CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Mecklenburg County said it will issue up to $300 million for school bond projects over the next three years, but there are new concerns a battle might be brewing.The Charlotte Mecklenburg School Board and County Commissioners could be at odds on where to spend the money.The school district will have to share the money to get a list of 18 projects done.Central Piedmont Community College will get some of the money as well.CMS’ main priority will be to replace and renovate schools.The goal is to relieve overcrowding mainly in elementary and middle schools.With a scaled back plan, board members are worries the county will cut it back even more, leaving them with a plan based on money and not the needs of the children.“The concern is that we factor in children. They just factor in people,” said CMS Board Chairwoman Mary McCray.While the members of the school board have 18 projects they would like to get done, they know it’s likely the county will pay for all of them.The process is based on the board of county commissioners’ priority.
