Council appoints Bush to CPW
Brian King
Staff Writer

Greenwood City Council appointed Art Bush to the Commissioner of Public Works seat vacated by the late Gene Hancock.

Bush’s nomination was approved unanimously on a 6-0 vote. Councilman Ronnie Ables abstained from the vote, as he was being considered for the seat. There is no timetable for Bush being sworn in to office, though city manager Charlie Barrineau said it would be fairly quickly.

In other business:

Council received their quarterly franchise check from Northland Communications for $39,031.71. That franchise fee represents 5 percent of the gross sales to residents in the City of Greenwood.

Council unanimously approved an ordinance that would allow salaried employees to receive overtime compensation in the event of natural disasters. That money would be reimbursed by federal agencies, but the ordinance has to exist in order to receive the reimbursement.

Council unanimously approved the acceptance of the Greenwood Railroad Historical Center Railcar Preservation Project Grant. The grant will help restore old railcars.

Council unanimously approved the city manager to apply for the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant. The grant will be used to buy five new in-car cameras and one new surveillance camera. Police Chief Gerald Brooks said he thought there were about 20 police vehicles that still used VHS tapes in their in-car cameras.

Council unanimously approved the destruction of records related to handbill distribution permits and applications after one year.
