To the merchants of West Jefferson,
Pursuant to Executive Order 141, I am authorizing the temporary closure of certain streets to assist our local restaurants to be able to serve their customers. Please review the attached rules and regulations regarding these temporary closures. These closures shall remain in effect for so long as Executive Order 141 is in effect, unless otherwise extended or retracted by the Town of West Jefferson. Except as otherwise modified by Executive Order, we continue to require all restaurants to comply with any laws or regulations set forth in the North Carolina General Statutes, the North Carolina ABC Commission or other controlling legal entity. We greatly appreciate your assistance and your support for the Town of West Jefferson.
To assist the restaurants during current Phase II restrictions the Town Board voted to close certain streets and parking spaces to help increase seating capacity. The street closures are temporary due to the current restrictions of Phase II that only allows restaurants to seat at 50% capacity. Once Governor Cooper lifts restrictions and allows restaurants 100% capacity the temporary street closures will end.
Tom Hartman, Mayor
