Longtime city official dies



A longtime Greenwood city board member will be remembered as a dedicated man who cherished the democratic process.

Dick Heiney served in various public positions, including the Greenwood city council, and died Saturday at the age of 78.

“He was just a wonderful man. He was a treasure and the city that Greenwood has become is due to his hard work,” Johnson County Election Board member Cindy Rapp said.

Heiney, a Democrat, served one term on the Greenwood City

Council in 1979 and was a longtime member of the city’s board of zoning appeals, plan commission and board of works.
