Dear Montreat Community,
I want to continue to communicate with you about matters pertaining to the Town of Montreat.
New Town Hall: The Montreat Town Council voted earlier not to build the new town hall on the Florida Terrace property, and it has now voted to start the rezoning process on the Florida Terrace property to residential from resedential/institutional. The process will take several months. The Town is in negotiation with the Mountain Retreat Association about the purchase of the site just outside the Gate for the new town hall.
Chief Jack Staggs Retires: Jack Staggs has been a popular presence around Montreat for years, and he will be missed. His retirement party brought out hundreds of people to bid him farewell after his many years of service to the Montreat and Black Mountain communities. Montreat Captain Dave Arrant is serving as the Interim Police Chief.
Communication Board: Check out the Town of Montreat Communication Board in the Post Office to see the way Town Clerk Angie Murphy is effectively reaching out to the community. Great job, Angie!
Tim Helms, Mayor
Town of Montreat
