STAY-AT-HOME ORDER is in effect, and Garner Town Hall is closed to the public until further notice.

Residents currently have only online and phone options for utility and tax bill payments. Field inspections will occur between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. And the schedule for the unprepared trash and yard waste pickup has been modified. The April 6 Town Council meeting and April 20 Planning Commission meeting are cancelled.

The Planning Commission is an appointed body of citizen volunteers, authorized under Article 19, Chapter 160A of the North Carolina General Statutes, and established to serve as an advisory board on land use matters and other duties as assigned by the Town Council.  The Planning Department provides staff support for the Commission. The public may contact Elisabeth Webster, Planning Technician and Secretary to the Commission, for more information.

The Planning Commission's regular meetings are held on the third Monday of each month at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers located at 900 7th Ave - this schedule is amended as needed to accommodate holidays. The commission has a total of seven members, five (5) members must reside inside the Garner town limits and two (2) members must reside outside of the town limits in the extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ).
