July has been a busy month for the Greenville City Council.

In addition to approving a tax abatement for Ozark Logistics for a $7 million capital investment, a sales tax incentive for Roses Express, which will move into the soon-to-be vacant Fred’s building and purchasing 75 acres and large building next to Sherling Lake Park & Campground, several expenditures were approved.
