Planning a Visit to West Jefferson?

​The health and safety of our citizens, employees, and the community are our top priorities.  We are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and following the updates from state and federal experts.  The decision has been made to take preventive action to slow the spread of this virus, so Town Hall will be closed to the public starting Tuesday, March 17th until Monday, April 6th. However, the staff will work regular hours to serve the citizens of the community. We will revise the projected opening date on a week by week basis.

Some of the changes that have been made at this time to limit the spread of the virus include:

All residents are encouraged to deposit utilities payments in the drop box located inside the first set of double doors at Town Hall using check or correct change or mail payments to PO Box 490, West Jefferson, NC 28694
All residents are encouraged to conduct other business with the Town, where possible, by calling the Town offices at (336) 246-3551 during normal business hours (Monday-Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm).

We encourage everyone to follow recommendations from the CDC to help prevent the spread of this virus:

If you need to speak to an officer or need officer assistance, please call (336) 246-9410 Monday – Friday 8:00am to 5:00pm
or (336) 846-5600 after normal business hours.

Thank you for your understanding and support at this time.
