Published 9:00pm Thursday, December 12, 2013

The City of Landrum hired three new employees in the past month, and they are ready to work hard to keep people safe and keep city business running smoothly.

The new employees are Rita Bruce, assistant city clerk; William Gipson, police officer; and Jack Davis, ordinance officer.

Bruce began her duties on Nov. 7. Gipson’s wife and daughter saw him sworn in as the city’s new police officer at the city council meeting on Dec. 10, and Davis also was sworn into office at that meeting. He spoke well of Landrum.

“Landrum is a friendly town,” Davis said. “It’s a real good group of people.”

Davis brings 23 years of experience working for Spartanburg County to this new position, and he is a lifelong resident of Spartanburg County.

He will enforce ordinances for the City of Landrum. If a house needs to be demolished or needs repairs, or if a car on a property lacks current tags and is inoperable, Davis will be there to sort things out and take care of the matter.

“I hope to have good working relationships and see what we can do to improve things together,” Davis said.
