Mooresville

Fire-Rescue receives top rating: The Town Board of Commissioners and Insurance Commissioner and State Fire Marshal Mike Causey recognized Mooresville Fire-Rescue for achieving the highest possible inspections rating, ISO Class 1. Mooresville Fire-Rescue is the only fire service with fewer than 100,000 residents to receive this rating in North Carolina.

Huntersville

New garbage vendor: On June 17, the town will transition from Advanced Disposal LLC. to Waste Connection, Inc. for solid waste disposal services such as household garbage, yard waste and recycling. This change is the result of a business decision made by the two companies to sell assets in unrelated markets. The town expects impacts of the transition will be minimal for solid waste customers. Branding will be the biggest change customers observe during the transition. For answers to frequently asked questions, click here.
