City buying land for $150K


Last Monday night the Greenville City Council met to discuss resolution 2017-04. If approved this resolution would allow the mayor to enter into a contract with Robert W. Bishop to purchase property adjacent to the Best Western.

The amount of the property is not to exceed $150,000. The property was appraised for $245,000. Mr. Bishop has agreed to sell the property for $150,000. The mayor says, he doesn’t have a buyer at the moment but he has someone that is interested in the property and it is easier to own the property, to be able to work the deal.

Currently Dairy Queen and Zaxby’s are looking at the property.

The council also authorized the police department to apply for a 2017 Edward Byrne Memorial Fund Justice Assistance Grant. The grant is administered through ADECA Law Enforcement Traffic Safety Division for SRT firearm/equipment in the amount of $4,500.

The police department is also applying for a JAG grant for patrol ballistic vest cover replacement in the amount of $4,000.

The next city council meeting will be held on Feb. 13 at 5:30 p.m.
