The Greenville City Council recently approved a new 40-year contract with the Village of Smithboro to sell water to the village.
The new agreement allows Smithboro to supply water to consumers who do not reside within the village’s corporate limits and changes the language for the bulk user rate. Either party can terminate the agreement with six months written notice.
The council entered into an agreement with Diamond Cut Lawn Care to have the business mow the grass at properties that are not maintained and violate the city’s tall grass ordinance. Diamond Cut Lawn Care was the only bidder. Grass cannot exceed 10 inches in height.
After the unkempt lots are mowed, the city takes action to have the property owners provide reimbursement.
Also approved by the council was an agreement with PureLine Service to conduct four preventative maintenance and emergency visits to maintain cells and filters at the water plant. The cost is $15,800.
Deb Edwards was appointed to the Police Commission and Jeff Hemker was added to the Lake Committee.
