A resolution encouraging the Metropolitan Department of Water and Sewerage Services and the Department of Public Works to give written notice to satellite cities of road cuts within their jurisdictions and to post an adequate bond to ensure road repairs are made.
WHEREAS, there are currently six satellite cities within the General Services District of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County that retained their status as incorporated cities when the Metropolitan Government was created in 1963; and
WHEREAS, several of the satellite cities provide for the planning, construction, and maintenance of the streets and roads within the boundaries of their respective city limits; and
WHEREAS, from time to time, it is necessary for the Metropolitan Government to cut or otherwise open a road or road right-of-way within a satellite city in order to access underground utilities, or for other government purposes; and
