City of Statesville crews are monitoring the possibility of winter storm conditions and are prepared to treat roads for snow or ice, as needed.  There are currently no plans to pre-treat the roads with brine due to the expected rain today.  Rain dilutes the brine and washes it off roads.

Travelers are reminded to be on the lookout for possible icy patches due to freezing temperatures overnight.  City crews will use salt and sand to treat any spots on the road that might cause trouble.

Overpasses, bridges and exit ramps are treated first.  If you encounter ice or adverse road conditions while traveling in the Statesville area, please call 704-878-3406.  Do not call 911.  For real-time travel information at any time, call 511, visit www.ncdot.gov/travel or follow NCDOT on Twitter at www.ncdot.gov/travel/twitter.

Fifth Street Shelter Ministries, 1421 Fifth St., will provide temporary shelter for any Iredell County resident who may need relief from the cold.  Any resident who may require transportation to the shelter may call the Iredell County Emergency Communications Center at 704-878-3039.

You have a way to help Statesville residents who are having a hard time paying their utility bill through a great program called Statesville Connects.

This voluntary assistance program is funded by donations from Statesville utility customers and other individuals/organizations. The City works with the Statesville Salvation Army, a non-profit organization that provides emergency assistance for low income families and people in crisis. Only Statesville residential utility customers who meet the Salvation Army’s requirements will receive assistance with their bills.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
You can help by downloading the Statesville Connects form and let us know that you want to add $1, $5 or more to your monthly utility bill.  By simply checking a box, this amount will automatically be added to your monthly utility bill.  Monthly contributions will remain in effect until you notify customer service to discontinue.  You can also write a separate check to the Statesville Connects Program. (make checks payable to City of Statesville and designate for Statesville Connects.

Contributions to the Statesville Connects Program may be tax deductible.  The City will provide you with annual statements to document your total donation. Follow the directions on the form to notify the City of your participation.

DO YOU NEED ASSISTANCE TO HELP WITH A STATESVILLE UTILITY BILL?
If you need help with a bill, contact the Statesville Salvation Army to determine if you qualify for assistance from this program. 1361 Caldwell St. or 704-872-5623.
