Greenville City Council To Discuss Downtown Security

The pressing issue of making downtown Greenville safer at the bars and night clubs goes before city council members Monday night.

The issue has come to the forefront since the June 30th double murder outside of The Other Place night club on Fifth Street. Bar owners and city leaders started discussing what changes can be made to make the area safer immediately after the crime.

Monday night, the Greenville City Council will consider three ordinances. On the table, having clubs provide security personnel, creating a minimum separation requirement for any new clubs, to keep the area from becoming saturated with night clubs, and prohibiting clubs from hiring bouncers with certain criminal backgrounds.

We'll keep you posted on what the council decides.
