Yard of the Month

Our Yard of the Month begins on May 1st and ends in October.  We are asking our Franklinville residents to nominate someone with a beautiful yard, by calling, or emailing the Town Hall before the last day of the month.  The chosen Yard of the Month will be featured on our Town Facebook page and have the Yard of the Month sign posted in their yard for the month. We hope this will encourage everyone to get out and beautify their yards, which will then add to the landscape of our Town. This will be an annual event running from late spring through mid fall.

Rabies is 100% preventable.

If you see a bat in your home:
• Do not handle the bat
• Call 911 right away! Also call Randolph County Public Health at 336-317-6200 and Animal Services at 336-683-8235
• See medical attention IMMEDIATELY if you see a bat in the home.

Did you know….
• Without immediate treatment, rabies is nearly always fatal.
• It is hard to know if you have been bitten by a bat due to the size of their teeth.
• Many people do not feel bat bites and marks disappear quickly.

Sewer System Spills/Overflows – EWWW!!!!

They’re messy, bad for the environment, and can result in stiff penalties from regulators.

Sewer backups and overflows are frequently caused by improper materials such as fats, oils, and grease being placed in the sewer system by customers. Since fats, oils, and grease are lighter than water, they tend to accumulate at the top and sides of the sewer pipes and can build up until a blockage occurs. If a blockage happens, the sewer backs up and overflows, resulting in property and environmental damage.

By reducing the number of fats, oils, and grease that enter the system from homes, YOU can help protect the environment, and possibly your home, by preventing sewer backups and overflows.

Please Help Us with the grease problems in our system by:


  1. Collect grease in a container and dispose of in the garbage.
  2. Place food scraps in waste containers or garbage bags & dispose of in the garbage.
  3. Place a wastebasket in the bathroom to dispose of solid waste (e.g., feminine products, Q-tips, etc.)


  1. Put disposable diapers & personal hygiene products in the sewer.
  2. Pour oil and grease down drains.
  3. Wash fryers/griddles/pots/pans and plates with water until oil and grease are removed (wipe off grease with a paper towel before washing).
  4. Use hot water to rinse grease off surfaces.
  5. Put food scraps down drains.


Por favor, ayúdanos con problemas de grasa en la sistema del agua:

  1. No tire aceite o grasa en los drenajes.
  2. No lave con agua freidoras/planchas, olías/cacerolas y platos hasta que el aceite y la grasa hayan sido removidos.
  3. No use agua caliente para limpiar la grasa de las superficies.
  4. No tire desperdicios de comida en los drenajes.
