COSTCO IS THE TOP-SECRET BUSINESS, COMING TO "PROJECT HILLTOP" IN CATOOSA COUNTY.  THE IDENTITY OF THE RETAILER HAS BEEN KEPT QUIET… BUT ACCORDING TO THE CHATTANOOGA TIMES FREE-PRESS… IT LEAKED IN A PUBLIC MEETING OF THE CATOOSA COUNTY WATER BOARD.

CATOOSA COUNTY OFFICIALS WOULD NOT COMMENT… AND COSTCO WILL NOT COMMENT.  PROJECT HILLTOP IS LOCATED ON I-75 AT CLOUD SPRINGS ROAD IN CATOOSA.  THE COUNTY IS PURCHASING 60-ACRES… HOPING TO PAY-OFF THE NOTE IN TWO TO FIVE YEARS AFTER COSTCO OPENS THIS SUMMER.
