Greenwood has stopped spending tax dollars on a lobbyist but hasn’t parted ways with the firm.
Lobbying by Indianapolis-based Barnes and Thornburg helped secure Greenwood federal funding to pay for a $1.1 million runway project, but the city isn’t keeping the group on its payroll.
Greenwood paid the law firm about $20,000 to lobby on its behalf, but the arrangement is over for the time being, Mayor Mark Myers said.
However, the city could use the law firm if needed to pursue money for a future project, he said.
Barnes and Thornburg flew the mayor to Washington and arranged to have him meet with Indiana congressmen.
