If it’s the first Tuesday of the month, it can only mean one thing: It’s Buncombe County Commissioners time!
Bring the whole family to the board’s Dec. 4 meeting, which begins with public comment at 4 p.m.!
See local government in action!
Watch as the board considers a series of rezoning requests from county residents!
Thrill as it elects a vice-chairman!
Plows its way through a handful of conservation easement requests!
Authorizes contracts for site development at the new Buncombe County Animal Shelter!
Weighs reimbursing the county for a number of capital expenses using proceeds from “certain tax-exempt obligations”!
And — last but not least — considers authorization of an installment-financing contract!
All of this and much, much more takes place in room 204 of the Buncombe County Courthouse.
When it ends is anybody’s guess.
