PETERSON DRIVE ROAD PROJECT TO BEGIN NEXT WEEK

Starting March 26th, the Peterson Industrial Drive road project will begin. According to Greenville Code Official Bill Grider, Bowman Drive will be close to through traffic from Rt. 127 east, to U.S. Route 40.

The construction is expected to last 45 working days. Once the project is complete, Bowman Drive will end at Peterson Drive, and Peterson Industrial Drive will be connected directly to U.S. Highway Route 40 to the south. The work will consist of relocating a 100-foot water line, installing a new storm sewer to help drain the area better, new sidewalks and a new road lawyer with curb and gutter from the new Carlisle building.

This project will make it much more convenient for workers and trucks entering and leaving the Foy Meyer Industrial Park. The estimated cost of the Peterson Drive road project is $450,000. It will be funded through CDAP funds, IDOT grants, and the City of Greenville. This will be the second of the larger road projects for the city of Greenville this year.


FORECLOSURE ISSUED ON MARINER'S VILLAGE RESORT IN CARLYLE

The operations of an area hotel are uncertain after a judge ordered a foreclosure on the mortgage last week. Mariner's Village Resort in Carlyle could possibly go up on the auction block this summer. A judge has ordered a redemption date, for the owners, of June 1st. An auction will be scheduled after that date has passed. Records indicate the owners are behind in payments to MTGLQ Investors, L.P. dating back over six years.

The City of Carlyle subleases the resort, and according to City Administrator Bill Gruen, the hotel should stay open during the process as stated in the lease agreement. Gruen also added that it's very possible for the mortgage company to bid what they are owed on the property and then sell it from there.

Mariner's Village encompasses the 65-room Mictrotel Inn and Suites, five cabins, an outdoor swimming pool, five-acre lake, restaurant and conference and banquet facilities.
