Greenville City Council Acts On Task Force Items

The Greenville City Council will soon put some of the recommendations it received from the city's Crime Task Force into action.

City Councilman Calvin Mercer says the council approved requesting that the ABC Board allow Greenville police officers help enforce ABC laws.

Mercer says the ABC Board has rejected this request in the past, but Greenville Police Chief William Anderson strongly supports it.

The council also approved asking the state legislature to levy a tax or fee on the sale of alchohol, with the proceeds going to offsetting law enforcement costs.
