The City of Greenville will have to change a portion of its controversial “Alternative Financial Services” (AFS) ordinance. City Attorney Daniel Ray intends to meet with the Planning and Zoning Commission Monday to draft a version of the ordinance which will be considered by the City Council.

The ordinance would strike the language which currently prevents a payday loan company or similar business from opening in the same location where another such business closed.

In a memo to the Commission, Ray notes that the measure has been found to be illegal.

The Commission is scheduled to meet for its first regular session since March when it convenes at 5:30 p.m. Monday in the Municipal Building.

A public hearing is set prior to the Commission voting on whether to recommend approval of the revised ordinance to the Council, which will consider the issue August 27.
