Last night, a motion asking for a brand new dam at Ragged Mountain passed in the Charlottesville City Council meeting.

Last night’s vote seems to have caught the Mayor by surprise, and he reacts to the breaking news in today’s conversation. What does last night’s decision truly mean for the future of water in Charlottesville? Find out, here.

12.14.10 Mayor of the City of Charlottesville Dave Norris joins Coy to discuss all things water supply. This interview marks the first time in which Mayor Norris has had the opportunity to respond to Albemarle County’s recent letter to the DEQ saying they see no room for compromise on the 50-year water supply plan. Norris expresses his views on the needs for both city and county, and he also takes stock of the current situation. The ability to phase in the new approach is the question facing the Mayor’s ideas for renovation, but he feels the balance of low cost and low environmental impact should be enough reason to continue studying a better way.
