Farlow Drive move to cost Town $100k

The Town will pay no more than $100,000 for a project to realign Farlow Drive with a planned signalized entrance to the Costco development.

Farragut’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen unanimously approved a memorandum of understanding between the Town and Knox County regarding that realignment at its meeting Thursday, Sept. 8.

That section of Farlow Drive lies in Knox County.

“It will be a Knox County project,” Town administrator David Smoak said.

Farragut would reimburse the County for 25 percent of the total cost of the project, with a not-to-exceed amount of $100,000.

The Board also named the dates for its November and December meetings — months when the group normally meets only once.

This year, the Board will meet Tuesday, Nov. 15 and Thursday, Dec. 8.

Those dates will be its only regularly scheduled meetings for those months.

In other business, the Board:

• Approved Mayor Ralph McGill as voting delegate to National League of Cities Conference, with Vice Mayor Dot LaMarche and Alderman Bob Markli serving as alternates

• Approved special event directional signage for 2011 Parade of Homes

• Approved, on first reading, seven separate ordinances to various sections of Farragut Municipal Code, deleting information regarding fees for inspections and such.

The fees are now approved annually by the Board as a resolution, and thus needed to be deleted from the actual ordinances.
