Introducing Sergeant Andy Mace!
Sergeant Andy Mace celebrated his 20th year with the Weaverville Police Department this Spring. His law enforcement accomplishments are vast. Never having met a stranger, Sergeant Mace (known in town as Andy) earned his certification in Community Oriented Policing in 2002 and has an Advanced Law Enforcement Certificate with the state of North Carolina. He leads the department in multiple community outreach programs such as the Medicine Drop, Back to School Drive, Neighborhood Watch, and Safety Assessments at churches. He is most proud of developing the successful Cops for Kids Program that has raised money and collected toys to donate to children at Christmas for more than 15 years. His hard work has been built strong friendships in the town and has been pivotal in cultivating positive relationships between the police department and Weaverville residents. A perfect example of his dedication to the community was on display in May’s Rolling Stones Magazine when Andy utilized an electronic sign to remind Weaverville that “We are all in this together”. “Rolling Stone picked up what we already knew. Andy has an innate ability to truly identify and connect with our community,” said Chief Ron Davis. 

He is also the head of the Weaverville Police Department’s field training program. When he speaks of his passion for the job, Sgt. Mace often reflects on how honored he is to be an integral part of the development of new officers. “Sgt. Mace teaches skills and imparts knowledge to new officers while also living an example of devotion, compassion, and a good-natured sense of humor,” explained Lt. Oberlin. “He is an excellent professional mentor. His impact can be seen when you look at the department of ardent professionals who have benefitted from Sergeant Mace’s influence.”

Andy married his high school sweetheart 21 years ago and his wife, Suzy, has become part of the Weaverville Police Department family through her involvement with Cops for Kids. They have two teenage sons who have also learned the “gift of giving” through volunteerism with the program. In their free time, the family enjoys going to the beach together and working on home improvement projects. Sgt. Mace also fosters many hobbies to include cars, woodworking, and photography. 

Thank you for your dedicated service Sergeant!

Public Comments to Town Council during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency
You Count! Please respond to the US Census.
By now, every home should have received an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, you can respond for your home in one of three ways: online at www.2020census.gov , by phone to 844-330-2020, or by mail using the envelope provided. When you respond to the census, you'll tell the Census Bureau where you live as of April 1, 2020.

Responding to the census is not only your civic duty; it also affects the amount of funding Weaverville receives, how Weaverville plans for the future, and our representation in government. Specifically, data from the 2020 Census is used to:

  • Ensure public services and funding for schools, hospitals, and fire departments
  • Plan new homes and businesses and improve neighborhoods
  • Determine how many seats North Carolina is allocated in the US House of Representatives

North Carolina has a chance to gain another representative in the U.S. House of Representatives, but it can only happen if we all are counted.

Join us and complete the 2020 Census today!
