Welcome to the Town of Burnsville Website

Burnsville is located in the mountains of Western North Carolina in the shadow of Mount Mitchell which has the highest peak east of the Mississippi River. This website is a source of information to our residents and visitors about our government and community. It will continue to grow and evolve to meet the needs of the community.

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic Governor Roy Cooper has issued Executive Order 142 extending the deadline regarding delinquent RESIDENTIAL water accounts with local municipal service providers until July 29, 2020.

Governor issues EO 141, moving the State to Phase 2, effective 5pm on 5-22-20 and expires at 5pm on 6-26-20 unless repealed, replaced or rescinded.

Burnsville Town Hall Reopening Notice

The utility billing window at Town Hall will reopen on Monday June 1, 2020 for customer payments.

Due to the ongoing COVID 19 crisis we still encourage our customers to make payments via mail, electronically on the Town’s website or by using the two drop boxes located outside the Town Hall entrances.
