Do Charlotte City Council Members Need Assistants?

Being on the Charlotte City Council is a part-time job, but some council members say there is plenty of work to be done.
The council voted last month to let City Manager Marcus Jones look for ways to give the council more support staff.
Right now, there are four paid staff members who assist all 11 city council members, so the city would need to hire another 7 people to give each council member an assistant.
The city manager is set to present his recommendations later this summer.
