Here are the top three stories in Chattanooga today:
- A proposed rule would allow the Chattanooga City Council to place a moratorium on short-term vacation rental applications. If the proposal passes, the moratorium would be in place until January 2023 in order to give the city council time to make new regulations based on residents’ concerns about short-term vacation rentals.

- The Chattanooga Hamilton County Retired Teachers Association will be awarding multiple scholarships in June. A total of $12,000 in scholarship funds will be available. The scholarships will be awarded to qualified candidates who want to become teachers. (The Chattanoogans)

From our sponsor:
Where should you invest as a Chattanooga resident with a $149,000 nest egg? Thanks to a change in the legal code, there’s a new investment Chattanooga residents need to know about. In fact, Bloomberg asked experts where they’d invest $100,000 right now and many of them chose it.
This may surprise you, but it’s fine art.
Growing your nest egg with art isn’t new. Wealthy families like the Rockefellers have done it for centuries.
- Low correlation to stocks according to Citi
- Contemporary art historically returns 23.2% when inflation is >3%
- Contemporary art prices outpaced the S&P 500 by 164% (1995-2021)
Translation: Art could be one of the best investments for uncertain times.
Luckily for you, we found Masterworks. This revolutionary platform lets you invest in art by Warhol, Monet, Picasso without spending millions.
The best part? Anyone from your area can skip their waitlist*.
