Agenda Analysis

Analysis

 

This ordinance approves an agreement between Metro Water Services (MWS) and Piedmont Natural Gas Company (Piedmont) for shared use of an Access Drive off Franklin Pike (“Access Drive”). Piedmont will maintain a gas regulator station near the Access Drive and has requested Metro allow Piedmont to use the Access Drive to monitor and maintain the gas regulator station. In exchange for the shared use of the Access Drive, Piedmont agrees to widen the Access Drive to two lanes in each direction and maintain it (with 50% reimbursement from MWS) to account for wear and tear. MWS may cancel the agreement if Piedmont fails to cure a breach of this agreement within 30 days of written notice to Piedmont.

 

Fiscal Note: Upon completion of the Access Drive widening, Metro Water and Sewerage Services Department (MWS) will reimburse Piedmont fifty percent (50%) of the future expenses incurred in connection with maintaining and repairing the Access Drive. Reimbursement requests for expenses exceeding $5,000 will require written approval from MWS.
