LINCOLNTON, N.C.––Lincolnton City Councilman and Mayor Pro Tem Martin Eaddy is weighing in on the year ahead.

Eaddy told The Herald recently that he is happy with what the City did in 2018.

“I am proud of the City’s accomplishments this past year,” he said. “Our retail businesses on Main Street continue to expand, and the creation of some establishments of entertainment at night create an environment that makes the community more attractive to potential investors. Growth in the business sector is now spreading to East Main Street and areas surrounding the downtown proper. Our City employees continue to provide exemplary service to our citizens, and we have taken steps to expand and modernize our services in such a way as to maintain a consistent tax rate for over 20 years. We are going to open the new canoe launches and fishing pier at Betty Ross Park in several months.”

Eaddy also talked about the challenges that lie ahead. 

“I see several major challenges for the upcoming year,” he said. “We must continue to work to attract businesses to our city. A vibrant downtown is the lifeblood of any community. I hope we can engage our commissioners in some additional dialogue regarding rebuilding the courthouse in the downtown. If downtown does not flourish, the recruitment of new industries to our county will be more difficult. Hopefully we can be partners in that endeavor to make a re-examination of moving the courthouse possible.

“Finding a way to re-establish a meaningful recycling program is another challenge we must overcome,” Eaddy continued. “Extending the life of our landfill makes economic sense, and modeling being good stewards of the environment is important.”

But the overall big picture is one of optimism, as Eaddy noted.

“I am confident,” he said, “that by all of us working together, we can make 2019 another banner year for our city.”
