The Governor recently announced that the state of North Carolina has entered into Phase 3.0 of the Coronavirus response as of October 2. The Town’s top priority is and always will be the safety and security of the community. Town officials are taking the current spread of COVID-19 very seriously and are working closely with Emergency Management officials and other local partners in monitoring the situation. While there have been some changes to Town programming, all necessary arrangements are being made to ensure that all Town essential services are provided during this evolving situation.

 

Some of the changes that have been made at this time to limit the spread of the virus and other diseases include:

  • All residents are encouraged to conduct utilities payments with the Town utilizing its online feature at https://jamestown.billingdoc.net/login or depositing your payment in our Town Hall utilities payment mail slot located in the front and back doors. You may also pay by telephone by calling 1-833-394-6865. You may find your WEB ID on your most recent bill or you may call Town Hall at 336-454-1138 to obtain it.
  • All residents are encouraged to conduct other business with the Town, where possible, by calling the Town offices at 336-454-1138 during normal business hours (Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.). Visitors to Town Hall are *highly* discouraged at this time.
  • The Town Council meetings will be held according to their regular meeting schedule. In person attendance at the meetings will be limited to 25 people in order for the Town to be compliant with the current Coronavirus restrictions. Staff will continue to stream the meetings live on the Town of Jamestown’s YouTube channel. Everyone that attends the meetings will have their temperature taken to ensure that they do not have a fever. All public comments must be made in person at the meeting. Citizens that would like to address the Council will be allowed to enter into the meeting one at time unless the 25 maximum capacity has not been reached. Please call (336) 454-1138 if you would like to sign up to speak during the public comment period.
