WEDDINGTON, NC – Elizabeth Callis, Mayor of the Town of Weddington, on the behalf of the Town Council and the residents of Weddington has proclaimed the week of April 5-11, 2021, as National Public Health Week 2021. This year’s theme is called “Building Bridges to Better Health.” The proclamation is so that residents help families, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and leaders to better understand the value of public health and support great opportunities to adopt preventative lifestyle habits.
The new timeline for solid waste services includes sending out the RFP on April 1, 2021, with opening bids starting May 7, 2021, and a decision on whether to move forward with contracted services by June 14, 2021. The “base bid” includes household garbage (with backdoor service) collected on a once-weekly basis from the curbside. Twelve options will be priced separately for each municipality to choose from, including recycling collection and disposal, bulk collection and disposal, yard waste collection and disposal, hazardous household waste, Christmas tree collection, and electronic waste collection and disposal.
The Town of Weddington proposed improvements at the intersection of Deal Road (SR 1340) and Weddington Road (NC 84), based on current and future traffic needs including a stop-controlled or signalized intersection. A proper traffic operations analysis is planned.
The Board will continue planning for their annual Easter event on March 27 at Town Hall.
