On March 17, 2020, Mayor Mark Kownick announced that the Village of Cary has formally declared a Local Disaster Emergency due to the ongoing Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak.

Pursuant to Section 2.64.130 of the Village Code, the Mayor may declare a local disaster emergency. The purpose of a declaration of a local disaster emergency is to allow for a more effective response to the evolving COVID-19 public health crisis by temporarily suspending purchasing policy rules to allow quick response and recovery action, as deemed necessary. The Village is united with other local communities in taking this action.

The Village continues to take active steps to ensure all essential Village services will be functional. The safety, health and well-being of our residents and business community are the highest priority when it comes to decision-making by the Village. 

The public is able to conduct Village business by phone (847.639.0003) or by visiting the Village's website at The following popular services can be done online and/or over the phone:

  • Paying water and sewer bills
  • Applying for permits
