Asheville City Council preview: June 12 meeting

Asheville City Council will have a full day on Tuesday, June 12, with two workshops planned before the group dives into its formal session agenda at 5 p.m.

First up: A budget workshop at 1 p.m., one of the final looks at the city’s 2007-08 fiscal budget, which goes into effect July 1. Following that discussion, the Council will spend an hour discussing steep-slope rules before it commences its 5 p.m. formal session.

On the agenda for the formal session, Council has numerous items to consider. Chief among them: A public hearing on the budget, as well as a hearing on UDO amendments relating to changes to parking, loading and access standards.

Other hot topics will include a discussion on the city’s flood-management policy, not to mention a proposed ordinance to conduct partisan elections for mayoral and Council seats.

Those who cannot attend can watch the formal session live beginning at 5 p.m. on the Asheville Channel (Charter Cable channel 11).

    Shame on me.
    I old Jan How I felt about a proposed ordinance to conduct partisan elections for mayoral and Council seats.
    Brian is my neighbor and Robin is a friend.
    I didn’t think I needed to bother them with “politics”.
    Is this something the Council might take another look at?
    See you guys at the polls, if not before.
    Shame on me. You too Brownie

  2. I listened to Matt on the radio this afternoon. Seems a recall election is gaining steam. Most everyone I know (myself included) is incensed at the city council. What were they thinking? This is blatant partisan politics in a place where it does not belong.
