Plenty of comments in second town hall meeting

Greenville – There were plenty of comments during the second of two Greenville town hall meetings. The turnout for Monday night's meeting was much more impressive than for the first event on July 7.

As was the case with last week's meeting, City Manager Steven Alexander began by offering a presentation outlining the city's vision statement, guiding values and goals, along with details of the upcoming city budget. Alexander also touched on several key projects currently underway.

Individuals asked about the status of the Greenville Towne Center project and commented on drainage issues in portions of the city and wondered about who is responsible for the upkeep in apparently abandoned lots, and foreclosed homes, in residential subdivisions in south Greenville.
