09.09.2020 Message from Mayor Brad Simmons
Mint Hill Residents,
Labor Day is called the "unofficial end of summer" because it marks the end of the summer before everyone heads back to school. Our children are back in school, but not physically back in the classroom. My daughter is an educator and a parent trying to make this year special and normal. I see many parents like her, trying to balance. I see our community coming together and sharing resources. Your Town leaders support you and are here for you if you need us.
If you have not already done so, I encourage you to complete the 2020 Census. The distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funds, grants and support to state, counties and communities is based on the census data. According to our last update from the MeckCounts, Mint Hill was at a 66.5% completion. We have until September 30 to be counted. If you have questions, visit my2020census.gov or call the Census Bureau at (884) 330-2020.
On a lighter note, if you are looking for an art project to do with your children, consider participating in the 3rd Annual Town of Mint Hill Scarecrow Decorating Contest. There is over $1500 in cash prizes that will be awarded to the best business and residential scarecrow. Check with your teachers to determine if you can get an art credit as well.
Lastly, the playgrounds at the parks were officially opened on Friday. Over the weekend, there were several families at the park enjoying the beautiful weather. We will continue to clean the equipment on a regular basis, and still encourage everyone to adhere to the general guidelines. Wash your hands, maintain social distance, and wear a mask.
Stay healthy and be counted.
Mint Hill Mayor
