As for the Di­etz Road project, the board unan­i­mously ap­proved the con­tract with Chat­tanooga-based CTI En­gi­neers, Inc.

“As you know, we have the Publix that’s com­ing at the in­ter­sec­tion there at Di­etz and Bat­tle­field Park­way,” Long said. “We have been look­ing

at the is­sue about traf­fic. This pro­posal is for CTI En­gi­neer­ing for $72,400, and this will be for sur­vey­ing, de­sign, and per­mit­ting with GDOT (Ge­or­gia Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion), bid­ding as­sis­tance, con­struc­tion ad­min­is­tra­tion, res­i­dent project rep­re­sen­ta­tion, and traf­fic sig­nal­iza­tion with up­grad­ing, de­sign, and per­mit­ting for that also.”

When Coun­cil­man Jim Childs asked about how quickly the work

could be done, Long replied that he hopes the project will move as swiftly as pos­si­ble.

“We have told CTI that we need this on a fast track to try to get the con­struc­tion phase started,” Long said. “Ac­tu­ally, I spoke to a GDOT of­fice ad­min­is­tra­tor there out of our district to ex­plain to him what we’re go­ing to be do­ing to fast track with them on the sig­nal light there.”
