A Senate vote on a bill requiring Durham to extend water and sewer lines to a residential and commercial development called 751 South has been put off for more than a week. The bill keeps showing up on the Senate calendar, then pushed off for a day. Day after day. The bill requires the extension of utility lines to the proposed development near the Chatham County line against the wishes of the Durham City Council.
Senate Rules Chairman Tom Apodaca said the Senate will vote before the session ends. The word is that the Senate is waiting for the House to send over a bill on Jordan Lake rules.
