The Hamilton County Commission today approved five resolutions that will allow the county to acquire all the remaining land required to complete the segment of the Tennessee Riverwalk from the downtown waterfront to Middle Street in St. Elmo.

County Public Works Administrator Todd Leamon said last week once the resolutions are passed, the construction process can begin in March.
