The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners will hear an update on its $18 million aquatic center on Tuesday.
Bill Echols, the county's director of capital projects, will give an update on the project during the commission's work session at 3 p.m.
Cherokee County last year awarded a $15.7 million contract to New South Construction to build the facility, which will be located off Sixes Road near Holly Springs. The project is currently $467,000 under budget.
During its meeting at 6 p.m, the commission will consider setting a public hearing date of Oct. 16 to take public comments on its proposed fiscal year 2013 budget.
County Commission Chairman Buzz Ahrens will lead the discussion on changing the make up of the county's Resource Recovery Development Authority, the board that issued up to $18 million in bonds to support the relocation of Ball Ground Recycling to land off Highway 5 near Ball Ground.
County Attorney Angela Davis will discuss the board an appointment to launch a forensic audit in the $18 million deal and Ball Ground Recycling's finances. She will also discuss with the board possibly drafting a letter to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, possibly inviting the GBI to investigate the ill-fated deal.
