A Message from our Mayor:

"I know many of you are feeling anxiety from the COVID-19 outbreak. The health and well being of our citizens are important and we are taking this threat very seriously. While there have been no reported cases locally this is not the time to be careless. We are keeping up with the latest developments and are prepared to take the appropriate steps needed up to declaring a State of Emergency in the event the virus spreads to that point. We will also be following the Government directives from Washington D. C. and Raleigh as well as working with our County officials. Please be cautious if you need to be out and about and take the necessary steps to protect yourself."

Respectfully yours,
Mayor Gary McClure
