Clarksville City Council Special Session Recap, March 11th, 2013

 

Clarksville City Council - Ward 10Clarksville, TN – The Clarksville City Council met in a special session last evening (March 11th) at the direction of Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan. The purpose was to conduct the second (all ordinances require two votes for passage) vote on a spending ordinance 72-2012-13.

As a brief background, the ordinance would have increased an approved spending request of $190,000 for a new chiller (AC Unit) for Clarksville City Hall. The increase would have raised the total expense to over one million dollars. This increase was due to buying a more efficient chiller (cost: $384,000) and replacing lighting fixtures in eight buildings for more efficient units at a cost of over $610,000.  The initial vote of approval on this ordinance was held last Thursday (March 7th) and ended in a 6 – 6 tie that Mayor McMillan voted yes to provide passage of the ordinance. «Read the rest of this article»
