CITY COUNCIL HOLDS SPECIAL MEETING TUESDAY NIGHT

 

The Greenville City Council met Tuesday night in a special session.  The council considered a request to close a portion of Mill Hill this Saturday, for an upcoming biathlon.  The council discussed the matter for about an hour and while the council members all voiced their support for the event, it was the wording of the resolution from IDOT that had them worried.  In the resolution supplied by IDOT, to close a portion of the highway, it put all insurance liability, clean up, police traffic control, and expense on the city of Greenville.  The city council voted not to pass the resolution, meaning the event may still happen but the road will not be closed.
