MORE BOND COUNTY TRANSIT STOPS

 

Due to high demand, Bond County Transit is making more stops to accommodate passengers. Bond County Transit Director Terry Adcock said there will be approximately 9 more stops added in Greenville. The transit will still provide a “call on demand” service with residential pickups similar to a taxi service. Because of the high increase in need for the Bond County Transit they have added the stop to decrease wait time and make for a more organized route.   The new bus stop is located across from the Globe Theatre and the bus will stop every 30 minutes. With the changes, bus fare has remained the same.

NEW BOND COUNTY SCHOOL ROOF

 

More improvements for the Bond County Unit 2 building were discussed in a meeting on Wednesday. We talked to Unit 2 Maintenance Director Mike Wilhite, to hear what was discussed. He told us the Building and Grounds Committee, District Administration and School Architect are looking for options for replacement of the high school gym roof. It’s currently a shingled roof.  A new roof is necessary to protect the updates they did on the interior of the gym. A structural engineer and a metal manufacturer representative are going to come on sight and give an estimate to see if adding a new metal roof will even be possible.

The offenses occurred in the Summer of 2006 while Bareiter was in jail in Clinton County for unrelated charges.  Bareiter and his co-conspirator attempted to arrange the murders of witnesses against Bareiter so they could not testify against him.  The case is set for sentencing on December 5th.
