Hatley also cited Lincolnton’s several new eating and social establishments for residents and visitors. A new Jersey Mike’s submarine sandwich restaurant is slated to open within a week, as he pointed out.
“Our business incentive grants continue to help existing merchants and help recruit new businesses,” said Hatley, looking to ’19 and continuing, with regard to the City of Lincolnton, “We are going to implement an automatic pay review on a rotating basis for our employees. We would like to restart a recycling program for our city. We hope construction will begin on our downtown condo project. We will finish the design and hopefully the renovation of our new police department. And we look forward to welcoming our first brewery in 2019.”
Positioned within relatively easy reach of Charlotte, Lincolnton is possessed of many advantages.
“Our biggest is our people,” the mayor said. “The citizens of Lincolnton are hard-working, diverse and welcoming. Our people are, by far, our greatest asset. We haven’t raised taxes in years. Our people are ready for growth but a controlled growth.
“We want to always improve and be innovative,” Hatley added. “But we don’t want to lose our small-town feeling. Lincolnton is our county seat, and the courthouse has always been the centerpiece of our city. The city council can only hope the county commissioners will join with us in our endeavor to leave the courthouse downtown for all our citizens.”
