Small town with big charm. We moved here a couple years ago and my family and I love it here! Super close to downtown Nashville and other amenities, but yet you have that great country feel.

Ridgetop's mayor/aldermanic system of government is very backward insofar as any acceptance of new blood into its government. The current mayor has been mayor before and was responsible for a former employee winning a huge settlement for wrongful termination that the city taxes had to pay, yet was re-elected just a few years later! As far as I can tell, almost all of the aldermen are long-term, long-time officials and are consistently re-elected or even run unopposed - nobody will vote for someone they "don't know" or have known personally for years.
Although we have "neighborhood watch" signs all over the roads in my neighborhood, I've never been invited to any meetings, nor do I know of an active "group". Ours is a very "bedroom" neighborhood and I do not know many of my neighbors very well. That being said, any time I observe something fishy going on, I call my local police force and they will be out there within five minutes. We have a neighbor with advanced parkinson's disease who used to like to walk despite his disability who was well known for falling. Anyone who saw him on the ground would routinely call the volunteer fire department to come and pick him up.
