CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx said once again Wednesday he's backing a $926 million capital improvement plan.

He wants to see new police stations and road improvements.  If approved, it would cost the owner of a $200,000 home around $72 a year in additional property taxes.

"I think if we are going to make a case to them that they need to invest in the city, we need to be confident that the investment will have the impact we say it will," Foxx said Wednesday.

Some Council members says the price tag for capital improvement projects is too high for homeowners dealing with higher property values and the recession and have come up with plans calling for fewer improvements.

Mayor Foxx has called a special meeting for Monday to vote on a budget, which must be approved by June 30.
