Walker County commissioner submits proposal to Erlanger

In a news release, Heiskell said the proposal brings the two parties close to a finalized agreement.

Walker, Catoosa and Dade counties have worked “feverishly” on reviewing and editing a draft proposal from Erlanger, the release said. If adopted, the finished document will be in effect for at least 20 years, the release said.
