Editorial: Government moving back to heart of town

Greenwood city government plans to move most of its offices into a single building and move out of the current city building and rented space on Emerson Avenue.

Mayor Mark Myers has signed the paperwork to close on the $1.75 million purchase of the Presnell Cos. building, making the city the owner of the four-story tower at the southwest corner of Main Street and Madison Avenue.

With the purchase, Greenwood hopes to save money by no longer paying rent, cutting down on travel time between buildings and sparking Old Town revitalization. Myers said he was making good on a promise to consolidate most city government offices into one building.
