If Greenwood Commissioners of Public Works employees are going through a tough time and need to talk to a professional counselor, they will continue to have that opportunity.
The CPW board -- Henry Watts, Mike Monaghan and Art Bush -- voted last week to once again fund the CPW employee assistance program. The annual contract for that service is with Cornerstone, in the amount of $4,500.

As part of the program, CPW employees or their dependents are entitled to 10 free visits with Cornerstone per year, if needed.
