U.S. Army Corps of EngineersNashville, TN – The Mississippi River Commission recently navigated the Tennessee River and Cumberland River to gain a fresh perspective for the development of plans to improve the condition of the Mississippi River Basin, foster navigation, promote commerce, and reduce flood risk.

The commission met with stakeholders while inspecting the waterways and visited U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District and Tennessee Valley Authority projects.

The Motor Vessel Mississippi made a brief stop at McGregor Park in Clarksville, Tenn., Aug. 11, 2015, during a recent stop along the Cumberland River. The vessel is the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ largest diesel towboat and flagship to the Mississippi River Commission, which is inspecting Corps of Engineers projects along the Cumberland River as part of the commission’s annual low water inspection trip.

Clarksville, TN – The City of Clarksville has been advised by attorneys “not to discuss issues that might be the subject of negotiations between the City and TMS.”  This according to mayor’s spokeswoman Jennifer Rawls, when asked about the status of Liberty Park.

In exclusive reports from WJZM and Clarksville Online, TMS Contracting has been embroiled in a legal battle with a former sub-contractor, Rust of Kentucky, over wrongful termination.  A bankruptcy judge ruled on February 7th  in favor of Rust, awarding the Kentucky company 4.8 million dollars in damages.  TMS and it’s insurance carrier Zurich, are appealing that ruling.

Sources indicate that Thom Spigner is finished with the project, and has sold all of his equipment, including personal items, to pay legal bills, and keep from filing bankruptcy. «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan has received notification that the Army Corps of Engineers has approved the lease agreement between the City of Clarksville and Cumberland River, LLC. The lease was approved by the city council at a special called session earlier this week.

“Corps approval is a critical step in moving forward with development”, explained Mayor McMillan. “Once the City Council approved the agreement on Tuesday night, we immediately moved forward to sign and forward it to the Corps for review. To receive approval within 48 hours is a direct result of our hard work and commitment to completing this project.”

There was much debate at Tuesday’s called session of the city council over the lease.  Some council members objected to having to vote so soon after receiving the final lease agreement from city hall. Councilwoman Kaye Jones and councilman Bill Summers were the most vocal. «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville will have a marina operator.  Finally! (keeping fingers crossed)

The Clarksville City Council approved two lease agreements this week to FINALLY get a marina operator to get the marina up and running by spring 2012.  The agreement is between the city of Clarksville, and Campbell Telico Marina LLC, to operate a marina and restaurant at the former fairgrounds property.  Once completed, it will be one of the finest facilities anywhere.  The vote didn’t come without the typical political “posturing”.

Several city councilmen complained about the timing of the special called session, after only receiving the final lease agreement the night before they were to vote on it.  «Read the rest of this article»
