City of Concord asks residents to report illegal waste dumping
In addition to its residential garbage and recycling collection programs, the City of Concord provides free curbside collection of yard waste and bulky waste for citizens. Bulky waste refers to items too large to fit inside the rollout garbage container, like tires, furniture, appliances, and scrap metal. However, many non-residents are taking advantage of the City’s residential service and turning property owners into victims. Visit concordnc.gov for more information.
 
Concord Radio System completes 800 MHz rebanding
In compliance with federal mandates, the City of Concord is now operating its radio system channels on lower frequencies. All channels were lowered by 15 megahertz (MHz) on Monday, December 12.
 
This rebanding was mandated by the FCC in order to reduce interference between public safety radios and “ESMR” (Nextel) and other non-public safety radio channels. For more information, visit http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Rebanding.
 
Tune in to Metrolina Forum to learn about local charities
One Concord food pantry reports a 25 percent increase in the number of families needing help this year. Another Concord charity is helping seniors who must choose between medicine and nutritious food. As high unemployment lingers, many of our neighbors are facing a crisis and don't always know where their next meal will come from. On the next Metrolina Forum, TV64 sits down with leaders of local charities to learn more about the need and how all of us can help.
 
Wake up early for (or set your DVR to record) Metrolina Forum on TV64 (TWC ch. 2/150/1150) Sunday, December 18 at 5:30 a.m. The show features interviews with Ed Hosack of Cooperative Christian Ministry, Harriet Stafford of Operation Breadbasket, and Kimberly Strong from Cabarrus Meals on Wheels.
