Town of Nolensville
Board of Mayor and Aldermen Special Meeting
Date: July 8, 2010, Time 12:00 noon
Nolensville Recreation Center

 

Mayor Beth Lothers opened the meeting at 12:05 p.m.  Members present were Mayor Lothers, Aldermen Jimmy Alexander, Tommy Dugger, Larry Felts, and Brian Snyder.  Staff present was Town Planner Henry Laird and Town Engineer Don Swartz.  Counsel Bob Notestine and Town Recorder Cindy Lancaster were absent.  There were two citizens present.

 

Mayor Lothers led the Prayer and Pledge.

Mayor Lothers noted that this Special Meeting was called due to the consideration of reviewing the recent contract that was before the Regular Meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen on July 1st, in Resolution 10-10.  She stated that the property owner felt that in good faith by reducing the price by $120,000, that was a firm price.

Mayor Lothers said that it was her understanding the boundary survey would cost approximately $1,200, the Environmental Survey could be done in house, and the Engineering Firm could perform the Topographic.  Engineer Swartz clarified that the Engineering firm would need a digital copy of the Topographical Survey.  He also said that he felt it was not his area of expertise, although the Level One Environmental Study had been 70-80% completed prior to July 1st, in due diligence on the Town’s part.  He added that any environmental and land use limitations should be revealed when Counsel Notestine performs the title search for closing. 

 Mayor Lothers said that Counsel Notestine has highlighted the items that the seller agreed to amend and the Board has a copy of those changes.  Alderman Alexander noted that the only change in the contract from the previous Board meeting is that the seller does not want to incur the cost of the Environmental Study and Surveys.  He added that these would be performed at the Town’s cost. 

Alderman Snyder made a motion to accept the amended contract as highlighted and before the Board, Alderman Alexander seconded. 

 Alderman Dugger asked if there was a timeline for construction, noting that the sewer cost was contingent on the Dollar General construction.  Mayor Lothers said that the ball would keep rolling once the contract is signed.  American Constructors will move forward on the project. 

The vote was taken and passed unanimously.

The meeting adjourned at 12:15 p.m.
