CITY OF GREENVILLE TO BEGIN REPAIRS TO BUCHHEIT BUILDING

The Greenville City Council recently voted to hire Korte Company to make repairs to the Buchheit building, which the city owns. Buchheit Store Manager Matt Seabaugh told us repairs should begin soon.

“The timeline is they are going to start repair either this Thursday or Sunday, depending on some material availability, with the repair taking about two weeks,” Seabaugh told WGEL. “We’ll be open for business. They’re going to do the repairs at night, we’re going to provide some security for our assets and they’re going to get it done over the night time hours so we don’t affect our customer service.”
