At their recent meeting, Spartanburg City Council heard an update on the Spartanburg Area Chamber of Commerce’s “Keep OneSpartanburg Beautiful” initiative.
A project of the One Spartanburg plan, the effort seeks to beautify gateways into Spartanburg, establish community clean-up days, and includes an education and community awareness around roadside litter and illegal dumping. The project aims to become an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful.
Also at the meeting, council voted 6-0 (Council member Sterling Anderson was absent due to illness) to pass a final reading on an amendment to the city’s nuisance ordinance to include sound created by the collection of commercial solid waste between the hours 9:00 pm and 7:00 am. The new rule includes proscribed penalties for those fined, with the first offense including a written warning, second offense including a $250 fine, and third offense including a $500 fine. Penalties could also include suspension and ultimate revocation of a city business license to habitual offenders of the new ordinance.
