easement be returned by quit claim deeds.

To authorize submission of a Federal Aviation Administration Grant Application, and approve
Work Order No. E3 with The LPA Group, Inc., for design and bidding services for the North
Apron Rehabilitation and Expansion Project, and for updating the Disadvantaged Business
Enterprise Tri-Annual Goal for Cobb County AirportMcCollum Field, MIS Contract No. 000852.

BACKGROUND
On December 9, 2014, the Board of Commissioners approved the Airport Capital Improvement
Plan (ACIP) for Cobb County Airport-McCollum Field, which identified the North Apron
Rehabilitation and Expansion Project as a 2015 project.
The project includes rehabilitating the North Apron from Taxilane A1 to the Corporate Row
Taxilane, expanding the North Apron between Taxilane A2 and the Corporate Row Taxilane,
constructing a new taxiway connector to serve the North Apron, and constructing a south parallel
taxiway hold apron.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the State of Georgia have expressed interest in
funding this project in FY15 or FY16. FAA grant funding will reimburse up to 90 percent of all
eligible construction and engineering costs, while State funding may reimburse up to 5 percent of
eligible construction costs.
In order to compete for grant funding, the local sponsor must have completed the design and
bidding of the project, and have an approved, updated tri-annual Disadvantaged Business
Enterprise (DBE) goal in place. The design, bidding, and DBE goal development costs are eligible
for 90 percent reimbursement from the anticipated FAA Grant award.

Agenda Item Number. 4

Once a grant has been offered, an agenda item will be presented to the Board for authorization to
accept and appropriate funding for the project, to include all related construction, design, bidding,
and DBE goal update costs.
As required by the FAA, the State has reviewed the fees associated with Work Order No. E3 and
determined the fees to be reasonable and eligible for reimbursement.

IMPACT STATEMENT
The total estimated cost for North Apron Rehabilitation and Expansion Project is $4,679,450.00.
Federal and State grant funding will provide an amount not to exceed $4,438,827.00, requiring a
local match not to exceed $240,623.00.
Work Order No. E3, in an amount not to exceed $151,400.00, will be eligible for a 90 percent
reimbursement from the anticipated FAA grant. The required 10 percent local match of $15,140.00
is available in the Airport's FY15 Operating Budget Fund Balance Reserve. The remaining local
match requirement for the project, not to exceed $225,483.00, is also available in the Airport's
FY15 Operating Budget Fund Balance Reserve.
The Department will request transfer of remaining local match funding and appropriation of FAA
and State grant funding at a later date, once a grant has been awarded.

FUNDING
Funding is available in the Grant Fund with the following interfund transfer of local match from
the Department's FY15 approved Operating Budget and appropriation of anticipated FAA Grant
funds for engineering, bidding, and DBE goal development fees:
Transfer from:

010-050-0720-8852 (Fund Bal. Reserves) $ 15,140.00

current circulation throughout the county of 2,000 copies to residents aged 55 years and older.

medium used to inform residents about upcoming programs, special events, class offerings and
other news relevant to the senior population.
These designated revenues will be used exclusively to help issue, expand circulation, and
manage costs associated with the publication of this monthly newspaper, as well as the printing
of a yearly Senior Directory.

PURPOSE
To approve Supplemental Agreement No. 1 (final) to the design/construction contract with
Albion Scaccia Enterprises, LLC for additional work required for the renovation of 277
Fairground Street.

BACKGROUND
The building at 277 Fairground Street was vacated by Senior Services and is no longer required
for a County purpose. The Property Advisory Commission recommended that the property be
declared surplus and the Board of Commissioners approved listing it for sale with McWhirter
Realty Partners on March 27, 2012. The Property Advisory Commission further voted to have
the County Attorneys Office negotiate a lease agreement between the County and the State of
Georgia Property Commission representing the Department of Family and Children Services
(DFCS) for the property.
The Property Advisory Commission asked Property Management to issue a Request for
Proposals (RFP) for design builders for certain renovations requested by DFCS to the building
on this property as set forth in design intent drawings provided by the State Property
Commission. The County would perform additional work to this building beyond the
renovations requested by the State to bring it into a tenantable condition, including replacing the
roof and the HVAC system. Additionally, these improvements would also make this property
more marketable in the future.

