Vice-Mayor Tommy Dugger opened the meeting at 7:11 p.m. Members present were Aldermen Jimmy Alexander, Joe Curtsinger, and Larry Felts. Mayor Knapper entered the meeting at 7:17. Counsel Robert Notestine, Town Planner Henry Laird, Town Engineer Rich Woodroof and Recorder Cindy Lancaster were present with 7 citizens.
Alderman Felts led the prayer and pledge.
Vice-Mayor Dugger introduced Resolution 05-10, a resolution approving and authorizing execution of an amended Interlocal Agreement between the City of Brentwood and the Town of Nolensville. Vice Mayor Dugger noted that the agenda reflected ordinance 05-10. Recorder Lancaster stated that this should read resolution, not an ordinance. He then turned the floor over to Counsel Notestine to describe this resolution. Counsel noted that it was his understanding that the City of Brentwood passed this resolution last night at their meeting.
Alderman Alexander made a motion to accept the resolution, Alderman Curtsinger seconded. Town Engineer Woodroof asked counsel how this resolution would be enforced. Counsel Notestine noted that when the town receives a site plan for this property, a copy will be forwarded to Brentwood. Mr. Woodroof showed concern about the buffer and accurate distances. Although he further noted he was getting a head when realizing that this resolution deals with the triangle in the southeast corner.
Vice-Mayor Dugger noted that there is an attachment that sets out the boundaries of this amendment. Mayor Knapper then entered the meeting at 7:17. Vice-Mayor Dugger then turned the meeting over to Mayor Knapper.
Counsel Notestine noted that Mayor Knapper had concern that a map was not attached. He stated that there is not a new map, although this agreement amends the original map.
Alderman Dugger asked for clarification in regards to a structure being fully in the triangle versus touching and/or crossing the line and/or buffer. Counsel stated that the document states, “must be revenue derived from the site”.
Alderman Dugger asked if the Engineer and everyone was satisfied and comfortable with the description and map of the property. Engineer Woodroof and various yes’s were echoed.
Alderman Curtsinger asked when would local sales tax be paid. Counsel Notestine stated that when a business starts it will begin paying and this will be paid annually.
Mayor Knapper stated that the board felt this would be a win-win situation and any percentage of the local sales tax would be better than no sales tax.
Alderman Dugger again asked for clarification in regards to the first sales tax received. Is the twelve years for an individual parcel or the “triangle” as a whole? Counsel stated it is for the triangle as a whole.
Mayor Knapper asked for public comment.
There was no public comment other than a shout of approval from an individual in the crowd.
The vote was then taken with the board unanimously approving resolution #05-10.
Mayor Knapper noted that due to circumstances today, he would like to add resolution 05-11 under “other” on the agenda. The board was in agreement to do this. Counsel Notestine noted that the court case in regards to annexation was held today. An agreement was reached which is outline in resolution #05-11. He further stated that it was agreed that this would not be discussed and reargued in the media. He stated that it was agreed that Mayor Knapper would be making a statement to the media.
Alderman Felts made a motion to approve this resolution, Alderman Dugger seconded. Alderman Curtsinger asked if there is a time frame that the annexation will be complete. Counsel stated that it will be drawn up and filed with the court. The court normally holds this type of document seven to ten days. After this period the annexation is complete.
Mayor Knapper asked for public comment. Again, there was no public comment other than a shout of approval from an individual in the crowd
Mayor Knapper adjourned the meeting at 7:32 p.m.
Respectfully submitted, Approved,
Cindy Lancaster Charles F. Knapper
