A Greenwood City Council member is joining a city board a week before it will consider whether to pay for a $10 million aquatic center and replaces a member who asked questions about the proposal.
The council voted Monday to appoint council member Mike Campbell to the redevelopment commission. He’ll replace Lee Money, who resigned after he said council members expressed concerns about how he questioned a proposal for how to pay for a new pool.
Council members said they wanted more say over the redevelopment commission, which decides how to spend $7 million in property tax income a year. They also questioned whether Money should have been replaced and if a resident should be appointed instead of a council member to fill the vacancy after all the talk about more public involvement.
