IMPROVEMENTS COMING TO ROADS IN MONTROSE CEMETERY

Improvements are coming to the roads in Montrose Cemetery.  At Tuesday night’s special Greenville City Council meeting, the council voted to use some of the excess money from the monument damage settlement to improve many of the roads in Montrose Cemetery.  The current rock and grass roads will be asphalted.  Rueters Asphalt had the lowest bid at $45,000.00.  2 ½ inches of asphalt will cover the current base including the turnabout, the hilled area, and many, but not all, of the other roads.  The asphalt will be a major improvement to the current road conditions.  The council also voted to contract with Mains Tree Service to remove some dead and deceased trees from Montrose Cemetery, again using funds from the insurance settlement in the amount of $6,500.00.  City Manager Dave Willey said Mains has worked in the cemetery before and the work has always been done very well.

GHS ROBOTICS TEAM

Greenville High School’s new Robotics Team recently competed at a Botball tournament.  Team sponsor Ginny Larsson told WGEL this is the program’s first year.  The school provided them with some funding and they sent out letters asking for additional money to help buy supplies and materials.  The team uses an engineering process.  This means they first sit down and brainstorm ideas for a design, build the design, run the design through tests, and then start all over again.  The team recently competed at the Greater St. Louis Regional Botball Tournament at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.  There were 17 schools at the competition and Greenville placed fourth overall and received the Best Engineering Design and Best Engineering Fix awards.  Ginny said she is very proud of her students and their wonderful performance.
