Welcome to our newly elected board members! Johnny Frye, Jenny Stevenson, and Carl Lambert were sworn into office at our December 4th meeting. They will join Justin Draughn and Rob Taylor in representing the citizens of Mocksville as we move forward into 2022. Thank you for your willingness to serve.

As we say goodbye to 2021 and pin our hopes to 2022, most of us will promise ourselves that the coming year will be better because of a resolution we make. Nothing is as exciting as the commitment to a new resolution and few things can be as discouraging as failing to live up to a resolution. People who are able to stick with their New Year’s resolution have something in common. It isn’t money, time or resources. Planning is the key. After all, a goal without a plan is just a wish. This is just as true for organizations as [...]

Davie County Fire Marshal’s Office By order of the Fire Marshal, effective 12/01/2021, there is a zero tolerance burn ban placed on Davie County. “It is fall wildfire season in North Carolina, and we are seeing wildfire activity increase due to dry conditions. With these ongoing conditions, a statewide burn ban is necessary to reduce the risk of fires starting and spreading quickly. Our top priority is always to protect lives, property and forestland across the state.” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. Due to increased fire risk, the N.C. Forest Service has issued a State-wide ban on all open burning and [...]
I continue to be impressed by how well Mocksville and Davie County work together with the Economic Development Commission to create opportunities for our residents and grow the tax base. I began my job as Town Manager in May and since that time Mocksville has had the privilege to announce new businesses coming to the community like the Scott Bader Company and DFA USA. There is also strong support for business expansions like the one Liberty Storage Solutions is currently undertaking. Just these three businesses will create 134 good-paying jobs and invest almost $25,000,000 in Mocksville. This does not include projects [...]
Fall is finally here! With cooler weather upon us, it is time to get out and enjoy some of the events going on in and around our town. Last weekend you could have chosen between the Platters tribute band at the Brock, the music of Soundcraft at the Masonic Picnic, Cassette Rewind playing at the Davie Community Park, or just dining out at one of our restaurants here in town. On top of all of that, there are football games, soccer matches, tennis matches, and all kinds of sporting events going on for you to attend in and around the [...]
