Please help us stop the spread of COVD-19 and COVD-19 rumors! The City is following the directives issued by the N.C. Governor. We ask that you do too! If you have concerns or questions about closings or safety, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 704-878-3586. (The video about the City closing grocery stores and gas stations is false.)
The State of Emergency declared by Mayor Costi Kutteh earlier this week gives the City some limited authority. The intent of the declaration is to give the City Manager authority to make some decisions without having to convene City Council (i.e., halting disconnections of utility services until further notice).
“At this time, we are following the directives issued by the Governor and feel the measures taken so far are appropriate.” said Kutteh. “If there are concerns or questions about closings or safety, please contact the City directly to have those answered with the most up-to-date information.”
