The biggest story to hit Davidson in years will actually happen in Mooresville on Monday.
"New MI-C agreement would alter towns' formula of risks, rewards"
In a story that was at least partially broken by Vince Winegardner in an email circulated around Davidson on May 12th and posted at DavidsonWatchdogs.org, it appears that Davidson may finally be getting some relief from the ill-conceived financial arrangement on Mi-Connection that puts Davidson deeper in the hole for every customer signed up. If this goes through, Davidson will be freed from at least a portion of the annual subsidy from the Town in the short-term while in effect adding more long-term obligation directly to Mooresville.
Per the Mooresville Tribune article this will be taken up on Monday with discussion Tuesday at the Davidson work session meeting. This year's budget discussions have been extremely quiet so far, and the budget needs to be finalized by the end of June. I would strongly encourage people to attend Tuesday's meeting as this decision on Mi-Connection will have the most profound impact on Davidson's budget of any decision in years.
If this goes through, any Davidson resident who does not currently subscribe to Mi-Connection could consider doing so while knowing they won't actually be making the situation worse for the Town. That's a very good thing.
Update: DavidsonNews.net also has a story on this...
