It could be revealed Monday who will get the money from the sale of the Afro-American Cultural Center's building.
Charlotte city leaders sold the uptown building for $590,000. Most council members voted to give the money to the cultural center's new home, the Harvey B. Gantt Center, near the Charlotte Convention Center.
Then Mayor Pat McCrory vetoed the vote. He said the money should go to city construction projects.
Eyewitness News spoke with people visiting the cultural center. One woman, who didn't want to give her name, said the city should spend the money on what both sides want.
"Everything shouldn't go to one pot. It should just be distributed evenly so that everybody gets some, you know,” she said.
Council plans to revote Monday.
Eyewitness News did some digging to find out if there was more to the overall story.
Councilman Michael Barnes, a Democrat, said he believes this was a Republican ploy. He said Republicans voted against the Gantt Center so their mayoral candidate, John Lassiter, could vote for it and look more sensitive to African-Americans.
Lassiter said, "The suggestion that there is political posturing is patently false."
