GREENVILLE CITY COUNCIL APPROVES BONDS, RT. 127 ACCESS ROAD, AND STUDIES FOR SEWER AND STREET REPAIRS

The Greenville City Council met Tuesday night at 7:30. The council approved the issuance of two bonds, one for $10 million for Greenville Regional Hospital and one for $5 million for Greenville College. The council is moving forward with plans and construction of an access road from Route 127 to Buchheit.  The access road is an obligation in the development agreement struck with Buchheit and the project is coming in well under the budgeted allotment. The council approved an engineering study of the storm sewer flooding at Killarney Drive and Dewey Street. The city manager is to explore options regarding sanitary sewer failure from Route 127 to Ridge Avenue.  Approximately 1,100 feet of 18” fiberglass pipe is failing and causing a sinkhole. The council approved a variance for a South Central FS sign at their new location.  The council approved raising code violation penalties, defined in the city code, from a minimum of $25.00 to a minimum of $100.00.  They were actually losing $30.00 per code violation due to $25.00 court costs.
