Budget workshop - April 11

On April 11, Charlotte City Council held the third and final scheduled budget workshop for fiscal year 2019. Three major things came out of the discussions:
  • Potential rate increases for Charlotte Water, Storm Water Services and Solid Waste Services to continue existing service levels and meet the demands of a growing city.
  • Re-evaluating some previously planned large capital projects to ensure our infrastructure projects align to current community needs.
  • Continue support for community organizations who provide services that support the city’s goals and objectives such as housing programs and after school programs.
