When the Utilities Commission was created in 1941 by the North Carolina General Assembly, it had three members. Membership increased to five in 1949, and in 1975, the General Assembly increased it to seven. The increase made North Carolina's Commission one of the largest in the country. This article provides a brief biographical sketch of the members.
The Chatham County Commissioners have voted to allow the Western Wake Partners (WWP) to build an 8.1-mile underground pipeline though the county. In exchange, WWP offered $500,000 for a youth center, agreed to support legislation preventing the company from involuntarily annexing properties in Chatham County, and free pipeline use for residents in the future. Not all were happy with the deal as Democrats were excluded from the process and many felt a better deal could have been made.
