Only two legislators made it to the Asheville City Council discussion session Tuesday afternoon, held specifically to dialogue with the local delegation concerning the proposed merger of Asheville's water system with the Buncombe County Metropolitan Sewerage District. But those present – council members and legislators – did manage to get a few things off their chests.
With constitutional arguments concerning the Jan. 4 and 5 convenings of the N.C. Legislature now in the court system and the next scheduled session a month away on Feb. 16, the legislative calendar is currently dense with committee activity. And three committees specifically affecting Asheville and Buncombe County are part of the out-of-session action.
Windfall: The past week in the state legislature saw another host of new bills moved for such purposes as aiding public libraries and small businesses, and establishing wind-energy permitting procedures. Overall bill numbers this year are down, however, by around 12 percent, as the legislators economize on their ambitions.
