in January and as they deliberate the development of the 2017 fiscal year annual capital budget.
A casual meal will be provided beginning at 5:45 p.m.
To ensure the proper amount of food is on-hand, we ask you to reserve your spot by contacting Stacey Ewell at or (901) 751-7559. Additional information on the project is available at Germantown
