Staff at Mount Gilead Town Hall are in the middle of a major software upgrade, and the office is closed for the rest of the week. Town Manager Katrina Tatum told WMTG the scheduled computer maintenance is necessary to bring the billing and receipt systems up-to-date.
The work began Monday, and for two days the town staff have been issuing handwritten receipts for transactions. Now, the office is closed completely, but payments are still being collected in the outside drop box and will be processed as usual. Receipts for payments left today, tomorrow and Friday will be available starting next week.