This item has been electronically signed by:
Sam Heaton, Director of Public Safety

DATE:

February 24, 2015

PURPOSE
To authorize the reclassification of a part-time Technician (2P) to part-time Coordinator (6P),
delete a Fiscal Technician III (Class Code 1012/Pay Grade 45) and reclassify to an
Administrative Specialist III (Class Code 1007/Pay Grade 47), and reclassify the General Crew
Chief (Class Code 4037/Pay Grade 46) to a Maintenance Technician III (Class Code 4012/Pay
Grade 48).

BACKGROUND
As part of recent changes in the Department of Public Safety, the new commander of Animal
Control has identified three positions to be reclassified due to the demands and duties of these
positions. Currently, the part-time Technician position (8302-097/Pay Grade 2P) is vacant and
with the reclassification to part-time Coordinator (Pay Grade 6P) it will allow a more skilled
employee to handle duties outside the current scope of the part-time Tech. The Fiscal
Technician III position (1012-087/Pay Grade 45) will be deleted and reclassified as an
Administrative Specialist III (Pay Grade 47) to assist with the complex administrative duties
for the efficiency of the department. The General Crew Chief position (4037-180/Pay Grade
46) will be reclassified to a Maintenance Technician III (Pay Grade 48) to better reflect the
duties being performed by this employee.
Upon review of these three positions within Animal Control, Human Resources confirms and
recommends the reclassification. The Department of Public Safety requests these positions be
reclassified to be consistent with the performance of the duties.

Agenda Item Number. 8

IMPACT STATEMENT
For the remainder of FY15, the amount that will need to be absorbed is $4,511.60. There is no
financial impact for the reclassification of the part-time position. The additional funding for
future years will be included in the FY16 budget request.

FUNDING
FFunding is available in the Animal Control operating budget to support these reclassifications.

RECOMMENDATION
The Board of Commissioners authorize the reclassification of a part-time Technician (2P) to
part-time Coordinator (6P), delete the Fiscal Technician III (class Code 1012/Pay Grade 45)
and reclassified to an Administrative Specialist III (Class Code 1007/Pay Grade 47), reclassify
the General Crew Chief (Class Code 4037/Pay Grade 46) to a Maintenance Technician III
(Class Code 4012/Pay Grade 48).

PURPOSE
To authorize the issuance and advertisement of a Request for Proposals to contract with a
vendor for False Alarm Billing and Tracking Services.

BACKGROUND
On September 23, 2008, the Cobb County Board of Commissioners approved a contract for
False Alarm Billing and Tracking Services with GTSI Corporation and Sub-Contractor Applied
Ordinance Technology (AOT) Public Safety Corporation. The contract expired on December
31, 2014.
On November 11, 2014, the Board of Commissioners approved a six-month contract extension
between the Cobb County Police Department (CCPD) and AOT Public Safety Corporation. The
extension was requested since proposed ordinance changes related to the false alarm program
are being considered by the Board of Commissioners on February 24, 2015. The Request For
Proposal and new vendor contract needs to take into account related false alarm ordinance
changes.
CCPD requests permission to advertise and to issue a Request for Proposal to vendors for Alarm
Billing and Tracking Services. A committee of county personnel yet to be determined, will
review proposals, and then submit a selection recommendation to the Board of Commissioners
at a later date.

PURPOSE
To authorize the reallocation of program funds and appropriation of interest income from U. S.
Department of Justice Fiscal Year 2013 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant
program to Cobb County Juvenile Court.

BACKGROUND
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) awarded Cobb County $91,871.00 in Fiscal Year (FY)
2013 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program funds for crime
prevention and justice system improvements. Cobb County has $1,309.71 in JAG 13 funds
available for reallocation. This includes $114.71 in interest income earned through December
2014 and $1,194.46 in unused funds from the Cobb County Police Department JAG grant. The
Police Department does not plan to use their remaining JAG 13 funds.
The CDBG Program Office in consultation with the Office of Finance and Economic
Development proposes to reallocate these funds to Cobb County Juvenile Court to pay for the
salary in its Gang Suppression Unit. Juvenile Court is the only Department with an open JAG 13
grant; all other recipients have closed out their JAG 13 grants.

