The Greenville City Council voted unanimously to amend portions of an ordinance regulating safety training and qualifications for bouncers at city nightclubs.

Greenville Police Department Capt. Chris Ivey told the council members the department wanted to work with club and restaurant owners to relieve some of burdensome details of the safety regulations.

The ordinance requires background checks for employees designated as bouncers, and requires that they attend training provided by the police department. Proof of compliance must be submitted to the police chief.
