NC city kills fee hike idea

There were no angry outbursts. No citizens offered complaints. Not even any discussion was had among commissioners.
When New Castle City Mayor Denny Benham invited commissioners to discuss last month’s proposed amendment to the city’s business license ordinance that would increase fees for certain businesses, there was a prolonged silence.
At its April meeting, the commission proposed increasing the city’s business license fee to $50 annually, an increase of $15 for most businesses.
