Mayor Costi Kutteh will be making the rounds over the next several months to personally thank the members of the various boards and committees that serve the City of Statesville. In addition to recognizing their commitment and the accomplishments of the boards, Mayor Kutteh will also present each member with a special gift.

This year's gift is a set of leather coasters inscribed with the Statesville city logo.
