If a road is numbered as an NC or US route, it is a major road that is maintained by the North Carolina Department of Transportation. The Town maintains a map, referred to as the Powell Map, that shows which roads are maintained by the Town and which roads are maintained by the State.
10. I live outside the Town's limits but there is a water line in front of my house. What do I do to receive water services from the Town?
The property owner must submit a Utility Service Request and file for voluntary annexation.
