>The City of Greenville will receive a $150,553 Roadwork Development Grant for the costs associated with the completion of public roadwork improvements in support of Continental Carbonic Products, Inc.’s project in the City of Greenville (Darke County). The project involves the construction of approximately 650 feet of roadway and four curb inlets north of the intersection of Jaysville-St. Johns Road and Sebring-Warner Road, which will create additional development and expansion opportunities at Greenville Industrial Park. The $278,000 project is expected to assist in creating 72 jobs.
>The Darke County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management would like to list some helpful ideas for preparing for the impending winter storm:
- Plan on enough supplies for a minimum of 3 days without utilities.
- Have spare batteries for flashlights and portable battery powered radio.
- Spare gas for generators, also DO NOT operate generators inside the house or garages, they should be outside.
- Use Cell phones sparingly, without electricity you will not be able to charge them.
- If you are on oxygen or any other life support – plan ahead for supplies and electricity or possible another place to stay during the storm event.
- If you use candles for light – use them safely.
These are only a few precautions to take for more information go to www.fema.gov/hazard/witner/index.shtm or Google winter preparedness.
