The Mint Hill town hall tree lighting drew a crowd of hundreds Tuesday night. Citizens of all ages and backgrounds enjoyed hot chocolate and cookies as well as music from Mint Hill Middle School. Photos by Tim Long.
Mrs. Sparkles, who works at the front desk of Mint Hill town hall, got into the spirit of Halloween by donning a witches costume today. Town Manager Brian Welch wore a mullet wig (not sure what the official costume was) and Michelle Farrar dressed up as a UNC fan–now that’s scary!
(Mrs. Sparkles real name is Doris Miller)
Want to know about capital improvement plans in Mecklenburg? The County finally combined the information into an easy to use Web site. One project is the Ezelle Park in Mint Hill. County officials met Monday with town officials to discuss moving forward with the project. Mayor Ted Biggers said even if the $250 million parks and rec bond is voted down November 4, the county and Mint Hill want to have a plan in place for the park so when funds do come available, they will be ready to build.
For the third year, the Town of Mint Hill is sponsoring a scarecrow contest. Today is the day they were placed in front of town hall or businesses. Most got them up before the rain began, while some waited for an opening in the clouds.

Last year, the town spent $16,000 on labor, equipment and materials, among other things. This year, they spent $19,000.
