Audrey Matott in The Greenville Pioneer reports that Greenville Code Enforcement Officer Mark Overbaugh wants better cell phone service in the area. "Seeing as it is my department's job to look after the health and welfare of the community, I would like to put a request in to the board and the town attorney to somehow find better cell service here for the town because it is a safety issue. It is more important than anything we have talked about tonight," he said at the July 17 town meeting. Some municipalities install their own municipal cell service, but Overbaugh suggested talking to current providers. That sparked a discussion about how there would inevitably be opposition from neighbors and others. Supervisor Paul Macko said, "We can put a letter together to Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and other carriers and put some feelers out an see if there is some interest in coming to this area."
