This resolution approves an agreement between the Metropolitan Government, the City of Belle Meade, the City of Brentwood, the City of Goodlettsville, the City of La Vergne, the City of Millersville, the City of Ridgetop, and the White House Utility District for the selection of a rate consultant to develop an initial utility price for future sewage treatment contracts.

 

The Metropolitan Government previously approved individual agreements and individual amendments with the above entities for sewage treatments on August 5, 2014, pursuant to RS2014-1180. Each individual term ended on October 1, 2024. The existing agreements allow for the selection of a rate consultant no later than October 1, 2018, to develop an initial utility price for the calendar year beginning October 1, 2019.

 

The contract under consideration would allow the Metropolitan Government and the above entities to select a new rate consultant no later than December 1, 2023, to develop the initial utility price for the calendar year beginning on October 1, 2024. The parties would then develop long-term agreements to safely accept and treat sewage flows from all parties involved. The remaining terms of the individual agreements and individual amendments would remain in full force and effect.
