At the Greenville City Council’s December meeting, the council approved the purchase and installation of a new dash cam system for the police department’s Expedition vehicle.
It was reported the old dash cam does not have the proper software to operate.
The new dash cam system, with hardware and software, will cost $10,956 and Whiteside Communication of rural Sorento will install it for $1,795.
The council adopted an ordinance to amend its sexual harassment policy to bring it into compliance with the new state law.
An ordinance was also amended to update staffing in the police department, which is now a chief, 2 sergeants and 7 police officers.
The council approved a downtown parking space for persons with disabilities.
It is on Main Avenue, between the alley and First street. It will be the first space west of First Street on the north side of Main.
The council entered into an agreement to allow Bond County Coroner Tony Brooks to erect a 12 by 21-foot metal carport at the city’s Public Works
Facility on South Fourth Street. The carport, which is inside the fence, will be used to park the coroner’s vehicle.
The council approved a variance to Carol Hurley regarding a garage along Forest Lane.
Councilmen also accepted the recommendation of the Board of Adjustments to deny a request from Pinnacle Sign Group regarding small parking signs at parking lots at Greenville University.
The signs have already been erected on city right-of-way, and the council’s action will force the university to move them.
