Grant funds keep rolling into Greenwood.
Greenwood Commissioners of Public Works received a $487,700 Community Development Block Grant for improvements across several water lines. The lines to be improved are Alma, Ashwood, Cottonwood, Curtis, Glendale, Keisler and Orchard. The streets are concentrated in Wards 4, 5 and 6 with Keisler in Ward 1.


“Residents will see upgraded water lines, new fire hydrants, better water pressure and reliability,” City Manager Charlie Barrineau said.
CPW Manager Steve Reeves said the upgrades will bring fire protection to under-served areas.
“It’ll also increase the water supply and boost the water pressure,” Reeves said.
Barrineau said the grant represents the continuation of efforts by CPW’s grant writers.
