Travel Inn demo before commissioners Tuesday

by Sarah Fay Campbell

Tuesday night, the Coweta County Board of Commissioners will be considering a bid for the demolition of the Travel Inn, located at 1160 U.S. Hwy. 29 South.

Awarding a bid for asbestos abatement and the demolition of the building is on the agenda for the meeting. No other information was available on Friday.

The old hotel has been vacant for a few years, and some minor demolition work has already been done.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. and is held in the county commission chambers on Perry Street.

Other items on the agenda include:

• Voting to accept the “preferred alternate” for the intersection improvements at Old Corinth, Smokey, and Belk Roads. A public information open house was recently held on the intersection improvements, and visitors overwhelmingly preferred the plan that would align Belk Road and Meadow Sweet Way to a plan that wouldn’t change Meadow Sweet, which serves a subdivision.

• A request to temporarily close Haynie and J.W. Thompson roads.

• Recognition of Assistant Fire Chief Jimmy Gantt.
