Capital Improvements Die as Council Passes Budget

Good afternoon, perhaps you're reading this email with the windows open on this gorgeous summer day!  This is Maureen O'Boyle in the WBTV newsroom with a look at some of the stories we're covering for you at five.

Charlotte city council passes a budget that means you won't see some road improvement projects, street car extension, or some neighborhood revitalization plans in the next fiscal year.  And that has one council member declaring we're moving backwards as a city. We'll tell you what this budget means for your family at 5:00.

We're tracking Tropical Storm Debby as it moves east at a snail's pace dumping more than twenty inches of rain in some parts of Florida!  We're enjoying nice weather today but it's going to be a very different story by the week's end.  Eric Thomas will have the details in your First Alert Forecast!

Neighbors are worried about kids falling into culvert and they turn to See Click Fix for help! The city came into the neighborhood years ago to fix a problem, but one neighborhood watch group told us they never finished it and now kids are at risk.  Details at five!

Hope you'll join Paul Cameron, Eric Thomas and me for WBTV News at 5:00!
