Gov. Bev Perdue says she will neither sign nor veto state legislation that would allow the Metropolitan Sewerage District of Buncombe County to also operate as a water authority, and changing the MSD board's representation formula. That sets the changes on their way to becoming law.

The Asheville Downtown Association released a draft of their statement regarding the City of Asheville's water system. In the release, the ADA says, "...the 25 year Water Authority experiment was a financial failure for the Citizens of Asheville." This draft comes out on the day that Mountain Voices Alliance will host a forum about the water system at 6:30 p.m. at Jubilee!, 46 Wall St. in downtown Asheville. The state's study committee will also hold a public hearing later this week, Thursday, Feb. 23.
With several forums held or about to be held, the topic du jour — what to do with our water system — local business owner Dwight Butner offers his thoughts on the issue: At the risk of offending numerous people in and out of government who I deeply respect, some unvarnished candor and truth is in order.
