CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
Charlotte City Council members heard the first of many presentations regarding the proposed $1.9 billion budget proposed for the next fiscal year beginning in July.
New City Manager Ron Carlee, who took over in April, presented his budget draft Monday evening. Carlee directed $816 million of the plan to go directly to a capital improvement.
"I think this is a sound budget. I think it's a balanced budget," Carlee said.
According to the proposed budget, some of the capital improvement plans include new roads, sidewalks, and affordable housing. Something notably missing is the streetcar proposal that caused deep divisions between council members.
Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx has pushed for a streetcar that would run from West to East Charlotte for over a year, but ultimately, Carlee took the idea out of his budget.
"We planned for that. We wanted that to happen. Everybody is so excited and now it's not going to happen," said West Charlotte resident Dianne Jackson.
Carlee's capital investment plan calls for a property tax increase of 7.25 percent. That means someone who owns a house valued at $200,000 will pay around $63 more a year.
Carlee says the proposed property tax increase would pay for additional investments in public safety - police and fire stations; road and other infrastructure, plus neighborhood development.
City officials will hear directly from the public next Monday, May 13.
