Horn Lake city officials will know more about whether or not the City of Memphis will continue to treat Horn Lake's sewage following a meeting of the Horn Lake Creek Interceptor Sewage District Board which was slated to meet Wednesday night.
"I will know more about it tomorrow," Horn Lake Mayor Allen Latimer said Wednesday, following reports that the City of Memphis was considering whether or not to cut back providing sewage treatment service outside the Memphis incorporated area.
As first reported in the Memphis Business Journal on Monday, Memphis Public Works Director Robert Knecht told that publication that it had decided not to renew its sewage contract with the City of Horn Lake.
Those comments were made back on April 5.
According to the Memphis Business Journal, Knecht said the decision was based on reserving capacity to treat wastewater for its customer base.
Bruce Prewett is DeSoto County's representative on the Horn Lake Creek Interceptor Sewage District Board. Prewett was reappointed to the Horn Lake Interceptor Sewage District Board last April.
Prewett could not be reached for comment for the purposes of this story on Wednesday.
