Town Manager’s Corner

The Christmas season is upon us and 2017 is drawing to a close. This truly is the most wonderful time of the year. This season is both a time of rejoicing and reflection. 2017 has brought lots of new assets to our town, and I am thankful for the vision and acumen, and devotion of the Mayor and Town Board of Commissioners. I am also thankful for staff. They have all been working very hard serving the Town, and they continue to impress me daily. It continues to be a gift and a blessing to live and serve here in Mocksville, and the greatest reward to me as the Town Manager is working with the great people that I work with and the great people that live here.

Our efforts to further improve Mocksville continue. Main Street Park construction is well underway, and we hope to reach completion before year’s end. With the Oak trees replanting in Court Square, we hope to see mast arm traffic signals installed in early 2018. The Town Board recently approved the purchase of a new leaf removal machine as we have had mechanical issues with all of our existing equipment. As we work to complete repairs, and we use our new machine, please allow us to catch up on removing leaves that have continually fallen while equipment was out of service.

As we enjoy Christmas, New Years, and this wintery season, I hope that you all have precious time with family and friends dear to you. Gifts under the tree on Christmas morning bring fun and excitement. Perhaps the very best of gifts for us to have are peace, love, joy, health, freedom, and fellowship. I hope you all experience this in abundance throughout this winter and throughout 2018. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

With Warm Wishes,

Marcus Abernethy

Mocksville Town Manager

Town Manager’s Corner

Greetings from Mocksville Town Hall! It continues to be a blessing to live and work here in Mocksville. It is an honor to serve the Town. Mocksville is a very special place and I look forward to seeing some great things happen in the coming months. I am also excited to participate in many of our holiday celebrations.

Our Mayor and Town Board of Commissioners and town staff have been working very hard to make preparations for our projects that are or soon to be underway. I would like to sincerely thank the Mayor and the Town Board of Commissioners for their leadership in moving Mocksville forward. It is an honor to serve with our citizens.

Azalea Drive, Magnolia Avenue, Holly Lane, Beechwood Drive, Birchwood Lane, as well as Duke, Avon, Gwyn, Spruce Street, and sections Gaither Street have been resurfaced.

The second phase of the Main Street Park will be constructed starting in early October. I look forward to seeing this completed as our holiday seasons draw near. This park will include a downtown plaza with a fountain, old town clock, arbor trellis pergola, a covered shelter, flagpole, flower beds, and space to enjoy the landscape and the trees. A conceptual drawing is shown below.

We are also renovating Court Square. Four new Willow Oaks will be planted in October, and we have contracted with NCDOT to improve our traffic intersection to replace our wooden traffic poles with mast arm traffic signals.

The Town was recently awarded grant funding from the State of North Carolina to assist in the extension of water lines and roadway on Quality Drive in SouthPoint Business Park. This will make additional land available for several industrial sites that could create hundreds of jobs. The Town has also been awarded grants to pay for utility line mapping, and a grant has been awarded to assist in the expansion of Accumed.

As we enjoy the end of summer and the heart of the fall and holiday seasons, I hope that you have time to enjoy everyone and everything around you.

Sincerely,

Marcus Abernethy
Mocksville Town Manager

A Note from Mayor Marklin

Greetings from Town Hall! Although I have enjoyed a very warm summer, I am looking forward to the cooler temperatures that fall brings. In addition to the colorful foliage and sights and sounds of Davie High football games, I also wanted to make you aware of some community
events which offer chances for fun and fellowship.

The Oaks Festival is scheduled for October 14th and will hopefully be accompanied by four newly-planted oak trees. Our public works department is working hard to make the necessary improvements to the square so the trees can take root this fall. Come out and celebrate the new additions to our iconic town square! Just keep in mind that they will have to come down in 80 to 100 years. Sorry, I don’t make the rules.

The Downtown Bed Race will be on November 17th this year, which will coincide with our first lighting of the new oaks this evening. The Mocksville Christmas Parade is scheduled for the following day, November 18th. Please make plans to attend this fabulous community weekend this year. Last year’s race was packed, and folks had the opportunity to dance in the square between races. If you would like more information on how to enter the race, please contact Tami Langdon at Town Hall at 336-753-6705.Winterfest at Junker’s Mill is on the calendar for December 2nd. Bring the family out and

Winterfest at Junker’s Mill is on the calendar for December 2nd. Bring the family out and enjoy all the activities planned for this annual event. Horse and buggy rides through the town are scheduled for December 9th.I sincerely hope that each and every one of you will make time to enjoy these fun-filled events.

I sincerely hope that each and every one of you will make time to enjoy these fun-filled events with your friends and neighbors. On a different note, I wanted to thank you for being patient with us throughout the summer as waterline construction took place in town. We are
wrapping up projects and hope to have everything completed by the end of the year. Municipal elections will be held in November for Bermuda Run, Cooleemee, and Mocksville. Please take advantage of your civic duty to vote and elect public officials that represent your views in the town in which you live.

William J. Marklin, III, Mayor
