Greenwood County Council approved an agreement between the Town of Ninety Six and the Greenwood County Sheriff's Office for GCSO to take over victim's services for the Ninety Six Police Department.

John Long, the officer in charge of professional standards, told council that NSPD approached GCSO in December about handling victim's services. Long said NSPD provides victim's services to about 10 victims each year, which would have no significant impact on current staffing at GCSO.

According to Long, the victim advocate's office was staffed with 10 people 10 years ago, but is staffed with just one person now. GCSO handles about 40,000 cases each year, according to Long.

In addition to taking over victim's services, GCSO will get about $40,000 from NSPD that is currently in the NSPD victim's services fund. Those monies are collected through court fines from defendants who are found guilty. Long said GCSO has also extended the offer to the Ware Shoals Police Department.

In other business:

Councilwoman Edith Childs presented Greenwood Mayor Welborn Adams with the Can of Corn Trophy for the City of Greenwood's victory in the annual City vs. County Food Drive.

Council passed rezoning requests for four different parcels of land.

Council passed second reading of an ordinance that would place a question on the ballot in the November 2014 general election which would allow bars and restaurants to sell alcohol on Sunday. Council also held a public hearing on the matter. No one spoke either for or against the ordinance.