IMPACT STATEMENT
Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant funds have been provided by the U.S.
Department of Justice and the reallocation of these funds is permissible according to JAG
guidelines. Under the JAG program, earned interest is considered program income and can be
reallocated for other eligible activities. There is no local match that will impact the General
Fund.

PURPOSE
To approve the four most qualified firms for engineering design services of the I-285 Multi-Use
Bridge, Project No. E7510.

BACKGROUND
The I-285 Pedestrian Bridge project consists of a multi-use bridge spanning Galleria Drive, I285 and Circle 75 Parkway to SunTrust Park and the mixed-use development on the northwest
side of I-285 near I-75. The bridge will provide pedestrian access to the Galleria parking deck,
and provide transit vehicle access to both Galleria Drive and Circle 75 Parkway. The total length
of the project is approximately 1,100 feet.
On November 25, 2014, the Board of Commissioners authorized the advertisement for and
conduct of a public hearing, and also authorized the Department to issue a Request for Proposals
(RFP) to secure engineering design services for the I-285 Pedestrian Bridge (now known as the
I-285 Multi-Use Bridge). Notice of Public Hearing was advertised in The Marietta Daily
Journal on December 19 and 26, 2014, and on January 2 and 9, 2015. The public hearing was
held on January 13, 2015.

Agenda Item Number. 1

The RFP was advertised in the Marietta Daily Journal on January 9, 16, 23, and 30, 2015, and
on February 6, 2015, in accordance with Selection Process 1 (Competitive Negotiations) in the
Policy for the Procurement of Professional Services, as amended by the Board on November 25,
2014. Proposals were received on February 12, 2015, with nine firms responding.
The following individuals served on the selection committee for this project: Sam Heaton,
Agency Director, Public Safety; Robert Hosack, Agency Director, Community Development;
Steve McCullers, Agency Director, Water Department; Michelle Swann, General Manager and
CEO of the Cobb-Marietta Coliseum & Exhibit Hall Authority; and Jim Wilgus, Deputy
Director, Department of Transportation. Additionally, Chris Pruitt, Transportation Division

committee.
The selection committee reviewed the proposals, and ranked the firms in each of the required
component areas based on their understanding of the project, proposed staffing, levels of
experience and past performance, project approach, availability, and financial stability.
The committee recommends the top four qualified firms to be, in alphabetic order:
AECOM Technical Services, Inc.
Michael Baker Jr., Inc.
Parsons Brinckerhoff, Inc.
T. Y. Lin International
Due to the complexity of the technical requirements, the top-ranked firms are being interviewed
to determine the final ranking. These interviews are scheduled to occur after the print deadline
for final agenda submittal. A revised agenda item will be submitted to the Clerk prior to the
Board meeting, listing firms in final ranked order to initiate negotiations with the top-ranked
firm.
Once the final scope of services and fees has been negotiated, an agenda item to award a
contract to the selected firm will be presented to the Board.

PURPOSE
To approve Project No. E2550-WO#04 to the 2013 Countywide Unit Price Contract with

PURPOSE
To approve an Intergovernmental Agreement with Cobb County School District for the
construction of school zone safety and operational improvements on Post Oak Tritt Road at
Hightower Trail Middle School, Project No. E8050.

BACKGROUND
Post Oak Tritt Road at Hightower Trail Middle School is an approved school zone safety and
operational improvements project in the 2011 Transportation Improvements Program.
The project consists of the addition of a right turn lane on Post Oak Tritt Road along with
associated improvements to utilize a second school driveway, and safety/operational
improvements at the existing Hightower Trail Middle School driveway. Both the Department
and the Cobb County School District (CCSD) have coordinated efforts, in accordance with the
Working Protocol effective November 2010, in developing plans to incorporate roadway and
on-site improvements into one joint project.
The project includes improvements to the existing school driveways and internal circulation
improvements all within school property, including resurfacing the main parking lot and
driveway; therefore, CCSD has agreed to fund construction, in an amount not to exceed
$228,954.00. The Department will include CCSD improvements in its contract for Post Oak
Tritt Road improvements, to be awarded at a later date. This Intergovernmental Agreement
between CCSD and Cobb County, which further defines the responsibilities of each party, is
contingent upon CCSD Board approval.
The Intergovernmental Agreement with CCSD has been reviewed by the County Attorney's
Office.

