  1. Mint Hill bought their own communication tower for a cool $1Million – and then sold it for $500K when they decided it was too costly to operate That town’s commissioners need to be replaced come this election!!!!!!!! New blood is needed to keep that town moving forward in the 21st century without sucking the residents dry with useless projects.

    The smaller the town, the deeper the secrets.

  2. When will the people of Mint Hill will wake up. As Jerome says the town purchase the tower for 1 million, spent a a lot of money for upkeep and mind you it was purchase for that reason to have Pineville be the dispatch center (which they were for some time). For some reason Chief Ledford decided to switch to Matthews after taking office, then the illustrious town magnaer sold the tower for a cool $300,000.00 to the city of Charlotte and NOW they are going back to Pineville for dispatch to save money what a joke they are moving back to Pineville because Matthews does not want anything to do with Ledford and his staff. Moreover now that they are going back to Pineville dispatch they will have to pay rent to Charlotte for the use of the tower and thus not saving money as they claim. When will they stop lying to the public and the tax paying people of Mint Hill.

  3. The times needs to do some investigative reporting on the Mint Hill police department. Since Tim Ledford took over there has been around a 75% turn over of employees. Since February they have lost five officers, four of which were veteran officers. This is the equivalent of one full squad. Several more veteran officers are looking to leave as well. The reputation of the department is terrible. For all intents and purposes Mint Hills SRT team is dead. They are only hiring rookie officers, one of the last that was hired wasn’t even recommended by the hiring review board to be hired and was in such poor physical shape that is was questionable that he could even fulfill the job requirements. But as far as Mint Hill cares he is a warm body. The loss of veteran officers that has and is still occurring affects the safety and well being of the citizens and the community. The officers who left cared about the community and took pride in their jobs but could no longer deal with the poor treatment they received or the poor management of the department. The citizens need to wake up. Town Hall and Chief Ledford are killing your police department.

  4. Thank you for one more informative website. The site more might I get that form of details coded in this sort of perfect tactic? I own a venture that i’m at the moment running for, and I’ve recently been within the be aware of this sort of information.
