POSSIBLE FUTURE BUSINESS SOUTH OF I-70
At the most recent Greenville City Council meeting, information was discussed regarding the city providing sewer access on the south side of I-70. According to City Manager Dave Willey, a party with possible interest in placing a business near the old Skelly's Truck Stop location had inquired about sewer access. The price tag would be roughly $260,000 to get sewer access on the other side of the interstate. The City Council agreed that this could be done, with the business developer having to pay $100,000 of the costs, and the city picking up the remaining balance.
Willey also commented on the idea of placing a push button cross walk on Beaumont Avenue near Ganton Circle. Greenville College had requested this, along with a stop sign on Elm Street near at Durley. Willey said that this request was tabled by council members until more facts can be gathered and the council can talk with representatives at the college on the best way to go about getting both traffic devices in place.
