Another big issue discussed at Greenville's City Council meeting Monday night was safety in the downtown area.
This coming after a double homicide over the summer lead to increased debate over how to handle the popular Greenville destination.
The hot-button issue of downtown crime boiled-over as city council members argued about this issue for two hours.
In the end, three ordinances were approved to be discussed during a public hearing at a future date those include background checks and professional training of bouncers at downtown bars and clubs along with the possible creation of a downtown safety coalition.
JJ McLamb with the downtown bar owners association likes that city council is moving forward.
