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.
Sandra Travis, program director for Asheville's festivals, has denied consulting with the Asheville Police Department before deciding not to book a hip-hop act for the Bele Chere festival. However, a new email reveals that one of Travis' staff believed otherwise, asserting her boss would consult with the APD "about community temperament." The city omitted the email from an earlier release to Xpress.
