Following the hearing, the board approved Resolution 2020-01. The resolution authorizing and providing for the financing of the construction of a water facilities project, including authorizing the execution of the applications, contractual agreements, and other necessary documents, and making certain representations, certifications, and pledges of certain revenue in connection with such financing.

Mayor Duggin pointed out that Main Street is more than just a street, it is also a state highway.

AAAny changes or improvements will need to involve the Tennessee Department of Transportation.  A meeting with state transportation officials is scheduled in the very near future.
