Mick McCardle was appointed to a full three-year term on the board of the Tuckaseigee Water and Sewer Authority last Thursday at the Sylva town board meeting.

McCardle joined the board late last year when the town board voted to remove former Mayor Brenda Oliver, who was two years into a three-year term, and appoint him.

Sylva lawyer Jeff Goss was appointed at the same time to take the seat of Harold Hensley, who had reached his limit of three three-year terms.

At the time, board members expressed a need for business owners, specifically restaurateurs, on the TWSA board. Key issues cited by board members and Sylva Mayor Lynda Sossamon are allocation fees new restaurant owners face and the possible relocation of businesses due to road construction along the N.C. 107 corridor.

McCardle owns Lulu’s on Main in downtown Sylva.
