Commissioners seek solution to attending agenda meetings
Blue Ridge Now - about 3 years
Faced with the prospect of twice the number of meetings per month, the Henderson County Board of Commissioners will consider a staff proposal Jan. 6 that streamlines the process by which the board sets its upcoming agendas. The proposal would eliminate the need to hold four open commissioners' meetings per month, which was triggered when Commissioner Grady Hawkins announced Dec. 2 he would attend all agenda meetings held the Tuesdays before the two official commissioners' meetings. Previously, those meetings were attended only by the board's chairman and vice chairman in order to set the agenda for the next week's meeting. But Hawkins' attendance at the agenda meetings created a sticky situation for board leaders and for county staff. “They become a regular commissioners' meeting,” County Manager Steve Wyatt said. With three commissioners present, he said, staff is required by state open meetings laws to notify the public in advance because there is a quorum that potentially ...

Commissioners approve $112.2 million budget for FY 2013-14
Blue Ridge Now - over 3 years
Agreeing to disagree with some aspects of it, county commissioners unanimously passed a $112.2 million budget Monday for the fiscal year that begins July 1. The budget keeps property taxes level while fully funding public schools and giving county employees a 2.5 percent cost-of-living raise. The board approved only one last-minute change: adding $1,710 for dues in a national association of counties. In total, commissioners added roughly $2.3 million in spending to County Manager Steve Wyatt's proposed "base" budget of $109.8 million and pulled $6.72 million from savings to help cover expenses. Commissioners fully funded the public schools' request of $22 million, including $1 million for capital projects to improve school safety and upgrade facilities. They gave the Sheriff's Office $13.5 million, including funds for two new school resource officers, two new dispatchers and a crime analyst position. The county's Emergency Medical Services got $4.45 million, including funds t ...

County gets $6M settlement to fix Seven Falls
Blue Ridge Now - over 4 years
Henderson County has reached a $6 million settlement with Lexon Insurance Co. to fix infrastructure in the stalled Seven Falls development, originally marketed as a 1,400-acre golf course community in Etowah. County Attorney Russ Burrell told the Times-News in August that money received from Kentucky-based Lexon would be used to complete roads, water and sewer lines in the subdivision – a promise the county said the company outlined in a bond. “Lexon provided a $6 million bond to complete certain subdivision (not golf) infrastructure (primarily roads, public water, community sewer) on the project, in order to allow the developer, Seven Falls, LLC, to immediately sell lots after receiving subdivision approval,” according to a county news release. “When the developer failed to complete the required infrastructure in a timely manner, the county looked to Lexon to do the work.” Henderson County filed a claim in Superior Court against Lexon, and the case was heard in August 2011.

County forced to reboot on Talley Drive grant
Blue Ridge Now - over 4 years
FLETCHER — After four years of seeking funds and severing red tape, county officials thought they were finally ready to move forward with an $850,000 block grant project to replace or rehabilitate five homes on Talley Drive in the Brickton community. Since the grant was applied for, however, public backlash from an attempted annexation of the community by Fletcher in 2008 and concerns about private property infringement have created a roadblock for officials hoping to improve the neighborhood. County planners told the Board of Commissioners this week that the county will have to forsake about $290,000 of the grant because Talley Drive neighbors now oppose parts of the Community Development Block Grant project they once embraced. The about-face means the county can't use the grant funds to fix drainage issues, or to install pavement, curbs, gutters and a sidewalk along Talley Drive as planned. It also means only two older homes will be demolished and replaced, rather than four. ...

County came out $2.5 million ahead last fiscal year
Blue Ridge Now - over 4 years
Henderson County was able to grow its reserves by $2.5 million in the last fiscal year, thanks to better-than-expected revenues and conservative budgeting by department heads, county commissioners heard Monday. In a budget report card to the Board of Commissioners, Finance Director Carey McLelland said every county department came in under budget for the fiscal year that ended June 30, for a total savings of $5.2 million dollars in operating costs. "Basically, we had about a 6.8 percent savings in the operational costs of county government," said County Manager Steve Wyatt. On top of that, revenues in 2011-12 came in $2.2 million over budget, thanks in large part to $862,847 in unexpected sales tax growth. Commissioners had appropriated $4.9 million from the county's fund balance for fiscal year 2011-12. On Monday, McLelland said the revenue gains, combined with operational savings, mean the county is expected to grow its general fund balance to $26.8 million, or 25 percent ...

