Water Main Break Outside Town Limits Affects Town Customers
A water main break this morning on Anna Drive near the Austin Pond subdivision outside of town limits has caused low pressure and total water loss for some Town of Clayton utility customers in the 42W area. Town of Clayton utility crews joined Johnston County Utilities crews to quickly restore water to Johnston Health hospital and the nearby medical facilities. Johnston County crews continue to work the repair. Any customer who had no water or experienced low water pressure, should consider boiling water for 1 minute before consumption. This is just a precaution until water test results come back from the lab by Monday.

Council Approves Historic Budget
Town Council marked Clayton's historic transition from a small to medium-sized town with the 4-1 passage of the 2019 Fiscal Year Budget, which will leverage $70 million dollars of investments in streets, public safety, and parks and recreation over the next decade. The budget, which holds the Clayton tax rate at $0.58, coincides with the state-mandated Johnston County revaluation year, which brought up property values throughout the area and will result in higher annual tax bills. This budget is expected to impact the average Clayton resident by adding about $28.66 more a month in increased utility and Clayton property taxes.