PURPOSE
To approve a Utility Relocation Agreement with Georgia Power Company for preliminary
engineering and relocation of facilities on Johnson Ferry Road at Sewell Mill Road, Project No.
D3220, MIS Contract No. 000847.

BACKGROUND
Johnson Ferry Road at Sewell Mill Road is an approved intersection safety and operational
improvements project in the 2005 SPLOST Transportation Improvements Program.
The project consists of relocating Pine Road approximately 100 feet west of its current
intersection with Sewell Mill Road, and reducing a vertical curve on Sewell Mill Road to
improve sight distance. Additional improvements include widening Sewell Mill Road to
provide one 11-foot wide westbound travel lane and a westbound left turn lane at Pine Road,
lengthening the eastbound right turn lane on Sewell Mill Road at Johnson Ferry Road, and
adding 5-foot wide sidewalks on both sides of Sewell Mill Road. The project length is
approximately 0.15 miles.
Construction of this project will require Georgia Power Company to remove and relocate their
existing facilities. Since the facilities may be located on Georgia Power Companys easement,
the cost for the relocation, in an amount not to exceed $106,542.00, may be reimbursable by
Cobb County.
The Utility Relocation Agreement has been reviewed by the County Attorneys Office.

PURPOSE
To approve Change Order No. 1 (final) to the contract with R. J. Haynie & Associates, Inc., for
Traffic Signals, Phase 1-Uninterruptible Power Supply System Installation, Project No. E5040, MIS
Contract No. 000670.

BACKGROUND
Traffic Signals is an approved project in the Traffic Management, Traffic Signal, Timing and
Planning Component of the 2011 SPLOST Transportation Improvements Program.
Beginning in 2006, battery back-up systems were installed at 56 Cobb County traffic signal locations
to maintain power to the signals in the event of a power disruption. The installation of the battery
back-up systems have proven successful, increasing public safety, reducing traffic congestion, and
avoiding unnecessary Public Safety and Transportation staff mobilization by providing continuous
power to traffic signals during power failures. The technology of battery back-up systems has
evolved into more reliable and affordable uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems that include
power conditioning, battery monitoring, and communication capabilities. Priorities for installation of
UPS systems include traffic signals with railroad preemption and high volume corridors. Several of
the existing battery back-up systems were reaching the end of their useful service life and needed to
be replaced.
On July 23, 2013, the Board of Commissioners approved a contract with R. J. Haynie & Associates,
Inc., for Traffic Signals, Phase 1-Uninterruptible Power Supply System Installation.

PURPOSE
To approve Supplemental Agreement No. 2 to the assigned design/build contract with Moss &
Associates, LLC, for roof replacements on the existing Airport Control Tower Base Building
and Maintenance Building at Cobb County AirportMcCollum Field.

BACKGROUND
On July 9, 2013, the Board of Commissioners approved a design/build contract with Peter
Brown Construction, Inc. (Peter Brown), in a total amount not to exceed $734,004.00. This
included design costs of $272,531.00, project fee costs of $135,733.00, and project general
condition costs of $325,740.00, for construction of the new Air Traffic Control Tower.
On June 10, 2014, the Board authorized the acceptance of the assignment of the design/build
contract with Peter Brown to Moss & Associates, LLC, (Moss) and approved Supplemental
Agreement No. 1, in an amount not to exceed $1,900,000.00, for construction of the new Air
Traffic Control Tower.
Cobb County Airport roof replacements were approved by the citizens in the 2011 SPLOST.
The existing Air Traffic Control Tower is being demolished, while the existing Base Building
will continue in service and will require the 20 year old shingle roof to be replaced after the
demolition. In addition, the Airport Maintenance Building has experienced numerous roof
leaks. These projects include tear off of existing roofs down to the decks, repairs to existing
decks and installation of new insulation, with metal roofing for the Base Building and shingle

roofing for the Maintenance Building.


