The Charlotte City Council is scheduled to meet Wednesday to discuss its budget for the upcoming year.
The city is trying to plug a more than $30 million shortfall due to the loss of the Business Privilege License Tax and the countywide property re-valuation.
City Manager Ron Carlee has said the city could enact a wage freeze and a one percent across-the-board cut for all departments. That would shrink the budget gap to about $16 million.
Council members are scheduled to get an update on the status of the general fund at 2 p.m. in Room 267 of the Government Center.
They also will hear budget presentations from the airport and the Charlotte Area Transit System.
