GREENVILLE — The Greenville City Council has appointed a former councilman to fill the vacancy on the council.
During Tuesday night’s regular meeting, the council voted to appoint Brian Greene to the council.
The vacancy came after the council accepted the resignation of former councilman and mayor Kenneth Snow during the last meeting on Jan. 17.
“I welcome Brian (to the council),” said Councilman Lloyd Scoby. “I think he will be a good asset.”
The council had 30 days to fill the position, said City Manager George Bosanic. The council had asked people who were interested in the position to submit a letter regarding why they were interested.
Letters were received from Larry Barthel, Steven Eipper, Brian Greene and Corey Smith.
Greene has previously served on the City Council and said he looks forward to being on the council again.
He has a background in planning, developing strategies and looking for alternatives through his experience on the city council, his current position on the Greenville Planning Commission and his time spent as a military officer, he said.
“I appreciate the opportunity to show how I can contribute to the city,” Greene said.
Greenville City Clerk Bradley Hool said Greene will serve as a councilman until the November elections.
During that time, Greene will then decide if he wants to run for the remainder of the term, which will be three more years, or run for an open four-year term against candidates.
