-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.
