Some sewer bills may be foul

Clarksville sewer bills might contain pricey surprises for some residents



Town Council President Bob Polston asked Montgomery if the town is protected from increases in costs because of change orders on the project. Montgomery assured Polston that it’s something the town will be watching closely. 

“I guarantee you that they won’t get away with anything,” Montgomery said. 

HDR, the engineering firm that performed the preliminary design work, was awarded a contract not to exceed $1.069 million for engineering, inspection and project management for the wastewater treatment plant.  

During the public-comment portion of the meeting, Clarksville resident Tom DeArk asked the council to identify ways to reduce the amount of the bond issuance for the project before it proceeds, and named the town’s low sewer and stormwater bills as advantages Clarksville has over other area municipalities.
