Mayor Richard Carr presiding.

 

The Mayor stated that the purpose of the Special Meeting was to review and discuss the Toledo Area Regional Water Authority (TAWA) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) distributed to Council members this morning.  He stated that tomorrow morning there will be a special press conference to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) as to the Toledo Area Water Authority.  He explained that no agreement is being signed or approved at this time, just an agreement to move forward.

 

Presentations were given by the Service Director, who provided background on this issue; the Finance Director spoke about the projected water rates over the next eight years and possible need to adjust rates to maintain a minimum fund balance; the Law Director explained the process that will take place before a regional water authority can come into effect; and the Mayor gave some key points on this issue.  The Mayor then introduced Mr. Brian Dicken from the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce and Eric Rottistein, Mediator, who spoke on the matter and answered questions from Council members. 

 

The Mayor added that they will continue to meet with another potential provider in the event this proposal is turned down by any of the communities.  He stressed the importance of keeping our options open in case an agreement is not made with all of the surrounding communities.