Property Management received bids from the following qualified contractors:
Moss & Associates, LLC
TBM Roofing
Ideal Roofing
Eastern Corp. Roofing
SBM Roofing

$43,000.00
$47,074.57
$49,591.76
$64,380.21
$94,379.97

The lowest responsive bid for the roofing project is from Moss & Associates, LLC, in the
amount of $43,000.00. Property Management recommends awarding a contract to Moss not
only for their lowest bid, but also because they are performing a partial demolition of the
existing Airport Control Tower located in the Base Building; therefore, Moss has immediate
access to the site with construction staff already on site.

FUNDING
Funding is currently available in the 2011 SPLOST project budget as follows:
345-110-E072-8111-E0748-C

(McCollum Roofing)

$43,000.00

RECOMMENDATION
The Board of Commissioners approve Supplemental Agreement No. 2 to the assigned
design/build contract with Moss & Associates, LLC, in an amount not exceed $43,000.00, for
the 2011 SPLOST roof replacement projects at Cobb County Airport-McCollum Field;
and authorize the Chairman to execute the necessary documents.

PURPOSE
To approve Supplemental Agreement No. 1 to the contract with Choate Construction Company
for the Drivers License Facilities project.

BACKGROUND

On November 12, 2013, the Board of Commissioners approved the leases with the State
Properties Commission for two new Drivers License Facilities with one located at 1605 County
Services Parkway in Marietta and the second located at 3690 Old 41 Highway in Kennesaw.
On April 22, 2014, the Board of Commissioners approved a design/build contract with Choate
Construction Company, in the amount of $3,400,000.00, for the design and construction of the
two Drivers License Facilities.
This agenda item addresses issues that have arisen since the commencement of construction,
including moving the appropriate 2011 SPLOST funding to the project and incorporating
Change Directive No. 1 into Supplemental Agreement No. 1, as well as other unanticipated
items that have become apparent.
Supplemental Agreement No. 1 includes Change Directive No. 1, in the amount of $50,000.00,
for additional site work required, additional landscaping to be placed at the Kennesaw location
to further shield the site from the neighboring residential areas, and minor floor plan
reconfiguration at the County Services Parkway location as requested by Drivers License
staff. This Change Directive was earlier approved by the County Manager in order to maintain
the project schedule. Supplemental Agreement No. 1 also includes additional data outlets that
Page 127 of 157

Comm. Dist.

Agenda Item Number. 2

are required by the Drivers License staff, but not included in the original design, in the amount
of $5,767.00, as well as replacement of bad soils under portions of the paving that were not
anticipated per the soil investigations report, in the amount of $47,858.00.
The total amount of this Supplemental Agreement No. 1 is $103,625.00. No additional calendar
days are required for this work.
Original Contract Amount:
Supplemental Agreement No. 1:
Adjusted Contract Amount

$3,400,000.00
103,625.00
$3,503,625.00

The 2011 SPLOST included three improvement items for the Drivers License Facility located
on County Services Parkway; building exterior at $144,900.00, roof replacement at $75,000.00,
and heating and air conditioning replacement at $75,400.00, for a total of $295,300.00. Because
the current facility will be demolished once the new construction is complete these SPLOST
funds were determined to be available for utilization for the new facility.
The available project funding includes contingency of $50,000.00 and the remainder of the soil
investigation funding, in the amount of $18,211.00, for a total of $68,211.00. The difference
between the available funding of $68,211.00 and the cost of the Supplemental Agreement of
$103,625.00 is $35,414.00. The Countys Project Manager and the County Attorneys Office
will present this information to the State Properties Commission and seek reimbursement for the
remainder of $35,414.00.
When the contract for construction with Choate Construction Company was presented for
approval on April 22, 2014, the funding statement did not include the 2011 SPLOST funds and
all expenses were originally charged to the Fund 380 project budget. Expenses of $295,300.00
have since been moved from Fund 380 to the above mentioned 2011 SPLOST projects, leaving
a net amount of $259,886.00 available to be returned to the General Fund.

