Help Us Show the Best of Marvin! 

Posted by Marvin Clerk Wednesday, October 21, 2020 11:45:00 AM

As you may know, the Village of Marvin is developing new website designed to improve communication with the community, and to provide a central resource for information of interest to residents and visitors. 

The Village has partnered with Granite Sky Creative Group for this project. GSCG has developed websites and coordinated citizen communication campaigns for many municipalities within the Charlotte region. 

To ensure the new website represents our community as well as possible, we are asking citizens to contribute photos they have taken of our community, whether they were at a past community event, a small gathering of friends out in the community, a scenic image taken while on an afternoon walk, or anything in the mix.  We would like to ensure these photos are of Marvin and our community and Citizens that call Marvin home. 

These photos would be used through out the new website and future communications and marketing material for the Village of Marvin. 

Please submit your photos, show everyone the best that Marvin has to offer!

Tax Bills Have Been Mailed Out 

Posted by Marvin Clerk Wednesday, October 21, 2020 11:15:00 AM

Property tax bills for 2020 have already been issued. On July 1, 2020, the property tax rate for the Village of Marvin increased by $0.01 per $100 of assessed value. The current tax rate is $0.06 per $100 of assessed value.
 
This increase was adopted to facilitate the hiring of a second police officer to better ensure the public safety. According to the results of last year's Resident Survey, 68 percent of Marvin residents supported hiring an additional Deputy Sheriff.

Payments can be made by check, online, or in cash. See below for instructions:

Check: Checks should be made payable to "Village of Marvin" and our mailing address is:
10004 New Town Rd
Marvin, NC 28173

Election Referendum: Mayoral Vote 

Posted by Marvin Clerk Tuesday, October 20, 2020 10:14:00 AM
From the Office of the Village of Marvin Administrator

Election Referendum:
Mayoral Vote

Q: What is a quorum and why is it important?
A: Simply put, a quorum is the majority of the Council including the Mayor; this is important because NC law requires quorums to conduct official business at a meeting.
Q: So, if the Mayor counts in the “quorum”, why would business be slowed?
A: Because the Mayor currently only votes in the case of a tie, his/her votes cannot be used in certain situations because the Mayor doesn’t always vote. Difficulties come into play if the business at hand involves an ordinance, financial agreement, or contract. Although the Mayor is included in the quorum to hold the meeting (meaning there are two members absent), the Mayor’s vote (even if there is a tie) does not count toward meeting the requirement of an affirmative vote equal to a majority of all the members of council not excused from voting. In essence, the Mayor can count in the quorum to have the meeting, but he/she cannot vote in matters that involve ordinances or financial matters if there are only 2 councilmembers present. When this happens, the item of business must wait until the next meeting for official approval (second time of presentation). These delays should be less common once an additional council member is added after the November 2021 election.
Q: How would allowing the Mayoral vote on all matters affect transparency?  
A: The majority of Council sees the change in allowing the Mayoral vote a way to streamline decisions, promote greater transparency, and to conduct efficient and timely business. The opinions and stance of issues of the Mayor would be clearly transparent as the Mayor votes on all issues.
 
SAMPLE BALLOT
