Commissioner Messer made the motion for the Board to convene as Cane Creek Water & Sewer District.All voted in favor and the motion carried.



County Attorney Russ Burrell stated that the Board had received an amendment to the ordinance that deals with Cane Creek and the Sewer in general.It is a one paragraph addition.In very specific cases such as where there is a pump station or a forced main constructed by or on behalf of a necessary public use facility, Cane Creek may take ownership of the pump station or forced main.A necessary public use facility is defined as a fire station used by a voluntary fire department in Henderson County, or any building owned by or occupied on a long term basis by any unit or department of federal, North Carolina, or Henderson County Government.

County Manager Steve Wyatt explained that this enables the Commissioners to address the issue of the Fletcher Fire Department in the most cost effective manner.This would enable us to do that project for less than $25,000.It is a very narrow variation from policy for public purpose and safety.It will be owned and maintained by the sewer district.It will give the Board the flexibility to save approximately $100,000 on that project.


Commissioner Young made the motion that the Board amend the Sewer Extension Ordinance.All voted in favor and the motion carried.


Steve Wyatt stated that under the previous plan to provide sewer there was an issue of an acquirement of easement from Houser Investment Inc.Mr. Houser had asked that that the easement be returned as it will no longer be used.
