Items on the agenda for Tuesday's City Council meeting include a resolution to approve a board of commissioners for the newly formed Moccasin Bend Clean Water Authority and a resolution to authorize $10,000 to be put toward the creation of a television show focusing on the work of the Gang Task Force.
Funds for the television show, which will be produced at a discounted rate by WTCI, have already been budgeted, documents show. The program will be presented in a roundtable format, with members of "various mentoring agencies" discussing the impact that mentoring relationships can have on the lives of at-risk youth.
The 30-minute program, which will include a moderator and four panelists, will have a prime-time airing and repeat viewings. Total project value for the program is nearly $20,000.
The council will also vote to confirm nominations put forward by Mayor Ron Littlefield for the city's new wastewater authority. Five representatives from area associations will make up the board, with a staggered structure of their expected tenure.
Nominees are Phil Ball of the Chattanooga Manufacturers Association, who would serve a term of five years; Don Moon of the Homebuilders Association of Southeast Tennessee, who would serve a term of four years; Bruce Case of the Associated General Contractors of East Tennessee, who would serve a term of three years; Maria Noel of the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce, who would serve a term of two years; and Mark Blazek of the Chattanooga Association of Realtors, who would serve a term of one year.
