Local Matters: The Bele Chere hip-hop controversy, food trucks and Buncombe County Commission update
In this edition of Local Matters — the Xpress weekly news podcast — reporter David Forbes talks about the controversy over the Bele Chere committee's reluctance to book hip-hop artist DJ Kool, and gives updates on the ongoing food truck ordinance battle. Reporter Christopher George also gives a rundown of the recent Buncombe County Commission meeting.

The city omitted the email from an earlier release to Xpress.
