An Important Message
From Mayor Dusch
“Our efforts as a community and as a nation have not yet been enough to bring the return to normalcy we hoped for. COVID-19 will continue to change our daily lives, and unfortunately kill more people, if we do not take steps now to stop the spread. Wear, Wash, Wait…your choices today can make the difference. Please do your part.” –Mayor Dusch
Utility Payment Options
Governor Cooper has informed municipalities and other utility providers that Executive Order 142 will expire July 29, meaning normal utility billing will resume July 30. 

Customers will have at least a six-month period beginning July 30 to pay off unpaid balances that came due between March 31-July 29. Unpaid balances prior to or after this timeframe will be due according to our typical policies. Please contact Customer Care at 704-920-5555 with any questions or concerns regarding payment on your utility account, or if you are having trouble paying your bills. We thank our customers who have remained current or have paid what they are able during this time, and look forward to working with you.

Downtown Traffic Alert
As part of the Cabarrus County Courthouse expansion/renovation project, a stretch of Union Street near the intersection of Means Avenue is closing while crews move and reconnect underground utilities. Short detours will continue through August 28. The full article can be found HERE .

"Although the intersection at Means Ave & Barbrick Ave is shut down due to the courthouse project, Downtown is still open for business! You are still able to pull in and park on Union as needed, there is just no outlet to continue through while that intersection is under construction. Please keep in mind, the two parking decks on each side of the block are open and have plenty of availability. It’s just a short walk from either deck to your favorite business and your ability to park in the deck could assist someone who may need closer accommodations. We’re so excited for the growth and opportunity these new investments in our town will bring! Help us to continue to support local and support each other during this growing season!" - Concord Downtown Development Corporation

A lane on Corban Avenue and Church Street will close on July 27 to create room for construction materials for the new Cabarrus County Courthouse expansion/renovation project. Thru traffic will remain passable in both directions.

2020 Census
This month census takers started to visit the homes of those that haven't yet responded to the 2020 Census. Census takers will wear masks and follow local public health guidelines when they visit your home.

Their goal is to help you and everyone in your home be counted in the 2020 Census. If the census taker who visits your home does not speak your language, you may request a return visit from someone who does.

If you respond online or by phone TODAY, a census taker is less likely to have to visit your home to collect your response. Get started now at  2020Census.Gov
