This blog recently mentioned the oddity of Hendersonville City Council entertaining a resolution that would indirectly support the City of Asheville’s attempts to retain control of its water system in spite of legislative attempts to bestow the valuable enterprise on another entity. During Asheville City Council’s regularly-scheduled update on its good-faith negotiations with the Metropolitan Sewerage District, Phil Kleisler, the city’s official water dog, reported the Hendersonville council pulled the item from their agenda, and the city clerk could not tell why. Asheville Councilman Cecil Bothwell then offered that he had heard from a reliable source that the item had been pulled because some heavyweight had warned the Hendersonville council that “things would not go well for Hendersonville” (Bothwell’s words, which may or may not have quoted his source, who may or may not have quoted the middleman, who may or may not have quoted the heavyweight) if they signed it.
