You are invited to join the Greenville Town Council and other citizens at the Florida Capitol on Tuesday, Feb. 13, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., for the First Annual Greenville Day.
Greenville Day was organized to give citizens and members of the council the chance to meet with Madison County Legislators to discuss the infrastructural needs of the Town of Greenville. There will also be briefings from the Rural Coalition and others on key issues affecting rural communities.
Edward Dean, Town Manager of Greenville talked about the appropriation requests at the Town Council meeting on Monday, Jan. 8, and the establishment of Greenville Day, on Tuesday, Feb. 13, at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee. “Those appropriation requests, they're not something that has to stand idle. You have to move on that. Every county in the state of Florida is fighting for limited resources,” said Dean. Dean has a five-year plan that he wants to outline including bringing the entire town from septic to sewer. He has also been working with the Department of Environmental Protection, regarding infrastructure issues in Greenville.
A free hot breakfast buffet will be available at the Greenville Town Hall, as well as a briefing by the Town Manager at Town Hall from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., on Tuesday, Feb. 13.
