Klein, Thorpe & Jenkins' Michael A. Marrs has represented both the Village of Peotone in the sale of its water and sewer systems to a private entity, and the Village of Grant Park, in the sale of its water system to a private entity.

For both projects Michael negotiated Asset Purchase Agreements and Franchise Agreements with the private entity, and, following ICC approval, conducted closings on the multi-million dollar sales of the utility assets.

Both projects provided much-needed funding to the Villages in question for other purposes.
