-Memorandum of Agreement with the City of Adairsville and OWR, LLC for sanitary sewer service on Highway 41 South. The MOU now needs approval from the City of Adairsville. According to the MOU, OWR, LLC owns the land, known locally as the sunflower fields along Highway 41 just south of the airport, located outside of the city limits of Calhoun. LG Hausys is looking to expand in the area and will need sewer connection. According to the document, OWR, LLC and Gordon County requested the City of Calhoun to extend sewer service to the property with all costs paid by OWR or Gordon County without the requirement of annexation. Calhoun declined to provide the requested service, so the MOU with the City of Adairsville has been established. The MOU is not a commitment of funds by the City of Adairsville but is an agreement where OWR, LLC acknowledges the requirement of repayment in full of funds used by the City of Adairsville for completion of the project.
The MOU was approved and has been returned to the City of Adairsville for approval.
The next meeting of the Gordon County Board of Commissioners will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 19 at the Gordon County Administration Building in downtown Calhoun.
