GREENVILLE – The Greenville City Council met on Tuesday to hold a public forum about a proposed city land transfer, as well as pass several resolutions.
At the beginning of the meeting, a period was allotted for public comments about the proposed Marling Field and Harmon Field land transfer from the Greenville City to the Greenville City Schools, and Director of Administrative Services Jon McGreevey was present to field questions.
The plans for the field used for Greenville Youth Football was again questioned, and McGreevey assured the public and council that it was the school district’s intention to operate the land and facilities with no foreseeable changes.
Moving onto administrative reports, Safety Service Director Curt Garrison recommended that the council approve an application for a Community Home Investment Program (CHIP) Grant which is due in April. The grant allows for a potential of $400,000 to be provided to the City of Greenville, and is designed to assist local governments to address the needs of affordable housing development in their communities.
