Greenwood will keep a longtime redevelopment commission member who will help make decisions about spending up to $12 million in tax dollars on upcoming projects, including a pool and city hall renovations.
The Greenwood City Council approved keeping the last remaining original redevelopment commission member after discussing making changes. The city board has gotten three new members in the past year and been asked to pay for a growing number of city initiatives.
The council had considered replacing Garnet Vaughan because of the new direction the board has been taking. Council members also had talked about the possibility of putting a second council member on the board to have more say over how tens of millions of tax dollars are spent but decided they already had enough input.
