Text of Document: TDOT is widening Highway 64 into a four lane highway. This requires the relocation of city owned utility lines. The city elected to have TDOT include water and/or sewer line relocation included in the state's contract with a contractor. The contractor made changes totaling approximately $116,000 and billed the city for it. The city attorney objected and called and asked MTAS to review the matter. The city did not have control over the contractor, as he reported to and was accountable to the State TDOT. MTAS agrees that the city should not be required for the added expense.
