Officer Bocanegra Receives Radar Certification

Our newest MPD officer, Morgan Bocanegra, recently earned his radar certification, making him a qualified radar operator. Morgan completed 40 hours of classroom training and additional hours of practical experience and testing. The Montreat police cars are outfitted with radar equipment, which allows officers to track vehicle speeds from both front and rear directions.

Several speed reminders:

  • The Town-wide speed limit is 20 mph except for Assembly Drive from the gate to Welch Field, where it is 30 mph.
  • Many of our roads don’t really support a 20 mph speed limit due to curves and narrowness. Please use judgment in your speed, especially as crowds begin to increase and more pedestrians are present.

Updates and Reminders

  • Yesterday, the Mayor informed the Town Council that we are searching for a new Town Manager, that things did not work out with Jason Burrell.
  • The Special Budget Workshop meeting scheduled for Monday, May 8, has been cancelled.
  • The Montreat Open Space Conservation Committee will meet on Tuesday, May 9th, at 3:30pm, in the Town Hall Community Room. The meeting will NOT be live streamed, but all are invited to attend.
