A Tuesday, Dec. 23, meeting scheduled to allow the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners to make their recommendation for the I-26 connector design has been canceled, with the board now planning to decide on the matter Jan. 6.
A statement from Kathy Hughes, clerk to the Board of Commissioners, was released today: “An issue has been raised about the sufficiency of the notice for the December 23 special meeting. The Buncombe County Board of Commissioners do not want any legal or procedural question to cloud the decision of the Board concerning the I-26 issue; therefore, the meeting for December 23 is cancelled and the item will be placed on the agenda for January 6, 2009.”
