A crowd overflowed the meeting room of the Blowing Rock Town Council to see the future of the American Legion Hall there.  After receiving a grant for part of the project cost and over a year’s discussion, the Council asked the architect a number of questions about the plans, then put forward a motion to bid the project with a number of options on the decking plans. Then Councilman Dan Phillips told of water troubles he recently experienced, and expanded the topic by saying that quite a number of Blowing Rock residents face similar troubles, and pondered that the money could be used to deal with the outdated and possibly unsafe water lines. But in the end, his was the lone dissenting vote, and the project will now go to bid.  With those returned, the council will weigh the budget for the project against the bids and take final action.
