Port of Nashville Security

Tomorrow night Metro Council will vote on a resolution to accept a $1.5 million Homeland Security grant that would support risk management for the Port of Nashville (extending 10 miles up the Cumberland in either direction).  The grant requires Metro to provide $300K in matching funds.

Will Metro use this to lower the risk of an attack on the Central Water Treatment Plant and resulting harm to neighborhoods in and around Downtown?  And what part of the budget will the matching funds encumber?  Is it capital budget, and are those funds available given the Mayor's recent freeze on capital spending?
