GREENVILLE, S.C. -

The Greenville County Disabilities and Special Needs Board wants your input, as it works to rebuild its image.

Greenville County Council appointed all new members to the board in June 2012, after an audit showed the agency was more than $1.5 million in debt. Council members said the old board made bad financial decisions and put the organization as well as its services at risk.

Since the board was replaced, the group has been hosting town hall meetings to get input from the community. The most recent was held Wednesday morning. If you missed it, you'll have one last chance to share your thoughts about the board and its operations.

The final town hall meeting is scheduled for Monday, September 30th at 6 p.m. It will take place at Piedmont Skills at 106 Hughes Street in Fountain Inn.

For more information about the meeting, call 864-288-1907, extension 3538.

    7 On Your Side Investigations uncovered new documents that detail a “politically sensitive” proposal for overhauling the Greenville County EMS system. The plan would change the way ambulances respond in a 9-1-1 emergency and would give control of the life-saving service to the county's largest hospital chain, Greenville Health System.
