Water Line Valve Replacement Scheduled

Mayodan Public Utilities Department is planning water line valve replacement work for Wednesday, August 2, 2017 on Main Street in the Downtown area. The work has been scheduled to take place at night to avoid cutting water to the businesses during regular business hours on Main Street and 2nd Ave. The work is scheduled to begin at 11:00 PM and will finish before 5:00 AM. Affected customers are being contacted, but due to the nature of the work, it is possible that water service will be disrupted for customers along Main Street from 4th Ave to 1st Ave. and customers along 2nd Ave. from Adams to Jefferson Streets. Customers on East Adams may also be affected. We recommend that you run cold water through an outside faucet or bath tub for a few minutes to clear any dingy water from the lines Thursday morning.

We regret the inconvenience this may cause, but the work is necessary and is part of our ongoing efforts to improve and replace our water infrastructure throughout Mayodan.

Please be careful driving downtown Wednesday night, there may be temporary road closures as the work takes place.

2016 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

Fiscal Year 2017-18 Budget Adopted by Town Council

June 21, 2017
RE: Fiscal Year 2017-18 Budget Adoption

The Town Council of the Town of Mayodan adopted the Fiscal Year 2017-18 budget ordinance during their regularly scheduled monthly meeting held Monday, June 12.

The manager’s budget was presented to the Council May 26, 2017 and made available to the public. The adopted budget is posted on the Town’s website and social media sites, a copy is available at Town Hall, and official notice of the public hearing was published in the News and Record.

After the public hearing held June 12, at which no one spoke for or against the budget, the Town Council voted 3-1 to approve the budget as presented.

The adopted budget includes a property tax rate of $0.63 per $100 of valuation, which is unchanged from last year. In addition, the solid waste fee remains unchanged from last year at $12 per month residential household, $24 per commercial account. The adopted budget includes a 5% water and sewer rate increase. This increase is equal to 0.22 cents per thousand gallons of usage. This rate change will apply to all billing cycles after July 1, 2017.

For in-town customers the new rate per 1,000 gallons of usage (water or sewer) is $4.56. The minimum bill for two months will increase $1.62 to $31.92 for water and sewer. Out-of-town customers pay double the rate of in-town customers.

Questions regarding the adopted budget may be directed to Michael Brandt, Town Manager at (336) 427-0241.

Proposed FY 2018 Budget Available For Review

The Town Manager’s Fiscal Year 2018 budget has been submitted to the Mayor and Town Council.  A copy is available here for review and downloading; there is also a copy available at Town Hall for public inspection.

The proposed budget keeps the property tax rate steady at $0.63 per one hundred dollars of valuation. An owner of a property valued at $100,000 will pay $630 in property taxes, the same as last year.

Solid waste and recycling fees will remain $12.00 per month for residential customers and $24 month for commercial customers.

Due to increasing costs of production and capital maintenance of the water and sewer infrastructure the budget recommends a modest 5% increase in water and sewer fees. The new rate per 1,000 gallons of usage (water or sewer) will be $4.56 or 22-cents more than the current rate. The minimum bill for 3,500 gallons of water and 3,500 gallons sewer will be $31.92, or $1.54 more per billing cycle. Out-of-town customer rates will be double the in-town rate. If adopted, the new rates will be effective July 1, 2017.

A Public Hearing on the budget will be held at next regular Town Council Meeting scheduled for:
June 12, 7:00 pm
Mayodan Town Council Chambers
James A. Collins Municipal Building (Town Hall)

210 West Main Street
Mayodan, NC 27027

Portion of I-73 to Open Friday

News Release
For Immediate Release

Section of I-73 Opens Friday, May 19.
Portion of Future Interstate 73 Opening to Drivers in Guilford County
GREENSBORO – North Carolina Department of Transportation Secretary Jim Trogdon announced today that a section of the Future Interstate 73 from N.C. 68 to U.S. 220 will open to traffic within the next 48 hours.

“The conception, execution and delivery of this project speaks to the Division and MPO’s evolving partnership that continues to make transportation better for the citizens of this region,” said Secretary Trogdon.

The new 6-mile section of highway will allow traffic to travel on two lanes in each direction at 65 mph. The absence of stoplights and intersections improves travel time and safety by eliminating possible collision points in this heavily traveled area of Guilford County.

“This section of the project increases the potential for economic development by improving connections to Oak Ridge, Summerfield, Colfax and all points north through Guilford and western Rockingham counties,” said Division 7 Engineer Mike Mills.

The new section of Future I-73 will open at noon on Friday, May 19, weather permitting. An official ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held in June.

Trogdon made the announcement at a meeting of the Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization this afternoon after touring the project site and meeting with Division 7 staff.

Transportation officials ask drivers to proceed with caution, as crews will be on the roadside removing barricades and uncovering directional signs after the highway opens.
