Greenville County Council votes to fund $25M training center

August 27, 2013

Told they won’t have to raise taxes, Greenville County Council members voted Monday to fund a $25 million bond issue for Greenville Technical College to build an industrial job training center.

Greenville Tech President Keith Miller said the funds will pay for the campus, which he said will include a 62,500-square-foot-building, an energy plant and access roads. The location has not been announced.

Miller said he hopes to get another $5 million from the state, and private industries have committed about $5 million. He said the project must also receive approval from the State Board for Technical and Comprehensive Education, the state Commission on Higher Education and the State Budget and Control Board.
