After years of back and forth over the matter, it looks like the Asheville Civic Center will be one step closer to a new roof if City Council approves the contract for the $1.8 million project, which is on the agenda for Council’s July 14 meeting. Other items under consideration at the meeting:
• Following a June discussion on recycling and household waste, Council will now consider a state Department of National Resources grant to begin a residential composting program.
• On the housing front, Council may sell 7.9 acres at Brotherton Avenue to Habitat for Humanity, which plans to build 22 homes there.
• And talks continue over Asheville’s water relationship with Henderson County.
Asheville City Council meets Tuesday, July 14, at 5 p.m. on the second floor of City Hall. Click here for the complete agenda.
