Message from Town Manager


I hope this text finds you and your families doing well through this difficult time in history. Through this challenging time, I just wanted to send my regards to each one of you, the citizens of Maysville, and say, “thanks.” Although the world is going through an unprecedented time. I am reminded of how fortunate I am to have you all as citizens and neighbors.

As of today, the first positive cases of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) have been confirmed in Jones County. Two (2) individuals from the Trenton area who were in direct contact with each other were tested for COVID-19 on Sunday, April 5. Confirmation of positive COVID-19 test results was forwarded to the Jones County Health Department on Tuesday, April 7. The individuals are currently hospitalized.

I ask that you, citizens of Maysville, continue to utilize the preventive methods to slow the spread of the virus. Frequently wash your hands, staying home when sick, disinfecting surfaces, covering coughs and sneezes, and social distancing.

Town officials are aware that a few citizens are currently unemployed. To help citizens/customers who are struggling financially during these difficult times, the Town of Maysville will suspend the disconnection of water service for non-payment through May 30, 2020. The Town will also waive late fees on balances that have a due date of March 31 through May 30, 2020. This complies with Governor Roy Cooper’s Executive Order 124 signed March 31, 2020.

Please remember that the unpaid balance does not disappear and continues to be due to the Town. The balance will increase with any amounts currently due if you do not pay your bill.

We encourage customers to pay whatever they can, as they can so that they are not building a large balance that may be difficult to pay. We also encourage our customers who may have difficulty paying their bill to contact our office at 910-743-4441. We will work with you on arrangements.

Remember, together we will get through this pandemic as we did with Hurricane Florence. I was once told that life is a series of attempts to complete a specific task. It is not what you go through that matters, but how you handle it. One trait that I’ve observed in the citizens of Maysville is resilience. I believe that we will rise, be more robust, and better than before.
