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
