Into the Vault: What’s new in The Xpress Files

This week’s additions to The Xpress Files, our online archive of government records on much-discussed and oft-debated local issues:

• The city of Asheville’s annual water-quality report, a federally mandated report card that aims to educate customers on what’s in their drinking water.

• The latest annual count of homeless people in Asheville, conducted by the Homeless Coalition, with breakdowns by income, time spent homeless and other factors.

• An official task force’s new plan to manage Buncombe County’s aging population in the years to come.

• The new annual report of the Buncombe County Child Protection/Fatality Prevention Team, which reviews child fatalities and cases involving the Department of Social Services’ Child Protective Services.