County looking at possible purchase of Christian school property
Blue Ridge Now - over 4 years
County officials confirmed Wednesday they are looking at the possibility of purchasing the former Hendersonville Christian School property on South Grove Street for recreational purposes, although the price would have to be right. Chairman Tommy Thompson said the Board of Commissioners does "have some interest" in the 9.45-acre property that includes three school buildings totaling 28,000 square feet, a large gymnasium suitable for adult basketball games and an athletic field big enough to accommodate adult or youth soccer competitions. "If it should become a reality, it would fill a great need for the county," Thompson said, emphasizing that all five commissioners would have to agree on pursuing the school property. "You could have soccer fields, you could have adult basketball, you've got classrooms that could be used for recreational or community uses." However, Thompson said commissioners' first duty is to be "good stewards of our tax dollars. If we purchase it, we have to m ...

Commissioners approve land code changes
Blue Ridge Now - over 4 years
Things will get a little easier for builders working in Henderson County after a series of changes to the Land Development Code were approved by commissioners Wednesday. The Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a series of text amendments designed to lower building costs, provide greater flexibility with project designs and generally make the county more business-friendly. The amendments were recommended by the county's Planning Board and drafted with the help of developers and the public. “My reading of these (code changes) is that they're either neutral, or they increase the freedom and ability of developers and builders to use their property as they see fit,” said Vice Chairman Bill O'Connor. “And I think that's exactly what we need more of.” The changes were mostly minor in nature. One amendment relaxed the minimum number of parking spots required for multi-family dwellings and industries, while another extended by 30 days the time the county can take to hear soil ...

Courthouse security beefed up, renovations planned
Blue Ridge Now - over 4 years
Increased security and renovations are planned for the Henderson County courthouse, a sign of the changing times and the need to update seating in the building after 17 years of graffiti and vandalism, officials said. Henderson County Sheriff Charlie McDonald said he's been looking at making changes to security at the 1995 courthouse since he took office. “The changes have been implemented as a result of the times we live in,” he said. “As sheriff, I had some concerns that necessitated updating our security protocols and procedures. I consulted the clerk of court and the county commissioners and was assured that they were all on board when it comes to ensuring the safety and the welfare of the citizens who come to our courthouse.” Metal detectors have been moved from upstairs in front of the courtrooms to the main entrance downstairs, which is now the only entrance for the general public. The north and south entrances are only for city employees and those who require handicap ...

County studies financing options for Boyd property next to HHS
Blue Ridge Now - over 4 years
The Henderson County Board of Commissioners agreed Tuesday to begin looking at financing options for purchasing the Boyd Automotive property adjacent to Hendersonville High, while also agreeing to lease back the property for 18 months. In February 2011, the board agreed to purchase the property for $2.75 million at a time chosen by property owner L.C. Boyd Jr., but “in not less than 18 months from Aug. 22, 2012.” Recently, Boyd approached the county about closing on the deal earlier. “He wanted us to buy the property at the agreed-upon price now, go ahead and close now, then he would lease back the property to us - essentially rent the property - until he was able to occupy and construct his new dealership,” said County Manager Steve Wyatt. After consulting with Tax Assessor Stan Duncan and Assistant County Manager David Whitson, the board agreed that $10,000 per month was a fair price to lease the property back to Boyd. Vice Chairman Bill O'Connor proposed a higher amount to av ...

County files class-action lawsuit against Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac
Blue Ridge Now - over 4 years
Henderson County filed a class-action lawsuit challenging Fannie Mae's and Freddie Mac's refusal to pay real estate excise taxes in Henderson County, Commissioner Chair Tommy Thompson and County Manager Steve Wyatt said Wednesday. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, once federal agencies, are now publicly traded private corporations. They are not entitled to any excise tax exemption granted to governmental agencies, according to the lawsuit. Article 8E of Chapter 105 of the N.C. General Statutes imposes an excise tax on the recordation of land conveyance instruments of $1 per $500 of value of land conveyed. The "deed stamps" on instruments of land conveyance are familiar to anyone who has reviewed a North Carolina deed, the county said in a news release. "By not paying the excise tax imposed on the recordation of real estate transfers, Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac are effectively shifting costs from themselves and onto the citizens of Henderson County. As private corporations, they are ...

The Henderson County Board of Commissioners Monday named Apple Festival Executive Director David Nicholson chairman of the new Henderson Tourism Development Authority. Nichsolson was one of four people appointed to the authority, which takes effect Sept. 1, during the commissioners' meeting.

