You are so right, but we are paying for the sins of years ago when a few money people controlled what did and did not locate in CC. Did you know that this is a fact... Years ago, a company called JONES APPAREL looked at CC first and the economic director for the county at the time told CC not to fool with them, that they had a bad history.. so the CC folks turned them down and low and behold, the economic director, who was a South Hill resident, all the sudden helped them get established in HIS town. I will tell you this, our current Economic Chief, Ms. Kellett, is not a fan of CC and has made it known to many folks, so don't look for her to help any time soon...

It's truly sad to say but Mecklenburg County is truly a nightmare for someone who wants to locate a business in it.
Dealing with the lunacy from the Board of Supervisors to the shear insanity of the Zoning Department stops many from even thinking about locating in the county.
Then, add in all the nonsense from the illustrious IDA's, and I use that term sarcastically, and it just makes matters worse.
They should have signs on the highways, "Leaving the USA and Entering Mecklenburg County".

you are all correct in that c.c. is not a place that welcomes any new business or ideas.it is only a matter of time before the town loses all of its resorces and funding for any projects ie:fire dept,rescue etc...there has got to be a change in the guard.the first one to go should be the town manager.he has done nothing to promote growth in the town all while drawing a fat paycheck from the taxpayers wallets.the board of supervisors is a complete joke and could care less what happens to its citizens.i have refrained from using any foul language and unsavory comments so i hope the nazi moderator while not pull down my post as he or she does on a regular basis.

Man, I really hate to say it but you all are right. It seems some folks in CC are happy to just let the ship go down. It will be interesting to see how they (council) handle the budget this year. I'd like to see citizens go to the budget meetings and see if they cut uneeded items from the budget or just keep on bleeding the town. It's our right and our money they are spending. dang it I'm going. At least I can look the town manager in his eye and ask why Swanson Younger gets a uniform allowance and don't even wear one!
