The Fayetteville City Council tonight will consider:

  • Creating a housing coordinator job following the decision earlier this month to declare a housing crisis in the city. The coordinator would be a liaison to community organizations and residents on housing matters, and would address housing challenges. The new position would cost the city $90,000, which it plans to pay for with American Rescue Plan Act money.
  • Removing the $500 cap on city permit fees for alcohol sales, meaning the city could charge $1,250 for wholesale liquor permits. The city can charge up to half of the state fees for alcohol permits.

If you go: 5:30pm at Fayetteville City Hall or online.
