How arrogant can the Asheville City Council be? Not only do they not own the regional water system, but they want to tell everyone else in Buncombe and Henderson counties that their votes are the only ones that matter?
The truth is, all the water comes from outside Asheville city limits and involves six legal entities: Buncombe County, Asheville, Biltmore Forest, Woodfin, Henderson County and Mills River.
In fact, 60 percent of the people on the “Asheville water system” live outside the city limits! More bullying, attempting to control the region and telling folks outside the city they’re not important. Typical for Asheville.
