Greenwood Mayor Carolyn McAdams has made her wish list for 2017. Law enforcement — which includes, among other things, hiring more police officers and the possible implementation of ShotSpotter technology — is at the top.
The mayor said at least two existing junkyards and a tire recycler have been grandfathered to operate in the city. Under the proposed changes, all such businesses would be required to put up concealing fencing to shield the junk or tires from public view.
Marcus Banks does a great job as Greenwood’s fire chief. In his seven years at the helm, he has continued, and raised, the competence and responsiveness in his 54-firefighter department.
Soon, if Greenwood Mayor Carolyn McAdams gets her way, the city’s antiquated ordinances regulating hitching posts will be gone and residential homeowners will be able to keep up to three chickens on their property.
