A special work session will be held at city hall at 4:30 PM located at 2821 Washington Street in Greenville, Texas. Council members will address the Main Street Program headed by Doyle Dick.
Main Street is a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation that combines historic preservation with economic development to restore prosperity and vitality to downtowns and neighborhood business districts.
The Main Street Division promotes downtown revitalization through a comprehensive approach of economic restructuring, design, historic preservation, and promotion to enhance the cultural, economic, and historical significance of downtown.
The council will hear reports from the Fire Chief Jeremy Powell, Acting Police Chief Scott Smith, and Public Works Director John Wright.
The regular session will start at 6 PM. The council is expected to reappoint Ms. Sue Ann Harting as one of two representatives to the Texas Municipal Power Agency (TMPA). Ms. Harting has served on the agency’s board of directors for twenty plus years. Harting’s appointment ends July 18, 2018. TMPA is a consortium of four cities that jointly own the Gibbons Creek Power Plant in South Texas. Greenville along with the Cities of Bryan, Denton, and Garland is part of TMPA. The coal-fired steam plant has been on the open market for some time.
The City Finance Department recommends hiring the firm of Whitley and Penn to perform the audit. The accounting firm will charge Greenville $74,820 for the year-long contract.
