Volunteers with Fulton and South Fulton’s “Let’s Paint the Town” program are ready to begin the final summer of work. The community project began in May 2010 to revitalize the appearance of the Twin Cities to attract new businesses. Volunteers have met for two summers to restore buildings and plant landscaping.

Fulton resident Jeff Campbell has been involved with the project since it started. He says although progress revitalizing Fulton has been slow, the program has already seen some success.

Obion County Tennessee residents within 5 miles of South Fulton have a new subscription based fire service that helps ensure fire fighters respond to all fires. The change comes after the city faced scrutiny for not fighting fires at homes where the owner failed to pay the fee. City commissioners voted three to two Thursday night to approve the ordinance.

South Fulton Tennessee is working on a solution to a controversial rural subscription fire policy that has drawn negative attention to the city in the past. Last week, the city commission passed the first reading of an ordinance that would allow the fire department to respond to rural fire calls. City Manager Debra Craig says that's whether or not the homeowners have paid a fire subscription fee.
