On October 9, 2020 the Town of Cape Charles accepted for consideration an unsolicited conceptual proposal from AQUA Virginia, Inc. to acquire and operate the Town’s water and wastewater assets. This proposal was offered in compliance with the Virginia Public-Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act (PPEA) and locally adopted PPEA guidelines.
The Town of Cape Charles will begin evaluation of this proposal to determine if it is in the best interest of the Town to advance the concept to the detailed phase of the PPEA. The Town also encourages additional unsolicited proposals to acquire and operate these assets. All such competing proposals must conform to the PPEA, the Town’s PPEA Guidelines, and be received in the office of the Town Manager no later than 4:30 p.m. on November 30, 2020.
The Town reserves the right to negotiate an interim and/or comprehensive agreement with this or another proposer responding to this notice, as outlined in the Town’s PPEA Guidelines. Should this concept be advanced, a full public process will follow.
