  • In Greenville, the Herald Banner reports that Hunt County is interested in possibly buying the current location of Armstrong Appliance at 2527 Johnson St. The Banner reports that Armstrong is selling its assets to Greenville-based Crumpton TV and Armstrong Appliance’s last day of business will be this Thursday. Armstrong Appliance has been in that location since 1978. Hunt County Judge Bobby Stovall told the Herald-Banner the county is interested in taking over the property. It’s a 5,000-square-foot space directly across the street from the courthouse.
  • Also in Greenville, today Hunt County commissioners are set to consider the fate of one of Greenville’s historic buildings. The county owns the Paul Mathews Exchange building at the corner of Stonewall and Lee streets in downtown Greenville. The Greenville Herald Banner reports the building is a financial liability for the county. At this morning’s county commissioners meeting, officials will consider creating a committee to study options for the property. Hunt County bought the Paul Mathews Exchange building in 2015 for $2.5 million dollars. The seven-storey structure was completed in 1926 and renovated in 2003. Today’s regular meeting of the Hunt County Commissioners Court is set for 10 a.m. at the Auxiliary Courtroom at 2700 Johnson St. in Greenville.
