The Greenville Town Council passed in February an ordinance prohibiting snipe signs within the Town of Greenville.  Snipe signs are generally placed in public right-of-ways, telephone poles, or on people's property without their permission.  These signs are left unmaintained and ultimately become litter.  

Each snipe sign will recieve a $50 fine.  Any sign that is placed higher than 6 feet will receive a $500 fine.  

Recently, The Banner-Gazette ran an article regarding the anti-litter efforts taking place in Greenville.  The article can be viewed at the link below;
