Meck mayors support bond

WFAE reports Mint Hill, Matthews, and Pineville mayors are urging support for the November bond. Green space is the issue, according to Matthews mayor Lee Myers. The money from the bond will help towns preserve land for parks, ball fields and natural areas.

Mint Hill has mucho green space, but keeping it is another story. Mecklenburg County has two pieces of land for planned parks in or close to Mint Hill. One is the Ezell Farm property located at the corner of Matthews-Mint Hill Road and Mintwood Drive. The other is a planned natural area near I-485.

County employees could shift to 4-day work week

WSOC-TV is reporting Mecklenburg County Commissioner Dan Ramirez will propose at Tuesday’s meeting the board study a plan calling for county employees to work 4-day work weeks. Some employees would work Monday-Thursday, and the rest will work Tuesday- Friday. Sounds like a pretty good idea…

The state of Utah is shifting to a 4-day work week for most state employees. The savings are estimated to be $3 milllion a year in energy costs.
