A long-time official with the city of Princeton, Mike Greenlee, has resigned his current position of north ward councilman – concluding 22 years of service to the community of Princeton. Greenlee last night attended his last Princeton City Council meeting, submitting his resignation, as Greenlee and his wife are planning to move away. Mike Greenlee served Princeton 18 years as the mayor; then the last four years as a councilman.
His departure leaves a vacancy on the council. The remaining members will consider appointing someone who resides in the north ward. The individual would serve on an appointed basis until the election next April when a one year unexpired term will be on the ballot at Princeton.
The Princeton City Council approved three service contracts with money coming out of the band tax. Funds from the ten cent tax levy are used to pay for entertainment.
Fifteen hundred dollars has been allocated to the Mercer County Health Department for the “awaken project” to be presented this fall to Princeton and North Mercer students as well as open to the public. The Princeton Chamber of Commerce will receive $250.00 for entertainment at the Independence Day celebration scheduled July 3rd. Seven hundred and fifty dollars was allocated for a band to perform at the Calamity Jane Day car show in September.
The Princeton Council also approved a fireworks permit to Bill Heck, and agreed to allow Jerry Allen to rent the fair barn, if needed due to weather, for a June 18th auction.
