CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - City Counsel will meet Monday afternoon to talk about raising revenue, specifically, pushing the property tax higher in 2014.
It's an early Christmas gift few are excited about.
The Charlotte City Council will meet Monday morning to discuss a possible property tax increase on area homeowners.
The idea may not sit well with some.
In 2011, during a revaluation, the Council came under fire after many property owners balked at their new tax rate, claiming their homes were way overvalued.
There were meetings with homeowners to vent their frustrations. Just last week, it was announced that some people may be getting a refund because they were charged a rate higher than what their houses were worth.
Now, homeowners may feel a sense of deja vu with a new round of possible tax increases.
Also on the table, will be discussions of who should temporarily take over the City Manager's position.
Current Manager Curt Walton is set to retire next month, and leaders are looking for his replacement.
So far, the city has spent $24,000 in the search for a new City Manager.
