Agreements with Senoia and Grantville are on the agenda for Tuesday night's meeting of the Coweta County Board of Commissioners.
The commissioners meet at 6 p.m. in the county commission chambers at Perry and East Washington streets.
The agreements include a resolution to the dispute between Coweta County and Grantville over funds due for the construction of the Granville Branch Library, and an intergovernmental agreement for a new park in Senoia.
Coweta County says that Grantville owes $126,773 that the city committed to pay to allow for a larger library.
The county has agreed to credit the $20,000 a year the city paid in 2009, 2010 and 2011 toward the debt, leaving the city owing $66,773.
According to the agreement provided with agenda materials, the Grantville City Council has agreed to the plan, contingent upon the Coweta LIbrary Board of Trustees voting to terminate the Branch Library Services Agreement.
It is the Branch Library Services Agreement that requires the city to pay $20,000 yearly. The agreement also provides for one Grantville representative on the board of trustees.

Upon the termination of the agreement, the city will no longer get to appoint a member to the county library trustees board.

The Senoia agreement is for a future park.

According to agenda materials, the county and Senoia have been working toward future planning and expansion of recreation facilities in the Senoia area. Senoia is in the process of purchasing additional land for recreation.

Under the proposed intergovernmental agreement, Senoia will deed the property over to the county. The new park would be called Leroy Johnson Park, which is currently the name of the existing recreation facility in Senoia.

The county and city would develop a master plan, and the county would develop the property in accordance with the master plan. The county would have three years to begin construction, after receiving the warranty deed from the city.

Other items on the agenda include:

• Approval of proposed fees for body art/body piercing establishments and operators.

The Coweta County Board of Health recently adopted rules and regulations governing body art and piercing establishments and operators, which go into effect May 1. The fee schedule will work in conjunction with those rules and regulations.

The fees include $500 for the plan review of a body art facility, a $300 annual fee for a studio, a $100 annual fee for each body art artist, a $100 re-inspection fee and $50 for guest artist licenses or temporary site permits.
