Huge Funeral Procession Planned for Monday - Non-Essential Town Services Suspended Until 1 p.m.
Clayton will play host to a massive day of remembrance for Deputy Fire Chief Jason Dean, who lost his month-long battle with COVID-19 last week. With very little time and under extreme duress, the Clayton Fire Department has essentially planned the biggest parade in town history. Possibly 500+ firefighters and first responders from around the state and beyond will be coming with 250+ fire/emergency trucks to honor Jason with one final fire run through his hometown. Town services will resume at 1 p.m. but Monday morning, we hope the entire community comes out to show its support for Jason and his family.

Largest Project in Clayton History Underway
The largest project in the history of the Town of Clayton and one of the biggest municipal projects in the state is now underway. The new Neuse River Water Reclamation Facility will be a $120 million project that will set Clatyon up to continue as a thriving and vibrant community. The current wastewater treatment facility was built in the 1950s in a floodplain and is nearing the end of its useful life. The new plant will be constructed built outside of the floodplain with new technologies that will enhance protection to the environment. The state has already approved $12 million in grants and more funding is being sought.

Clayton Transitions to New Leadership
The Clayton Town Council voted to accept the resignation of Town Manager Adam Lindsay and appoint a new interim manager. Clayton has only had two managers in the past 23 years and Lindsay served for the past four, a time of tremendous growth for the town. The Town will now turn to JD Solomon, a 30-year resident who has worked as a consultant for Clayton for many years on a wide range of management, engineering and planning projects. Listen in as Council takes the vote and hear from Solomon on his history with the town and the work that lies ahead.

O'Neil Street ReOpens to Vehicle Traffic after Greenway Tunnel Installed Underneath
O'Neil Street is back open to drivers following a 9-week closure to accommodate a $3.5 million project to build a pedestrian tunnel under O'Neil and allow for an exciting extension of our popular Sam's Branch Greenway. Fred Smith Company reopened the road around 1 p.m on Friday, August 14th. Just five days later than the original schedule due to Hurricane Isaias. Thanks for everyone's patience. The greenway tunnel/trailhead/parking lot and extension will open this fall.

Town Leaders Stand with the Community Against Racism
In just one week, Clayton had shifted from one crippling crisis to another. And once again, in the face of crisis, the Clayton community came together. Our Mayor, Town Council, Police Chief, Fire Chief and all other Town leaders want Clayton to know...we stand with this community against racism and police brutality and we denounce those involved in the death of 46-year-old Minneapolis father George Floyd. Several peacful events were hosted in Downtown Clayton on Saturday, all aimed at bringing unity, all organized by Clayton youth. We can't say enough thanks to the organizers, who worked hand-in-hand with the Town and Clayton Police.
