SPECIAL GREENVILLE CITY COUNCIL MEETING TUESDAY

 

The council passed three ordinances needed to create an additional tax increment financing or TIF district in the city's industrial park. The new TIF area was created to improve Greenville's chances of getting a new industrial prospect known by the code name the Carolina project.  The Carolina project has been described as a large manufacturer with a 200 million dollar construction project and more than a hundred permanate jobs. Greenville and a location in Missouri are the finalists for the new plant.

 

In other action, the council heard a presentation from Don Rogier about his upcoming auction to sell off some of his property. The council accepted Rogier's offered to sell 6.17 acres of property to the city to be available for a future expansion of College Avenue to the east. The city will be paying 20 thousand dollars an acre for that land. Rogier's auction is scheduled for November 11, at the Greenville VFW. The city will soon be reducing the speed limit on south 4th Street from 55 miles per hour to 45. The change was necessary because the State of Illinois is mandating expensive upgrades to that part of 4th Street to allow the speed limit to remain at 55. The choice for the city was to spend money or reduce the speed limit. Watch for the new 45 mile per hour signs coming soon on south 4th Street.
