Mint Hill Residents,

I hope you have been able to take some time to get out and enjoy this beautiful weather we are experiencing. We ask you to continue to remain vigilant. Continue to practice social distancing. Wear a mask when out in public. Wash your hands. The riskiest activities for spreading the virus involve standing or sitting close to other people for longer than ten minutes. For that reason, our May 14 Board of Commissioners meeting is closed to the in-person public.  You can view the meeting via the Town’s YouTube channel.

The link to the live-stream channel is https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5LTHPE0q3K_NrtO2MP4y6w/live.

The Board will hear Public Comment at the May 14, 2020 meeting by email only.  Please email your comments at tomwells@admin.minthill.com on or before May 14, 2020, at 6:45 pm.  Please include your name and address and your comment will be read into the record at the appropriate time.  Comments submitted anonymously will not be read into the record.  All comments will be maintained as a public record and included in the minutes of the meeting.

The agenda and the complete packet can be found on our website at www.minthill.com.

I recently proclaimed May 15, 2020, as Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Global Awareness Day throughout Mint Hilland urge all of our citizens to support the search for a cure and assist those individuals and families who deal with this challenging disease on a daily basis.

There is an estimated 50,000 Americans and 1 million people worldwide that have been diagnosed with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), a genetic disease with no cure. Tuberous sclerosis complex is often a devastating disorder that causes tumors to form in vital organs, including the brain, heart, kidneys, skin, liver, and lungs. The disease is also the leading genetic cause of both epilepsy and autism. TSC affects some people severely, and others so mildly often go undiagnosed. The incident of TSC is as common as Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) or cystic fibrosis, increased awareness is vital. The Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance and other groups around the world have joined to promote awareness of the disorder to ensure people with TSC get the best possible treatment and proper diagnosis.

Even with Town Hall closed, I continue to hold office hours Tuesdays from 1:00-4:00 pm and Thursdays from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm.  Feel free to call me with any questions or concerns at 704-563-3860.

Stay safe, stay well, stay home!

Brad Simmons

Mint Hill Mayor
