4th of July
County Closings
& Celebration

Currituck County will host its 28th Annual Independence Day Celebration on Friday, July 3 in Historic Corolla Park.  The fireworks show will begin at approximately 9:00 p.m. and there will be no activities in the park prior to the fireworks.

Several county departments, including the County Manager, Emergency Management, Emergency Medical Services, Tourism, and the Currituck County Sheriff’s Office have collaborated to develop a robust safety plan to help guard against possible exposure to the COVID-19 coronavirus. Staff has also consulted with Albemarle Regional Health Services for advice on best practices for this event.

Key details of the safety plan include:

  • The county is limiting the number of vehicles that will be allowed into Historic Corolla Park for the event. Parking spaces will be marked off and staff will direct parking to keep vehicles socially distant from each other.
  • Guests will be asked to remain at their vehicles, if they have a clear line of sight to view the fireworks, and remain socially distant from other groups.
  • Designated family/small group areas will be marked on the grass of the pedestrian area. Each of these spaces will be socially distanced from others. This will help limit large groups of people congregating together.
  • Guests are asked to bring a face mask to use during the event. This falls in line with Governor Cooper’s latest Executive Order requiring face masks in public locations.
  • Portable restrooms and hand washing stations will be located at multiple locations within the park.
  • Law enforcement and staff will be present to remind guests of social distancing and the use of face masks. Staff will have a limited number of face masks available for guests who may not have one.
  • There will be NO other activities held during the day that are normally part of the Independence Day Celebration, such as vendors, live music, children’s games, corn hole tournament, or watermelon eating contest.

Please behave responsibly and remember to practice safe habits before, during, and after the event. The use of face masks, remaining socially distant from others, and washing hands will help everyone limit the risk of possible exposure to COVID-19.

Other reminders:

  • There is no parking allowed on the sides of NC 12.
  • Guests are not allowed to bring alcohol or coolers into the park.
  • Dogs are permitted on leash.
  • There is no rain date for this event.

Personnel from the Currituck County Wastewater Department will be conducting smoke testing for Moyock Regional Wastewater Treatment System on Tuesday, June 23,  Wednesday, June 24, and Thursday, June 25, 2020 to identify problem areas of the sanitary sewer system.

Tuesday, June 23, 2020
12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

  • Moyock Commons
  • Moyock Crossing
Wednesday, June 24, 2020
8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

  • Moyock Crossings (continue)
  • Hidden Oaks
  • Lakeview
Thursday, June 25, 2020
8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

  • Lakeview (continue)
  • Countryside Estates
Smoke testing is conducted by blowing air and a smoke-like product into the sanitary sewer system to locate areas where stormwater and/or groundwater may enter. The “smoke” is a non-toxic, odorless substance which is harmless to:

  • people
  • pets
  • food
  • furniture
  • and equipment

During testing, smoke will move through underground piping to house plumbing and is discharged from your plumbing vents on your roof.

Please Note:

  • Smoke may enter your house if your plumbing is faulty or your drain traps are dry. To prevent this, please pour water into all drains in your house prior to the date indicated above.
  • If smoke is detected in your house during the test, open your doors and evacuate until the smoke is cleared. The smoke will disappear quickly with proper ventilation.
  • The presence of smoke in your house should be reported to the County personnel on site. All public safety authorities have been notified of this smoke test (County Sheriff, Fire, and EMS).
  • Mention this notice to your neighbors to prevent any unnecessary concerns.
  • Your presence at your house is not required during testing since it is conducted from the streets.
  • County personnel conducting the test will be taking pictures and documenting where smoke is appearing (street, yards, driveways, cleanouts, etc.). At times, County personnel may need to enter yards or driveways to document information but will not enter houses.

Currituck County Wastewater Department has created an informational brochure that outlined the sanitary sewer system and its proper usage. Residents are encouraged to familiarize themselves with this information and should also take the time to fix any known problems on their property that connects to the sanitary sewer system prior to this test. Homeowners found with any deliberate sources that drain stormwater or groundwater into the sanitary sewer system may be fined up to $1,000 per day per violation (Currituck County Code of Ordinances, Section 13-139).

If adverse weather occurs during the above time period, smoke testing will be rescheduled. Residents can check this website for updates.

BUDGET MESSAGE
CURRITUCK COUNTY ABC BOARD
FY 2020-2021

A budget consisting of projected revenues from sales, balanced against projected taxes based on those revenues, operating expenses and distributions has been prepared as  required by NC GS 18-702.

  2. Part-time hourly 1-Moyock 1-Grandy
  3. Full-time seasonal/hourly Corolla store

The Board has plans for a larger, more efficient store in Corolla to meet the demands of the growing tourism. At this time, the Board, will maintain their current agreement with local government subject to change as the project moves forward.

The Board is in an agreement with the county to open a new store in Corolla. The building which the county will own and should be completed with their part in spring, we hope to have our part completed by end of summer.

Operation Love Thy Neighbor

Operation Love Thy Neighbor is a charitable program intended to provide assistance to Currituck County residents who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Individuals, businesses, and community groups are asked to make monetary donations during the month of May to help their fellow county residents. Then in early June, all donations will be distributed in the form of Food Lion gift cards.

This program is modeled after Operation Santa Claus and the Department of Social Services is managing the collection of donations and distribution of gift cards. The Food Lion gift cards will be worth a specified amount of money and will have a restriction on them that does not allow the user to purchase alcohol or tobacco products.

There is no application or proof of financial hardship required to receive a gift card, other than being a county resident. But please remember that this is intended to help county residents who are struggling financially due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A distribution date has not yet been scheduled. When it is, there will likely be two distribution points – one each in the northern and southern areas of mainland Currituck – and will be set up in a drive-thru format to help limit the possible spread of COVID-19.

When the cards are distributed, adults will have to present an ID with a county address to be given one gift card.  The NC Cooperative Extension in Currituck County is also expected to participate by handing out numerous items, such as materials/activities for children to do at home, seed packets and planting guides, and a healthy recipe booklet.

Please take part in Operation Love Thy Neighbor and help each other make it through this tough time! Remember, we’re all in this together!
