To the Clarksville City Council: “You have the cart before the horse!”


clr-clrksvl-city-council-logoToday’s special call city council meeting is poised to consider a resolution approving a lease with a private entity and the city for development and operation of a city asset.

Some questions for the council before they vote on this measure, if you please.

1.) What are the terms of this lease agreement?

2.) How long will Mr. Batts be required to actually operate the marina?

5. Where is the public referendum required by the city charter when the city enters into an enterprise where the city’s credit has been utilized? «Read the rest of this article»

City Council set to okay lease for marina


clr-clrksvl-city-council-logoThe Clarksville City Council will meet in special session December 23 at 5 p.m. at City Council Chambers, 108 Public Square, in downtown Clarksville, to hear the following agenda, which includes authorizing a lease with Greg Batts for controversial marina development.

According the USACOE (United States Army Corps of Engineers), the permit process for the Clarksville Marina Fairgrounds Redevelopment Project will require receipt of a complete application; then an application review will be conducted, a public notice will be issued and public comment period would be declared where public questions, objections and concerns will be studied. Following the resolution of the public comment and issues, an environmental assessment will have to be conducted and any issues and concerns resulting from that analysis would have to be resolved. The USACOE would then consider issuing a permit. (Turner McCullough/US Army of Corps of Engineers awaiting TEPPCO permit application/Clarksville Online 12.22.08) «Read the rest of this article»
