City Council Votes On Sewer Line Extension

The Greenville City Council voted once again, at its July 14 meeting, regarding a sewer line extension project on South Fourth Street to Route 40.

The city has received a loan from rural development to install sewer lines in several areas that currently do not have sewer service. It was proposed, in order to do the South Fourth Street area sooner, to proceed with this phase using the design-build process, and not seeking bids.

The first time the council voted on the matter, there were two in favor and two against, and one absent, so the motion to proceed failed.

At the recent meeting, the vote to proceed with design-build was approved on a vote of 4 to 1. In favor were Mayor Alan Gaffner, John Gillard, Roger Sanders and Mike Heath. Voting no was Jes Adam.

The business planning to move to South Fourth Street is Dave’s Greenlight Auto Sales, currently on Franklin Avenue in Greenville. Its owner, Dave Bearley, owns property immediately north of 4th Street Lanes.
