CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV)- If you live in Charlotte, there's a pretty good chance your taxes are going up. In a preliminary vote Wednesday afternoon, council members voted Nine-to-two for a new budget.
Tax increases don't normally happen when folks are running for reelection, but that didn't stop some council members from taking a big chance. The package of more than 800 Million dollars buys new streets and sidewalks.
It also pays for new affordable housing initiatives, and this funding plan allows the next eight years allows Bojangles Arena to be up-fitted as well.
But will voters take it out on incumbent council members this fall? Some council members say they're not overly concerned.
