METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE-DAVIDSON COUNTY

Donelson-Hermitage is a part of Metropolitan Government of Nashville-Davidson County (Metro). However, Donelson (Nashville zip code 37214) is part of the Urban Services District, with Hermitage (37076) being part of the General Services District. When the Metro government was formed in 1963, the government was split into two service districts—the “urban services district” and the “general services district.” The urban services district encompasses the 1963 boundaries of the former City of Nashville, approximately 72 square miles, and the general services district includes the remainder of Davidson County.

Nashville is governed by a mayor, vice-mayor, and 40-member Metropolitan Council. There are five council members who are elected at large and 35 council members that represent individual districts. The Metro Council has regular meetings that are presided over by the vice-mayor, who is currently Jim Shulman. The Metro Council meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 6:00 pm, according to the Metropolitan Charter. Donelson and Hermitage encompass Council Districts 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15.
