GREENVILLE SIGNS LETTER OF INTENT FOR RAIL BUSINESS

The Greenville City Council met Tuesday. Economic Development Coordinator Scott Lurkins reported a business signed a letter of intent to create a rail spur inside the Kelsey Park. Lurkins said a letter of intent had been received from an industrial company that plans to construct several miles of new rail in the Kelsey Business and Technology Park for the purpose of operating a rail-served business.  According to Lurkins, details of the agreement will remain confidential at this time.  Lurkins said, “This is really an exciting time for Greenville and will pave the way for future growth in our industrial parks.” He added, the project will result in jobs and investment for the city and provide significant improvement to road and rail infrastructure, which is vitally important to the future of the park.

BOND COUNTY HABITAT FOR HUMANITY HOLIDAY MAILER

Among the Christmas cards in your mailbox, you may see something from Bond County Habitat for Humanity.  The organization completed its annual Holiday Mailing last week.  President Larry Sayler said Habitat for Humanity in Bond County is doing great things.  In the past ten years, they have built six homes; four in Greenville and two in Pocahontas.  Six families now have safe, affordable, housing, who did not have previously.  Larry said they hope to begin working on their next home this fall.  Habitat for Humanity is not a hand out, but a hand up.  The families must work on the home as it is being built and they must pay a mortgage rate on the completed home.  Letters were recently sent to individuals who have donated to Habitat in the past.  If you did not receive a letter, you may still participate or donate by calling Larry at 664-1995.
