CITY AUDIT PRESENTED AT LAST CITY COUNCIL MEETING
At the latest Greenville City Council meeting, West and Company of Greenville presented the city audit to the council. Alison Sears, of West and Company, presented the audit and gave the city a clear unqualified status. The city’s fianances are in good shape. The council voted to extend the TIF district on Route 127 and I-70, and voted to purchase a new leaf vacuum that should be ready before Fall.
The council also discussed the idea of allowing small non-liscensed vehicles on the city roads. Some towns in Illinois, like Breese and Greenup, have allowed golf carts and similar vehicles to drive on city streets. With high gas prices, the idea of driving small golf carts may allow residents to save on gasoline. A major concern, in the discussion, was safety on the roads. The council asked the city manager to contact the other towns that allow golf carts on their roads and see if they have had any safety problems. The council may take up this topic at a future meeting.
