Message from the Mayor

Hello good citizens,

Hope all has been well with you and your families this tumultuous springtime of the year. I pray that your blessings are abundant throughout the year.

This month's message is a continuation and reminder of a matter that you might have already been privy to up to this point. If not, you can consider this notification of the matter referenced.

The subject is the Public Comment Period associated with the adoption of a new System Development Fee Ordinance as required by the State of North Carolina. This matter involves specific water and sewer fees for those that want to connect to the city's water and sewer system.

System Development Fees are one-time charges assessed to NEW WATER and/or WASTEWATER (sewer) customers, developers or builders, to recover a proportional share of capital costs incurred by the City of Mount Holly to provide availability and capacity for NEW CUSTOMERS.

This does not apply to existing customers. This doesn't involve your current water and sewer rate on your bill.

The State of North Carolina requires that cities and counties that have or wishes to charge such fees adopt an Ordinance to do so. The City of Mount Holly has hired a Consultant to help with drafting the required Ordinance.

State Law also requires that before the City Council can adopt the new Ordinance the document has to be place on the City's Website for the purpose of allowing a forty-five (45) day Public Comment Period.

If you are interested in more information about the aforementioned matter please go to the City's Website at www.mtholly.us.

A Public Hearing to consider adoption of the required Ordinance will be held on Monday, June 11, 2018 at 7:00pm in the City Council
Chambers, located at 400 East Central Avenue.

Thank you as always for the opportunity to make you aware of things that are going on with the City of Mount Holly.

Have a great month of May.
Danny Jackson, City Manager

Utilities Connection

Prevent Stormwater Runoff Pollution

Every time it rains, storm water is carried directly to our surface waters. That means that storm water pollution can have detrimental effects to our creeks, ponds, and the Catawba River into which it drains. Storm water can carry sediment, trash, automotive fluids like used oil and antifreeze, grass clippings, leaves, yard waste, excess fertilizers, animal waste, pesticides and anything else that gets in its way.

  • Never dump anything down a storm drain or in ditches or creeks.
  • Take used oil, paint and other household hazardous waste to recycling centers.
  • Use fertilizers sparingly and sweep up driveways, sidewalks, and gutters
  • Redirect roof gutters to lawns, natural areas or rain gardens.
  • Take your car to a car wash instead of washing it on the driveway. 
  • Sweep up yard debris instead of washing it away.
  • Use a compost bin to turn yard waste into a useful gardening product.
  • Replant bare areas to avoid soil erosion.
  • Report spills, dumping or suspected water pollution to 704-827-3931
  • Clear clogged storm drains. Blocked drains cause drainage problems.
