COUNTY OF HENDERSON                                                                             MARCH 21, 2001


The Cane Creek Water and Sewer District met for a regularly scheduled meeting at 9:00 a.m. in the Commissioners= Conference Room of the Henderson County Office Building at 100 North King Street, Hendersonville, North Carolina.


Those present were:  Chairman Bill Moyer, Vice-Chair Marilyn Gordon, Commissioner Grady Hawkins, Commissioner Charlie Messer, Commissioner Don Ward, County Manager David E. Nicholson, County Attorney Angela S. Beeker, and Clerk to the Board Elizabeth W. Corn.


Also present were: Public Information Officer Chris S. Coulson and County Engineer Gary Tweed.



Minutes were presented for the Board=s review and approval of the February 5, 2001 meeting.


Commissioner Hawkins made the motion to approve the minutes as presented. All voted in favor and the motion carried.



Chairman Moyer reminded the Board that the Asheville-Buncombe-Henderson Water Authority is planning to develop a master plan to determine growth areas for water service.  We have asked them to include us as part of their Master Planning process.  Henderson County has produced a map of where we perceive there will be growth in the next 20 years.  They would have to consider providing water for the area. 


Staff proposed that we submit the map to the Water Authority as our recommended study area. 


Gary Tweed reviewed the map in detail with the Board and answered questions.


Chairman Moyer asked the Board=s blessing on the map.  It was the consensus of the Board to forward the map to the Water Authority to include in their study for their Master Plan.  This does not lock us into that area.  Chairman Moyer stated that we could offer changes of where growth areas are anytime in the future.


Chairman Moyer then made the motion to forward the map (exhibit A) to the Water Authority as stated above.  All voted in favor and the motion carried.



Funding for this project will come from a number of different sources including EPA, Clean Water Management Trust Fund, State Capital Building Fund (ADM Fund) and local dollars.  A preliminary funding chart (Exhibit B) was distributed to the Board and Mr. Nicholson discussed it briefly with the Board.  Staff has been having discussions with representatives from both the Federal and State Governments concerning the grants.

Gary Tweed discussed the need to construct the line to serve the businesses at the intersection of NC #280 and NC #191.  Gary reviewed with the Board a chart (Exhibit C) which indicates the flow which could be generated through the construction of this line. 


David Nicholson asked the Board to authorize Gary Tweed and our Engineer to proceed with the engineering of the Business Collector Line (Section III). Gary explained that this line terminates behind Mills River Village subdivision.  There=s a line coming by the subdivision up to the school, by Van Wingerden and up Brandy Branch (creek).  The business line then takes off from behind Mills River Village and parallels Hwy. # 191 and over behind the restaurant area.  There will be a couple of spurs, one heads over to Carland=s property area and another one that comes up by Waycaster and by Food Lion.  


Commissioner Gordon made the motion to approve the engineering for the Business Collector Line for Mills River, continue it as has already been done with the other engineering work (use Lapsley & Assoc.), not to exceed $30,000.00 and to amend the previously adopted Resolution to incorporate this project into that Resolution.  All voted in favor and the motion carried. Staff will put something on the Board=s consent agenda to reflect this action.


There being no further business to come before the Board, Commissioner Ward made the motion to adjourn as the Cane Creek Water and Sewer District Board.  All voted in favor and the motion carried.
