JEFFERSON CITY—The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved an agreement between the Commission Staff, TUK LLC and the Office of the Public Counsel which grants TUK LLC a certificate of convenience and necessity to provide sewer service in Jefferson County near Eureka, Missouri.
The Office of the Public Counsel is a separate state agency which represents the general public in matters before the Commission.
The agreement approved by the Commission contains a number of conditions including: TUK LLC will either enter into a valid written contract regarding the day-to-day plant operations for the sewer system or hire one or more part-time qualified employees who are able to undertake plant operational tasks.
