City Council to hear water report, reprecincting scenarios

It’s back to the grind for city elected officials. Tonight, City Council will hear a report from Black & Veatch about the revised report the firm submitted to the City of Charlottesville on the cost of modifying the Lower Ragged Mountain Dam. The report was hailed by Mayor Dave Norris to be a “breakthrough” in the controversial water supply plan debate. (Click here for some background on the debate).

In addition, Council will also hear a report on the possible amendment of the city’s voting precincts. According to a staff report, registered voters in Charlottesville have grown by 10,036 voters in 11 years and some precincts have outgrown their legal limit. One precinct, Alumni Hall, is not contiguous, which is legally required.
