Two days ago President Clint Cointment called out “certain council members” for “intentional sabotage (and) manipulating the process in favor” of Bernhard Capital Partners as the governing authority considers a mega-million dollar proposal for east bank sanitary sewer. Yesterday the council chairwoman, District 8 representative Teri Casso amended the body’s next meeting agenda (tonight) to add:
TO RETAIN THE FIRM OF ERNST & YOUNG
TO ANALYZE AND COMPARE SEWER PLANS
WHEREAS, Ascension Sewer, LLC has submitted a sewer plan to the Ascension Parish Governing Authority for wastewater operation on the East Bank of Ascension Parish, and
WHEREAS, the Parish Administration has developed an alternative.
WHEREAS, the Governing Authority desires a financial analysis of the alternative sewer plan to assist in its review of the plan.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the firm of Ernst & Young be retained to analyze the alternative sewer plan developed by the Parish Administration and to compare such plan with the plan submitted by Ascension Sewer, LLC.
