Full Release

Cary, NC – As part of its continued response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town of Cary on Tuesday announced the cancellation of its April Town Council meeting. All boards, commissions, and committee meetings through April 30 are canceled as well. The decision aligns with federal guidance recommending social distancing measures remain in place through at least the end of April.

Town facilities (except for the Citizens Convenience Center) will remain closed in April, and all classes, programs, and events scheduled for the entire month are canceled.

“These are extraordinary times, and the actions we’re taking to help protect public health while keeping our community safe and viable are unprecedented,” said Cary Mayor Harold Weinbrecht.

Town officials are limiting their participation in offsite meetings, and Town staff not directly involved in the pandemic response will continue to work remotely at least through April 30.

“I couldn’t be more proud of our staff, thankful for our regional partners, or grateful to Cary citizens who are all doing what they can during this time of tremendous uncertainty,” Weinbrecht added.

While these closures and cancellations are in effect, Cary’s government continues to serve its citizens. Many common requests can be completed on the Town’s website, townofcary.org, including (but not limited to):

  • Utility payments and account changes
  • Inspections and permitting requests
  • Plan reviews
  • 311 requests

Additionally, the Town’s essential functions continue uninterrupted, including police, fire, curbside collections/sanitation, water distribution, wastewater treatment, and inspections.
