Lake Committee to be Held

There will be a Lake Committee Meeting held on Monday, June 24, 2024, at 6PM at the Greenville Municipal Building.  The only topic for this meeting will be wakeboarding on Governor Bond Lake.  We will discuss whether wakeboarding should be an allowed activity and if allowed, what rules and regulations should be enacted.  The public is encouraged to attend. Any relevant published information in favor of or against will be encouraged for discussion and should be submitted to jhollenkamp@greenvilleillinois.com or delivered to the Greenville Municipal Building at 404 S. Third Street at least 10 days prior to the meeting.  Because we anticipate a large group, the public is asked to limit their comments to 5 minutes, so that everyone has a chance to speak. 

GREENVILLE WINS $1.9 MILLION STATE GRANT FOR DOWNTOWN PLAZA

 

The City of Greenville will be moving forward on a new downtown pavilion with a stage and bandstand to accommodate music and theatrical events thanks to the announcement of the city being awarded a $1.9 million state grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.

The Greenville Plaza Project will also include a welcome center, public restrooms, ADA-accessible ramps, and outdoor seating for dining and public events. The public plaza is a 100% municipal project and will cost $2.5 million. The state grant of $1.9 million under the competitive Downtowns and Illinois Main Streets Capital Program will be joined by a local match of federal American Rescue Plan Act funds, City funds and potential legacy gifts, to fund 20-25% (or $625,000) of the project. The construction effort will create dozens of jobs for skilled carpenters, electricians, operators, iron workers, laborers, cement masons and other high-quality tradespeople.
