CHARLOTTE, N.C. — City officials say the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center will be closed to the public beginning Thursday, August 19th as a result of rising COVID-19 cases in Mecklenburg County.
Officials say this closure applies to all public meetings held by the Charlotte City Council, Mecklenburg County Board of County Commissioners, and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Board of Education.
The public is still invited to participate in these meetings virtually by signing up with each elected body’s Clerk’s Office.
