Additional News Release from Mecklenburg County:

NEWS RELEASE


As you know, Mecklenburg County issued a Stay at Home Order beginning Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 8:00 a.m.  This means all residents are asked to stay at home for the next three weeks unless you have an essential need to be out or you are an employee of an essential business such as medical, fire, police, etc.  Mecklenburg County has spelled out what is considered "essential" and "non-essential" in the guidelines set forth below.  

It is absolutely vital that everyone, young and old, abide by the guidelines established in order to stop the spread of this virus.  The sooner we start this, abide by it and get through it, the sooner we can get back to a more normal life. We all have media overload, confusion, questions -- it's all very overwhelming simply because we have never experienced anything like this in our lifetimes and we are all trying to navigate uncharted territory.  It is just as overwhelming and confusing for us as it is for you but we are doing our best to keep things operating, to keep you informed and most of all to keep you safe.  Please stay calm, stay focused, practice safe measures, keep your distance -- abide by the guidelines.  

Employees of the town have been ordered to work from home as much as is possible.  We strongly urge that you utilize as many of the on-line or drop-off payment services that the town offers. We also encourage you to utilize email options whenever possible. Email addresses are listed on each department's website page. Employees will have access to their work computers/emails but may not have all the resources necessary to fully answer questions you may have. 

Garbage/Recycling collection services will continue to operate on the current schedule but stay tuned to the website in case that changes.  If you have bulky items for pickup or missed garbage, please contact Waste Pro directly at: 
1-980-255-3800 or you can utilize the links on our website under the Public Works tab, to schedule a pickup or report a miss. 

Don't forget that you can still use our Fixit Pineville App to report issues throughout town. If you haven't downloaded it, you can go onto the front page of the town's website and access there. 

Pineville Telephone, Electric, & Internet payments can be made online at:

www.pinevilledsl.net   Click on the "Pay My Bill".  Service issues can still be called in and will be addressed as necessary.

Parks are open so people can get out to walk or simply enjoy the outdoors but the playground equipment, restrooms and dog park are all closed. 

Most travel/meetings have been cancelled but, by law, some meetings must take place.  If a meeting is scheduled, it will be posted on the website and instructions provided for those that wish to call in to join the meeting remotely. 

Thank you.
