NEW RESTAURANT COMING TO GREENVILLE

 

The Greenville City Council held a special meeting Monday night to deal with a revolving loan and TIF agreement. The council voted to lend 150 thousand dollars, from the city's revolving loan fund, to Bob and Vickie Ellsworth to help build a Huddle House Restaurant on the lot just south of their Super 8 Motel on Route 127. The Huddle House is part of a nationwide franchise of 460 locations with several in Illinois. The Elsworths plan to hire ten full-time and 15 part-time employees. The project is in the Route 127/I-70 TIF or Tax Increment Financing district and the council also voted to enter into a TIF agreement that would return a percentage of extra property taxes to the developers. Vickie Ellsworth told the council they hope to start construction in February with completion in 90 to 120 days.

H1N1 FLU AND THE HOLIDAYS

 

Millions of people travel during the holiday season to spend time with family and friends.  With the H1N1 flu still circulating widely in Illinois and most of the country, Illinois Department of Health Director Dr. Damon T. Arnold urges you to take a few preventive measures.  He recommends that you stay at home if you are sick, wash your hands frequently, cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue or your sleeve, and get vaccinated for both the seasonal and the H1N1 flu.  The flu is spread mainly through person-to-person contact and holiday travel and gatherings increase the opportunity for contact making it an ideal way for illness to spread.  Don't let the flu ruin your holidays.
