The attached is the official notice of a possible quorum: Notice Possible Quorum at public safety staff meeting March 30, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of our annual Spring Fling event that was scheduled for April 11th, 2020.
Our decision is based on the restrictions set forth in Executive Order 120, issued on March 23, 2020, by our Governor Roy Cooper that bans all mass gatherings of 50 or more people in a single space, whether it be indoors or outdoors, to ensure the safety of residents in our state.
We will continue to make every effort to abide by and follow the guidelines and rules set forth for us as a community, and to do our part and be proactive as we work to help stop the possible spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
The last few days and weeks have taken a toll on a lot of us.
Mostly it’s the fear of the unknown, but it’s also the fear of what we do know.
There has never been a more important time for us to stand together as a town, as a community, as friends, and as neighbors.
For the majority of us, this is uncharted territory. Something new. Something we haven’t had to endure before.
It seems like every day there is uncertainty, but we need to remember that there is just as much hope.
The Town of Spring Lake would like for everyone to know that we are here, and we are all in this together.
If anyone needs anything, or even if it is just a question, please do not hesitate to contact our Town Manager, Mr. Daniel Gerald, at 910-436-0241, or our Mayor, Larry G. Dobbins.
Effective immediately, and to ensure the safety of all visitors, all Town of Spring Lake recreational areas, public parks, sporting fields, and athletic courts will be closed until further notice.
In an effort to be proactive, these steps have become necessary to ensure the safety of our community and our residents.
We thank you for your understanding and your cooperation.

An important message for our Spring Lake residents from our Water Operations Department:
“The Town of Spring Lake Water Operations is requesting that those who are currently sheltering at home due to the COVID-19 Virus DO NOT flush any products, other than toilet paper, down your toilet.
This includes baby wipes, diapers, feminine hygiene products, disinfectant wipes, paper towels or ANYTHING that isn’t actual toilet paper.
All other items must go directly into the trash. These are not meant to be flushed, as they do not break down in water quick enough to go through the pipes, hence causing clogs and possibly even more damage.
When these items are flushed, they WILL clog sewer pipes and pump stations, increase utility maintenance, create multiple environmental concerns, and cause extra work throughout the wastewater system.
Sanitary sewer systems are designed to accommodate toilet paper, which is made to disintegrate quickly in water. Nothing else.
It is proven that wipes, diapers and other materials will clog pipes, and this will lead to sewer backups into our homes and will from clogs down the line, impacting others.”
Thank you in advance.