FUNDING
Funding is available in the project budget as follows:
380-110-4493-8810 (GA DDS-Contingency)
380-110-4493-8033 (GA DDS-Soil Testing)

Agenda Item Number. 1

Staffs with the Cobb County, City of Marietta, City of Smyrna, Dobbins Air Reserve Base, and
Department of Defense (DOD)-Office of Economic Adjustment will be working together over
the next ten to twelve months to support this project. Staff with the Community Development
Agency will be providing periodic updates to the Board of Commissioners and Planning
Commission. This presentation provides information on the kick-off meeting, goals of the
initiative, and intended public participation process.
Phase I of the project concentrates on data analysis and public dialogue on some of the
compatibility issues and concerns that impact both Dobbins Air Reserve Base and the residents,
businesses, and property owners that surround the base. Phase II of the project is defining and
prioritizing the issues with input from the community and stakeholders. Phase III of the project
is developing a list of projects that can be considered to mitigate the issues identified as most
critical to the community and military missions.
In June and November of 2014, staff with the Community Development Agency updated the
Board of Commissioners, City Council of Marietta, and City Council of Smyrna on progress
being made in this initiative. On July 9, 2014, October 30, 2014, and January 22, 2015 the
consultant team, elected officials, leadership at Dobbins Air Reserve Base, and jurisdictional
staff conducted public meetings to provide an opportunity for the residents, businesses, property
owners, and interested individuals to participate in the Dobbins Joint Land Use Study. On
January 27, 2015, Matrix Design Group presented the final study recommendations to the Board
of Commissioners. On February 3, 2015, the Cobb County Planning Commission recommended
approval of the Dobbins Air Reserve Base Joint Land Use Study to the Board of
Commissioners.

EXISTING FUTURE LAND USE: Industrial (IND)
PROPOSED FUTURE LAND USE:

Medium Density Residential (MDR)


Neighborhood Activity Center (NAC)

GENERAL LOCATION: South of Veterans Memorial Highway, east of Queens Mill Road

_______________________________________________________________
BACKGROUND:
Intent of Proposed Amendment:
The intent of this proposal is to provide a more appropriate future land use designation that aligns this area of the
county with the character and desires of the community
Definitions:
The purpose of the Industrial (IND) category is to provide for areas that can support heavy industrial and
manufacturing uses. Typical land uses for these areas include plants that convert raw materials into a finished
product.
The purpose of the Neighborhood Activity Center (NAC) category is to provide for areas that serve neighborhood
residents and businesses. Typical land uses for these areas include small offices, limited retail and grocery stores.
The purpose of the Medium Density Residential (MDR) category is to provide for areas that are suitable for
moderate density housing, between two and one-half (2.5) and five (5) dwelling units per acre.
Planning History:
The property has not been part of a previous Comprehensive Plan Amendment.
ANALYSIS:
The subject tract is made up of four parcels. Three of the four parcels, which front Veterans Memorial Highway,
are zoned R-20. The tract further from Veterans Memorial Highway is zoned HI. The existing future land use is
Industrial and surrounded by PRC, MDR & NAC. The MDR is surrounded to the west and south of subject
properties and the PRC is adjacent along the eastern boundary. NAC is contiguous for a small section fronting
Veterans Memorial. Nickajack Creek and its associated floodplain traverses through part of the site and provides
challenges to any development but especially Industrial development due to size requirements for most modern
day industrial buildings. Due to changing conditions that have occurred along Veterans Memorial Highway over
the last 10 years the industrial future land use is no longer a compatible use. A more appropriate future land use
would be NAC along the three parcels fronting Veterans Memorial Highway with MDR for the remainder of the
proposal. The NAC and MDR combination provides transitional uses within the subject tract and would be
consistent and compatible with existing adjacent uses.

