The City of Greer is researching potential cost-cutting measures for recycling.

At a city council meeting last week, Administrator Ed Driggers informed council that the city will be looking for ways to offset costs of curbside recycling because the market is low for receiving recycled items and charges exist for picking up the items.

Greer said goodbye to local legend Lonnie ‘Gee’ McGee at last Friday’s Greer High football game. He was presented with a Greer High jersey, a plaque and the key to the city during a pregame ceremony. Gee, who has spent decades attending games, marching with the band and making friends, moved to Clinton on Saturday.

How do you say goodbye to a lifelong friend?

By throwing them a parade, of course.

That’s what the Greer Police Department and members of the Greer High marching band did for Lonnie “Gee” McGee last Friday, shortly before Greer’s second round playoff game.

A water main break that left thousands without water in Blue Ridge last week may not be fully repaired for another month or two, officials say.

Blue Ridge Rural Water Company is still unsure of what it will cost to fix the break, which occurred at the Greer Commission of Public Works treatment plant at Lake Cunningham last Monday.

The smoking ban in Duncan continues, despite what some may think following a special called meeting with town council.

Last Tuesday, The Town of Duncan revisited ordinances that were passed since June 8. Because the town failed to publish agendas on its website, all action taken since then was negated. This includes a ban on smoking.
