ON THE DIFFICULTY OF A WATER SYSTEM TRANSFER
Jade Dundas, Water Resources Director, City of Asheville:"Issues that would need to be resolved include:
-Transferring the contracts of the department’s 148 employees.
-Nontransferrable federal and state health-and-safety certifications.
-Transferring the financial, accounting and information technology systems.
-Training new employees.
-The city’s water-related bond debt, which is financed by system revenues."
ON THE DIFFICULTY OF A BREWERY TRANSFER
Esther Manheimer, Mayor, City of Asheville: “To me a corporate transfer doesn’t necessarily mean anything about the experience our city will have with this company. It may just mean a change in ownership. It may not mean a change in the employees or the number of employees they plan to hire or their agreements. It may have no implications in terms of their agreements with the city.”
