Water and Sewer Advisory Council
A Water and Sewer Advisory Council is a requirement of the 2002 Mud Creek Sewer District Purchase and Interlocal Cooperation and Settlement Agreement with Henderson County. Because the previous Council had not met since 2004, the Water and Sewer Advisory Council was reformed in 2017 by the City of Hendersonville City Council to seek the advice and recommendations and to involve the business community in decisions that affect them to help prevent unintended consequences from decisions made by the Council. The City of Hendersonville retains authority over how the system grows but seeks input from other entities.
The membership consists of 11 members of the following:
One (1) sitting member of the Hendersonville City Council or alternate
One (1) City of Hendersonville utility customer appointed by the Hendersonville City Council.
One (1) sitting member of the Henderson County Board of Commissioners or alternate
