City of Asheville Calling All Netizens

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usI've been receiving a weekly update of city council agendas and current news. This is a concise mailing that keeps you up-to-date without having to sit through those interminable meetings in person or on the gubmint channel. Every agenda point has a link to accompanying documents. It looks like the city government is working hard to inform and include the citizens of Asheville. They're asking you to get involved or at least stay up to speed. Take them up on it.

This go-round I've learned that Council will take up the following (excerpted):
Public Hearings
- Resolution authorizing the City Manager to enter into an agreement with the N.C. Dept. of Transportation to install ADA compliant ramps in conjunction with the Haywood Road resurfacing project.

- Resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute an Addendum to the Memorandum of Understanding with the U.S. Dept. of Housing & Urban Development for enforcement of fair housing by the Asheville-Buncombe Fair Housing Commission.

- Resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute an agreement with Orion Bus Industries Inc. for the purchase of buses.

New Business
A. Ordinance to increase taxicab fares.

B. Resolution amending the Fees & Charges Manual to delete the fee for taxicab inspections.

C. Wireless Internet Network Service for Asheville City.
