HUNTINGDON — Carroll County commissioners approved a contract with the Tennessee Department of Transportation to construct an industrial access road for Pottery Direct in the industrial park at the Carroll County Airport. The proposed work is along Rochelle Store Road.
Last year, the county budgeted $25,000 during this fiscal year to construct a road, however, after Mayor Joseph Butler worked with the Tennessee Department of Transportation, the department has agreed to participate and construct an industrial-grade access road to serve Pottery Direct, which will start construction later this year. The industrial road will serve one industrial site and provide access for future development. The total project is expected to cost over $1 million, with the county’s outlay under $25,000.
In other business, the commission applied for a litter and trash grant from TDOT, appointed Johnny Blount to the Audit Committee, and approved a budgetary transfer of $13,435.75 for proceeds from the insurance company to cover vehicle damage in the Sheriff’s Department.
Commissioners convene the second Monday night of each month, except July, December, and February.