2015 Comprehensive Plan Amendments

Page 138 of 157

1) Applicable Goals from the Comprehensive Plan:


a.) In the year 2030, Cobb is recognized as Georgias most complete community, a place that combines the
best of urban, suburban, and rural life to appeal to a broad spectrum of people.
b.) Cobb County is a business-friendly community that supports business development and entrepreneurship.
This orientation along with other attributes, has established Cobb as one of the best places to start a new
business, expand an existing business, or relocate a company.
2) Applicable Policies from the Comprehensive Plan:
a.) Address compatibility between land uses when making land use decisions.
b.) Promote the construction of mixed-use developments in appropriate areas.
c.) Provide sufficient opportunities for each land use type to serve the needs of the community, maintain the
current tax base, and balance/sustain a desired mix of residential types.
3) Consistency with existing Corridor Studies and Other Plans:
A small portion of this property is located within the boundaries of the approved River Line Master Plan and is
inconsistent with the preferred conceptual land use plan.
4) Adherence to Nodal Development Patterns:
Nodal development is encouraged at appropriate major intersections and discourages land use changes that lead
to strip development patterns with multiple driveways. The development of this site would result in the
expansion of the existing commercial node.
5) Consistency with Revitalization Goals:
Not applicable
6) Environment Impact:
At this level of analysis, staff is not able to identify any known environmental resources, restraints or concerns
that may be affected by this application.
7) Adjacency to Cities:
Not directly adjacent to incorporated city.
8) Transportation Analysis:
1. Major Thoroughfare Plan (Roadway Classification) Veterans Memorial Highway: Arterial
2. Number of Lanes (Existing): Veterans Memorial Highway: 4 lanes
3. Number of Lanes (Proposed): No change proposed
4. Traffic Volume (ADT): 26600 (2008) - Veterans Memorial Hwy, West of Discovery Blvd
5. Sidewalks: None
6. Bicycle Lanes/Trails:
a.) Veterans Memorial Trail (proposed)
b.) Nickajack Trail (proposed)
7. Transit: None
8. Proposed Projects of Impact: None
9. CTP Recommendations:
The five-year update of the Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) is currently in the process of being
finalized for the Board of Commissioners to consider in 2015. This multi-modal infrastructure
improvement plan will address present and anticipated transportation needs and will offer recommended
solutions for future transportation investments.

PURPOSE
To approve the appointment of the Chief Medical Examiner, to approve the employment
contract for the Chief Medical Examiner, and to approve the extensions to interim agreements
for Associate Medical Examiners.

BACKGROUND
In the Fall of 2014 the Chief Medical Examiner position was opened and applications were
accepted. A review committee was created to include Chief Deputy Milton Beck, Sheriffs
Office; Sam Heaton, Public Safety Director; Dr. Jack Kennedy, Cobb Douglas Public Health
Director; Vic Reynolds, District Attorney; Dr. Carol Terry, Chief Medical Examiner, Gwinnett
County.
The committee interviewed three candidates who were referred from Human Resources. After

employed as a Medical Examiner with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and has more than
13 years experience working as a Medical Examiner in state and local agencies. He is Board
certified in forensic pathology, anatomic pathology and clinical pathology. Dr. Gulledge is also
one of the Associate Medical Examiners providing coverage for the Cobb Medical Examiners
Office since early September 2014.

Agenda Item Number. 1

The Board of Commissioners' appointment of Dr. Gulledge at this time will allow him to close
out his active cases with the GBI before assuming his role as Chief Medical Examiner. During
the interim, the team of Associate Medical Examiners from the GBI will continue to cover the
Cobb Medical Examiner's Office on a rotating schedule through the time of Dr. Gulledges
appointment. Such contracts are recommended to be extended through May 1, in case there is a
need for coverage prior to the selection of a Deputy Chief Medical Examiner.
A three-year contract for the employment of Dr. Christopher Gulledge is provided under
separate cover and is expected to be finally negotiated in substantially similar form to the
attachment.

FUNDING
Funding is available in the FY15 budget approved for the Medical Examiners Office.

RECOMMENDATION
The Board of Commissioners approve the appointment of Dr. Christopher J. Gulledge, M.D.,
M.S. as Chief Medical Examiner, effective March 29, 2015; approve a three-year employment
contract for Dr. Gulledge in a form substantially similar to that provided under separate cover,
subject to final approval by the County Attorney; approve contracts with Associate Medical
Examiners to extend through May 1, 2015; and further authorize the Chairman to execute the
necessary documents.
