CHARLOTTE, NC (AP/WBTV) -
Pat McCrory did not like a proposal to use property taxes for a streetcar project when he was mayor of Charlotte.
Now Gov. Pat McCrory has told Charlotte officials that a streetcar plan could hurt the city's chances of getting state money to expand its light rail service.
Charlotte needs a state grant of $250 million to extend its light rail system to the University of North Carolina Charlotte.
McCrory met earlier this week with Charlotte City Attorney Bob Hagemann and Deputy City Manager Ron Kimble.
The Charlotte officials say McCrory told them if the streetcar plan using property tax revenue goes forward, the state funding for the light rail extension could be at risk.
Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx says he's "outraged" by what he considers a threat from McCrory.
"It's particularly alarming that he would choose to deliver messages to city staff, particularly messages that contain threats," Foxx said in a statement to WBTV. "Why the governor would choose to place focus on a transit project, particularly one contained in a transit plan that he voted to implement makes no sense."
"It's particularly alarming that he would choose to deliver messages to city staff, particularly messages that contain threats," Foxx told .
N.C. Sen. Malcolm Graham, D-Mecklenburg, released a statement Friday afternoon saying he was apalled at the governor's remarks.
"How can we expect federal and local partners to trust the word of the state? How can private investors who purchased bonds trust the word of the state?", Graham said in his remarks. "How can Northeast residents who support transit trust the word of the state?"
