A message from Emergency Management:

Road Repair...
In North Carolina, counties do not own or maintain roads, by State Statute. No County taxes go to support road maintenance or construction. The North Carolina Department of Transportation owns and maintains many of the roads in Yancey County; others are maintained by a municipality or are privately-owned and maintained.
