City to consider annexation

The Greenville City Council will take on the matter of the annexation of Gobbler Hollow at its meeting to be held Monday at 5:30 p.m.

Gobbler Hollow, or as it is now called, The Preserve at White Oak, is under consideration for annexation by the City of Greenville.

At the last Council meeting, the matter was opened for discussion but before they could vote to annex the property, it was decided to table the matter until this meeting.

Councilman Tommy Ryan explained that he wanted some time to visit the area and look around.

Mayor Dexter McLendon expressed his desire that the property be annexed saying it would give the city another quality subdivision.

According to Wayne Killough, who is currently building a home in the preserve, the golf course is all that is out there for now.

&uot;One contractor has 15 lots ready to build on while another has two lots,&uot; he said.

&uot;As soon as the city council finished on everything I think we’ll start developing.

Right now, we’re on hold waiting for the council.&uot;

In other business, the Council will award the bids for the new playground equipment at Sherling Lake, 300 new garbage carts for the sanitation department and a new cardiac monitor/defibrillator for the Greenville Fire Department’s Emergency Medical Services division.

Councilman James Lewis and Councilman Jeddo Bell will not be in attendance Monday night for they will be at the state’s League of Municipalities meeting in Huntsville.

The meeting begins promptly at 5:30 p.m. in Council chambers.
