RoMo Cop has returned from down under and plans a community feel good meeting tonight.
The Charlotte Observer is reporting that Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Chief Rodney Monroe and City Council member Susan Burgess will lead a community meeting tonight at the Charlotte Mecklenburg Government Center in the uptown area.
The meeting will be from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in Room 267. The Government Center is at 600 East Fourth Street, with parking available in the deck along Davidson Street.
Tonight's meeting will focus on public safety, including updates on the three safety-related issues that ranked the highest among the public in a 2008 citizen survey -- burglary, drugs, gangs. In addition, there will be a discussion on the impact of federal stimulus money on the police department.
There also will be a question-and-answer session with Monroe and other police administrators.
This should be good as Susan Burgess has not been a supporter of RoMo in the past.
Burgess has never been one to hold back, so either RoMo is being set up or Burgess is doing a little one-up on her fellow council members.
CP thinks this is just showmanship, Burgess will stand side by side with RoMo while fellow council members are sprinting to Charleston or Hendersonville for the weekend.
