Austell’s Threadmill entrance to see improvements

To enhance the city’s new water fountains at the front of the Threadmill Complex, 5000 Austell Powder Springs Road SW, the city will spend about $73,000 to install irrigation and landscaping.

This decision was made on June 3 by the Austell City Council.

The work should be completed in about two weeks, said Jim Graham, the city’s director of the Community Affairs and Parks Departments.

Creative Cuts Landscape Design & Maintenance of Kennesaw will provide the landscaping.

Between 400 to 450 shrubs and trees will be planted for around $55,000.

Also included is a one-year warranty on all plant material with the proper management of the irrigation system throughout the year and installation of the city’s pine straw around the newly landscaped areas, according to Chase Caccavale of Creative Cuts Landscape.

For $18,000, the irrigation zone will be installed by American Iron Outdoors of Rockmart.

Funding will come from the 2016 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax.
