Mr. Robert H. Morriss,
Asst. Chief of Construction
301 City Hall
Atlanta, Ga. 30303
Dear Mr. Morriss:
We have delayed answering your letter of July 7th concerning the Long Island
Creek Pumping Stations because we wanted to review the original contract for
the Metropolitan Sewer System, and subsequent amendments under which the
va rious s ewag e facilities have been constructed, remodeled and operated .
We think it would be very ba d indeed if we should depart , in this instance, from
the well- e stablished custom of having all municipalities and the County participate
in the cons truction and operation of each facility on the pro-rata basis of its use
of the fa cility . The suggestion which you ma de in your letter of July 7th, and the
earlier agreem ent which apparently was prepared in your office, of course , have
merit, but we feel tha t continua nce of a system which has wo rked w ell in the pa st not
only will b e fa ir in this insta nce, but will have some value because it follow s an
established custom .
Anot her reason why w e feel this course of action should be followed is that we have
other fa cilities, including FulCo, which should be t reated in the same m a nner . Undoubtedly in the futur e there will be other occasions where the County or the City
will build the fac ility, but the cost of construction a nd maintenance will be s hared
with other governments .
Will you consider the matter and draw a pr oposal in l ine with the exi sting amendments
t o the original contract?
