Jville Council Q&A: Ken Gregg
What is your top priority if elected?
My top priority would be to research the relevant issues that are before the City Council right now and educate myself so that I can make sound decisions. There are a number of things, such as the dam notching, the courthouse and the fire house. They are all interconnected through funding.
How would you fund notching of the reservoir dam?
I have spoken with (City Manager) Jeff Alvis about that and with one of the councilmen. They spoke about grants as a possibility.
If costs go higher than anticipated to update the city-owned courthouse for city offices, what would you propose?
I don’t think it should go to the private sector at all. It was designed and built as a government building. There is grant money to be had. I’ve been thinking about using one of the local, nonprofit agencies as a fundraising entity that could funnel funds into paying for additional repairs and refurbishment.
