Does this mean we don't have to have Bele Chere anymore?

Does that mean we'll get to save her salary and get a tax break?

Hi Local, this is Asheville, so I don't think we'll get any kind of a tax break or any other break. They'll hire someone else, and probably pay them more.

I love Bele Chere and I'm sure it is not going away ... but then again I'm a fun guy and like to party ... the rest of you should stay home and avoid the big post Bele Chere party at my place.

I'm right there with you on that one. I am bored to tears with Bele Chere and the mess it brings.

It's a burden on the taxpayers, and the type of people it attracts is just disgusting, nasty, stinking, tattoed, purple-headed wierdos.

Nothing personal, but the city does not need a staff member with the job of pizzing away the hard earned tax dollars stripped from the wallets of property owners.

It is NOT the job of city council to 'entertain' me or anyone else. They are charged with providing basic services, maintaining the infrastructure, and nothing else.

To "spend more time with family" is always code for something else. Was there a power struggle? Maybe she and the city council had an unresolvable issue. Could she have said she wanted more money and they refused? Oh, that would never happen, city council doesn't care about money. Its only tax money, and they can always raise more of those.
