Confusion over who should provide sewer services to a future Brown County entertainment venue could create roadblocks for the project moving forward.
The situation is complicated. There are multiple sewer districts in Brown County that serve different areas, where it’s hard to lay infrastructure for sewers
According to both county and city officials, it is likely the planned 2,000 seat Maple Leaf venue sits within the Brown County Regional Sewer District and outside of Nashville’s district.
But board members say that district has less than one dollar to its name. And it doesn’t have any customers or the infrastructure needed to begin offering service.
That could create holdups for the Maple Leaf.
Phil LeBlac serves on the regional sewer district’s board, but he declined to comment on which district the Maple Leaf fell in.
“We know that Maple Lead is pressing right now,” he says. “We certainly don’t want to impede the advancement of that project.”
This isn’t the first time there’s been problems determining what sewer district a business falls under. A dispute between Brown County Water Utilities and the Nashville Town Council over who has the rights to provide services to Quaff ON’s Hard Truth Hills is caught up in federal court.
