Water-sewer extension bill gets second-reading Aye

Bookmark and Share

The state House voted approval 70-47 this afternoon on the second reading of a bill (link below) requiring cities to provide water and sewer service to any area within their urban growth boundaries.

Durham’s urban growth boundary includes the 751 South site. A third reading of the bill, SB 382, a substitute version of a state Senate act originally pertaining to withholding taxes, could come Wednesday.

If SB 382 passes its third reading, it goes to the state Senate for approval in its new form.
