Stormwater Advisory Committee

The City of Statesville has created a Stormwater Advisory Commission (SWAC).  Members of this new commission will assist in the study and creation of the City's stormwater utility.

Non-voting members will be: a member of City Council, a member from the Planning Board and the City's Assistant Public Works Director.


The SWAC meets on the third Thursday of each month at 11:30 a.m. in the City Hall Conference Room on the 3rd floor. monthly for the first year.
