Mayor Dexter McClendon encouraged participation in the Greenville Firefighter Association's Haunted Firehouse and noted the city's observance of trick-or-treating during the Greenville City Council's regularly scheduled meeting on Monday.

&#8220From what I hear they've had a lot of people out there,” said McClendon of the Haunted Firehouse. This is the second year in a row the GFA has produced the Haunted Firehouse, located on Highway 10 West, just outside of Greenville.

Trick-or-treat will be Monday, Oct. 31 from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. The Haunted Firehouse is open this weekend and on Halloween night from 7 to 11 p.m., said McClendon.

The council also approved three resolutions on Monday night, among those a retail liquor license for the Chamber of Commerce's Low Country Boil on Nov. 3.

Mayor Dexter McClendon said he has heard of no opposition to having alcohol sold at the event, scheduled to take place next Thursday at the Butler County Fair Grounds. Attendees must be 21 years old.

The council also approved a resolution to rescind resolution 2005-70, which authorized a pad rental agreement with FEMA for rentals at Sherling Lake following Hurricane Katrina. McClendon said FEMA notified the city that those rentals would not be needed.

A third resolution approved CDBG Housing Rehabilitation Policy and Procedures.
