Combined sewer overflow contract approved

Land near 10th Street pump station drawing interest



Mayor Mike Moore, who is a sewer board member, said there is potential interest by the city’s redevelopment commission to purchase nearby property and said it needs to be clear to who holds title to the land.

Josh Hillman, engineer with Jacobi, Toombs and Lanz, Inc., said the additional study would map and identify all of the properties in that area.

Moore added that the property across the street from the pump station that was formerly Andy Hampton’s Auto Sales, which will be adjacent to Falls Landing Park, also has potential suitors.

“There are developers that have shown a great deal of interest in that property,” he said.

Because both properties are near a main entrance to the city — at the 10th Street exit off of Interstate 65 — and drawing interest from potential developers, Moore again pressed the need to construct a fence that will surround the pump station and the odor-control system.

Ashack agreed to make the fence’s construction a priority.
