Don't miss out on important news and announcements from the City of Statesville.

Register to get the weekly call from the City telling residents about garbage schedules, upcoming programs, recycling weeks and lots more.  The calls come on Sunday nights at 7 p.m.

The list is also used to communicate with residents with important Statesville-specific events or emergencies are taking place.  This call-out system was used during the recent water emergency and we discovered that a lot of folks are not registered.

RECEIVE THESE CALLS: If you would like to receive these Sunday night calls or emergency notices,
register online by clicking here:

The Caller ID number is 980-829-0100. If you call this number, you will be prompted to enter your  area code and phone number in order to hear the original recording.

We switched systems July 1 and, unfortunately, lost some of the previous contact information.  Please re-register if you have stopped getting the calls.

If you have questions about the message or the call-out system, call 704-878-3586 and someone will call you back. (be sure to leave your number)


Iredell County switched to Hyper-Reach Communications System to provide notifications for local emergencies, alerts and weather alerts.  Take time to sign up for that service and encourage your friends to register.  It will notify you with more general emergency information.
