The Greenville City Council met Tuesday night at the Municipal Building. 

Last month, the council heard a presentation by a representative of Good Energy regarding Municipal Electrical Aggregation and allowing Good Energy to negotiate the electric rates of those citizens wanting to participate.  The issue of pursuing aggregation will be on the April ballot but there needs to be a contract in place with Good Energy to do the marketing, public hearings, and pave the way.  The contract was approved unanimously.

The city has used a Caselle Software system since 2003 to facilitate the general ledger, cash receipts, payroll, utility billing, and work orders and according to City Manager Dave Willey, the system is the backbone of the city’s operation.  The recommendation to the council was to purchase a new software package from the same company at a cost of $44,250.00 with an annual maintenance cost of $8,700.00.  Willey said the city did not have the money earlier but the atrazine settlement went into the water department accounts and could be used to purchase the software.  The purchase was approved unanimously.
