LEAF VACUUMING IN GREENVILLE
The City of Greenville leaf vacuuming program begins Monday, October 18 and continues through Friday, December 17, weather permitting. You are asked to rake your leaves to the edge of the curb or edge of your yard so the vacuum can reach them. Leaves should not be in the street or roadway. Please pile leaves no higher than three feet and make sure no sticks, brush or other yard debris are in the leaf piles.
BOND COUNTY BOARD AGREES TO LIGHTING OF COURTHOUSE BY GREENVILLE WOMEN'S CLUB
The Bond County Courthouse will light up once again. At the Tuesday morning Bond County Board meeting, the board agreed to a proposal from the Greenville Women's Club to light up the courthouse building. The plan is just getting started and the women's club will raise the money for the lights and the installation. There was also discussion of picnic tables being put on the courthouse lawn, but no decision was made to proceed.
The board agreed to lift the moratorium on new billboards being built in the county. It was discussed that state mandates already restrict where billboards may be built on state highways and it’s unlikely they would be built anywhere but state highways, due to traffic patterns.
The board also discussed the possibility of selling, at a minimal cost, an old squad car from the Bond County Sheriff’s Department to Sorento for use by their police officer. At this time, the Sorento Officer is without a squad car and is using a personal vehicle. The decision will likely come at the next Bond County Board meeting.
To see the open session of the meeting, tune to Greenville Cable Channel 12 at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday.
