The Union County Board of Commissioners has selected the Morris property on Hemby Road in Weddington for the site of an elevated water tower, and directed Union County Public Works to seek zoning approval from Weddington to build the tower at the location.
On May 6, commissioners asked the Town of Weddington Council to provide feedback by May 20, on whether sites on Hemby Road and Weddington-Matthews Road were acceptable locations for a water tower. The board authorized the county to cease consideration of a site located on Highway 84.
At its May 13 meeting, the Weddington Town Council passed a resolution by a 4 to 0 vote for preliminary endorsement of the Hemby Road site.
Currently, the county has a 60-day option agreement for both the Morris property and the Weddington-Matthews Road property.
