Message From the Mayor

Happy New Year...

I hope you and your families had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. As we begin 2020 I want everyone to make a commitment to complete the US Census.
Our founding fathers put a requirement in the United States Constitution that there be a headcount of all people in the United States every 10 years.
The fifty states of our great nation must report their population numbers to the President by December 31, 2020. There are two vital reasons to complete
the Census when it begins in March 2020. The Census count will determine Denton’s share of billions of dollars in federal and state money. Each person that
isn’t counted costs Denton $1500 in funding for schools, agriculture, roads, public safety and other vital programs. Another important reason to be counted is
that the number of seats for North Carolina in the US House of Representatives is based on our poplualtion. The more votes we have in the House the more
resources our representatives can bring to North Carolina, Davidson County and Denton. 

The US Census will be sent to every household in America. You have the option to respond by filling out the form, completing the Census online or calling your information in by telehone. All of the information you supply to the Census Bureau is confidential and protected by law. Your answers can not be used for any law enforcement purpose or to determine your eligibility for government services. The Census is so improtant that workers will be sent to all homes that fail to submit the information needed. If a Census worker visits your home, they are only there to help you complete the form. Census workers will have identification. If you have any doubt that a Census worker is legitimate contact your local law enforcement to investigate. You can find out more by visting 

I also wanted to take a moment to recognize all of the amazing work done by our Parks & Recreation Board in 2019. They planned, organized and delivered wonderful community events like the Easter Eggstravaganza, Movie in the Park, Watermelon Festival, Street Treat, Dog Days and others. Everyone on this Board volunteers their time and talents to make Denton a great place to live, work and play. A special thanks goes to Tina Lanier who rotated off the Board after 6 years of outstanding leadership.

Wishing you and yours a fantastic 2020!

Mayor Ward
