Greer CPW and Greenville-Spartanburg Airport District has agreed on a lease with the option to purchase approximately 5.07 acres for a substation to serve east Greer. Commissioners at Tuesday’s meeting also approved a low bid of $684,250 for a Bent Creek pump station upgrade.
The substation property is in Spartanburg County near Victor Hill Road and Hendrix Road. The Inland Port and the BMW Manufacturing warehouse are nearby.
Residents of Greer are invited to express their vision for the community’s future at a workshop Thursday, 5:30 – 7:30 at the Cannon Centre.
“The underlying thing not talked about is that Greer is a small town with a lot of character and is in the middle of an international business community,” said David Langley. “The question is ‘how do you grow without losing the value that makes Greer unique?’”
Only one bid was received for the construction of an Automated Gate Infrastructure at the Inland Port in Greer.
Melloul-Blamey Construction's bid if $1.048 million was accepted for installation of new weigh-in scales and associated components. The work will include scanners and cameras to scan license plates and other identifying components on the tractors and containers.
