Charlotte City Council members had a meeting last Monday, October 27 to discuss about giving away incentive packages to companies that would bring hundreds to thousands of job opportunities to Charlotte.
The City Council met in a closed session to discuss about matters related to the location of businesses and industries within Charlotte, along with the potential economic development incentives they’ll be offering.
No company name has been revealed yet to receive such incentives.
