HSE Utilities makes pitch to council

---- — Hoping to not surrender control of sewer services in former Union Township, Hamilton Southeastern Utilities proposed a deal to the Zionsville Town Council.

Ken Cochran, HSE Utilities president, offered a compromise Monday morning, Nov. 25, during the council’s agenda-setting meeting, to provide sewer services to portions of former Union Township.

In October 2011, the council, which had different members than the current council, voted 4-3 to terminate HSE’s sewer services in former Union Township. HSE Utilities was granted a Certificate of Territorial Authority nearly a year and a half before that to provide services to the area. The council wished to pursue Clay Waste to provide service to the former township, which is now part of Zionsville.

HSE Utilities still has not given up its CTA. In May 2012, the council discussed if it should ask the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission to enforce their prior decision.
