City Council set to meet on Thursday
The Lincolnton City Council will conduct its regular monthly meeting 7 p.m. Thursday at City Hall.
On the agenda for the meeting are:
- A public hearing on a proposed amendment to the city’s Unified Development Ordinance that would allow motorcycle sales as a permitted use in the central-business district will be conducted.
- A request for authorization to engage engineering services for proposed intersection improvements at East Main Street and Generals Boulevard will be weighed.
- Council members will consider a $10,000 fireworks contract with East Coast Pyrotechnics for the city’s annual Fourth of July celebration.
- Council members will consider a resolution of intent for commitment of matching-grant funds for recycling containers. The match for the city, which began collecting recyclables this month as opposed to contracting the work out due to expected cost savings, will be $75,000.

- Council members will consider a request for official action to set the 2013 municipal election filing fees.
