Finally, some good news came out of Springfield this week.
No, it’s not a budget, but legislation has been passed and signed to release money the state was collecting and was supposed to pass on to cities, counties, townships and other entities.
Greenville Mayor Allan Gaffner said that the city will be receiving the money owed to it, including motor fuel tax funds, lottery receipts, video gaming receipts and other taxes collected throughout the state.
