Montreat Minute for October 11, 2019

Mayor’s Town Council Meeting Summary

Greetings Friends,

We had approximately 20 people at last night’s meeting in addition to Commissioners and staff members. We’re thankful for their participation. Here’s a summary of the meeting highlights. As usual, a full summary is in the official meeting minutes in next month’s agenda packet.

  • Public Forum questions/comments included:
    • Sally Stansil spoke about the high levels of traffic noise on Assembly drive. It has become quite a nuisance at all times of day. She appealed to the Commission to do something to slow down speeders and try to abate noise levels from trucks and other vehicles.

Want to be Bearwise?

Bears are very active at this time of year as they prepare for their winter “sleep”. Come learn how to co-exist safely with our black bear population at a “bearwise” presentation sponsored by the Montreat Landcare Committee and the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission. The presentation will be held on Tuesday, October 22 at 5:00 in Upper Anderson. Among the topics to be discussed is which trails should be avoided during bear hunting season, which begins next week.
