WFAE: Charlotte City Council Public Hearing on Budget

(By Tim Bullock, WFAE)

Monday night was an open mic night of sorts at the Charlotte City Council. It was the public’s chance to have their say on the city manager’s proposed budget. It includes an increase in property taxes and cuts to city services. 

Several groups spoke up on a variety of topics.
