The Greenville City Council Tuesday agreed to take the first step under a new lease agreement between the city and L-3 Communications Integrated Systems.
One council member voted against the measure, amid concerns over the potential future cost to the city.
City Attorney Daniel Ray said the ordinance to establish an alternative construction permitting and inspection fee assessment at Majors Field Municipal Airport was included under the agreement approved by the council in October.
The Greenville City Council could vote next month to enter into a formal agreement with developers behind a massive planned community just west of the city.
The council heard Tuesday from Alexa C. Knight and Matt Robinson with the Walton Development & Management about the proposal to establish a multi-use development, which has been on the drawing boards for the past few years.
The Greenville City Council is scheduled, again, to accept the resignation of City Attorney Brent A. Money. The Council intends to vote on the resignation during Tuesday’s regular session, starting at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Building.
