DREDGING GOVERNOR BOND AN OPTION

 

The Greenville Lake Committee will meet tonight. On the agenda is a presentation from

String Ray Aquatics from Frankfurt, Illinois. They will offer information on portable dredging. City Code Enforcement Officer Matt Willman says this will work similar to a giant vacuum cleaner and can remove about a foot of sedimentation equivalent to an eighth of an acre.  It’s affordable and it doesn’t require heavy equipment so it won’t tear up your yard.  Anyone that has any desire to clean out an area in their lake is advised to attend.

 

The public is invited to attend the meeting tonight at 7 o’clock at Greenville City Hall.
