On Thursday, June 18, 2020, the Board of Commissioners unanimously adopted the 2020-2021 fiscal year budget for the Town of Cornelius.

All are welcome to review the approved budget along with the Manager's Recommended FY21 Budget presentation shared with the Board of Commissioners on Monday, June 1.
The annual budget is a funding plan that outlines where revenues will come from and how tax dollars will be spent in a given fiscal year. Each year, the Town is required to adopt a new budget that details sources of revenues and spending authority.

Addressing law enforcement in Cornelius
As citizens of our close-knit community,
we invite you to read a letter from Cornelius Town Manager Andrew Grant regarding the Town's law enforcement policies and procedures.
We also encourage you to review the presentation referenced in the letter and watch the discussion held at the June 15 Board of Commissioners meeting. (The discussion begins at the 22:00 mark)
"I have worked for the Town of Cornelius for 17 years, and I know our Police Department to be one of the best in the state, if not the nation.

While no agency is perfect, the Cornelius PD is known for being professional, respectful, and driven by the tenets of community policing – which can be defined as: for, with, and by the community."  - Andrew Grant, Town Manager

The transition to a new solid waste provider begins July 1
Beginning Wednesday, July 1, the Town of Cornelius will transition to a new solid waste provider.
The new contractor, Waste Pro , also provides solid waste services for many area municipalities including, Davidson, Harrisburg, Concord, Belmont, and Monroe.
In spite of this change, you should not see a significant difference in service:
  • Collections days will remain the same;

  • You will continue to use the same carts;
  • Recycling will still be collected every other week, and the collection week will remain the same. Please remember to "recycle right" and only put these items in the bin.
To ensure a smooth transition, Waste Pro drivers are spending time in Cornelius learning the routes. However, we ask for your patience should they miss any pick-ups in the first few weeks.
Missed pick-ups or damaged carts should be reported to Waste Pro at 704-317-2980 or online via  Waste Pro's TracEZ Portal .
Important note:   Residents currently paying Republic Services for additional carts must contact Republic to cancel this service at 1-800-238-2583 by Tuesday, June 30.  Those who still require additional carts may request them through Waste Pro by calling 704-317-2980.
For additional information, please email us at TownofCornelius@cornelius.org .
