Tourism is vital to Asheville, which is why pressing issues such as graffiti, vandalism, filth, panhandling, predatory towing and other problems will be addressed in a report by local tourism officials and city staff when Council meets for its Oct. 21 work session.
But that’s just one of the more than half-dozen topics Council members will discuss. Among other items on the agenda will be a fuel update, as well as a discussion of possible changes to the Civil Service law, Unified Development Ordinance approval requirements, letting developers pay fees into the city’s Housing Trust Fund rather than requiring them to include affordable units in their developments, and the use and enforcement of conservation easements in city parks.
Also, Council will consider appointments to a trio of city boards and commissions.
The meeting will begin Tuesday, Oct. 21, at 3 p.m. in Council chambers on the second floor of City Hall. The action also will be carried live on the city government TV channel (Charter Cable 11).