Smith will serve an initial five-year term, Nicholson four years and Rogers and Pope three years each. All seats will be five-year terms thereafter.

County ABC Board weighs benefits of merger with other boards
Blue Ridge Now - over 4 years
Members of the new Henderson County Alcoholic Beverage Control Board will spend the next few weeks considering the possibility of a merger between one, some or all three of the municipality ABC boards in the county. That is one of the options facing the county ABC board, a state ABC Commission official told the board during its first meeting Wednesday in the Community Room of the Historic Courthouse. The other two choices for the board are to disband on the grounds that there are enough ABC stores already operating in the county, or to decide to open an ABC store and establish another ABC board to run it. “That, to me, would be the least advantageous choice for the county as a whole for obvious reasons — duplication of overhead being the obvious one,” said Laurie Lee, ABC board auditor and director of pricing for the N.C. ABC Commission. Currently, there are two Hendersonville ABC stores — with a third on the way on Upward Road — one Fletcher store and one Laurel Park store. A ...

Mills River wants more say in alcohol, ABC decisions
Blue Ridge Now - over 4 years
MILLS RIVER - The town of Mills River should have a say in whether or not ABC stores are placed within the municipality's borders, and there should also be profit sharing involved, council members said during a meeting Thursday. The council instructed Town Manager Jaime Laughter to talk with the county about the possibility of entering into an agreement on the matter, after Laughter told them that as it stands now, the new Henderson County ABC Board does not need the town's approval to build an ABC store in town limits. Laughter said the board does not have to give the town any tax proceeds from alcohol sales. Laughter updated the council on ABC permit rules and tax revenue regulations, which were discussed during a recent Local Government Committee for Cooperative Action meeting. "(Henderson County Manager) Steve (Wyatt) said the county probably would not pursue (putting a store in Mills River) if the town didn't want it," she said, adding that it was unknown exactly what th ...

Flat Rock seeks solution for animal control
Blue Ridge Now - over 4 years
FLAT ROCK — Council members are continuing to look at options for handling animal control issues after losing service from the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office in October. A Henderson County ordinance was changed last year, with Flat Rock approval, to make animal control the responsibility of each municipality and not the Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office still responds to emergency animal enforcement calls that impact public safety, said County Manager Steve Wyatt. Calls about issues such as nuisance or stray animals, however, are handled by the towns and the city of Hendersonville. Fletcher, Laurel Park and Hendersonville have police departments to handle the calls, and Mills River contracts with the Sheriff’s Office for law enforcement and animal control service, Wyatt said. Flat Rock does not have a police department. Vice Mayor Nick Weedman said the cost for animal control service from the Sheriff’s Office would be around $10,725 a year. City and town ...

Playhouse, other nonprofits continue to follow county rules

County policy requires Flat Rock Playhouse to meet performance goals and keep open financial books just like any other Henderson County-funded nonprofit, Henderson County commissioners were told Wednesday. The Board of Commissioners' decision to grant the Playhouse's one-time request of $100,000 for the 2012-13 budget cycle has stirred debate in the community about the whether an entertainment-based entity should be given such an appropriation from the county during tough economic times. The $100,000 represents the third-largest funding total of the more than two dozen nonprofits to which the county provides financial assistance — behind only the Partnership for Economic Development ($250,000) and the agri-business economic development program ($120,000). During their meeting Wednesday, commissioners voted to retain the performance agreement between the county and all the nonprofits it funds, which requires each nonprofit to submit six-month and yearly performance reports, mai ...

County, CPPI may have reached agreement
Blue Ridge Now - over 4 years
Henderson County officials appear to have worked out an agreement with Community Partnership for Pets Inc. that would allow the nonprofit to utiltize an additional $50,000 allocated to the county’s Animal Services budget for CPPI’s spay/neuter programs. CPPI co-founders Mike and Mary Cervini had requested $86,000 in funding from county commissioners for the 2012-13 budget, saying it was the first time they had asked the county for any money during their seven years, during which CPPI has provided nearly 9,000 animal surgeries. Following a strong showing of support for CPPI during the public comments portion of their June 4 meeting, commissioners agreed to increase the county Animal Shelter’s budget by $50,000 for spay/neuter services. The Cervinis were upset, however, when they were told by County Manager Steve Wyatt that the money had not been specifically allocated to CPPI, and that his staff was working with Animal Shelter Director Brad Rayfield to determine how to get the high ...
