The Second South Cheatham Utility District has a Board of Commissioners who take their positions very seriously. All Board members are very pleased with the latest inspection score. The Board of Commissioners pass policies and make sound financial decisions for the District. Our customers should be extremely proud to have these three members who also have experience and service with this District ranging from eleven to twenty years. Our Board has guided, and continues to guide this District through construction projects such as: a new water treatment facility, several new water tanks, waterline upgrades and also our current project, a raw water intake on Turnbull Creek. The sanitary survey scores we receive are the direct result of these Board Members’ leadership, experience, and knowledge, enabling them to provide the employees what they need for continued success and the production of quality, safe drinking water. Our Board consists of Commissioners Jason West (Chairman – Board Member for 20 years), H.O. Lampley (Secretary – Board Member for 18 years) and C.H. Hannah (Treasurer – Board Member for 11 years).
