City of Union Residents:
Situated in the Upstate Region of South Carolina near the Greenville-Spartanburg metropolitan area,
Union County initiated the termination of its Animal Control contract with the City of Union effective July 18, 2022. The City and County entered into the contract in August, 2016, and at that time, the City turned over all equipment and supplies related to Animal Control to Union County. In addition to turning over the equipment and supplies, the City paid Union County $31,000 annually for Animal Control services, per the agreement. The Animal Control agreement was a completely separate contract from the Code Enforcement agreement with Union County. The Code Enforcement agreement was terminated effective June 30, 2022; the separate contract concerning Animal Control services was terminated by Union County effective July 18.
City residents also reside inside Union County, which means City residents pay taxes to Union County, giving these residents access to County services like Animal Control. Because of the County’s decision to abruptly terminate the Animal Control contract, the City asks that you remain patient as equipment, supplies, and personnel are restored to assist with these services inside the City limits.
