Public Service Announcement
As part of our ongoing commitment to maintaining a high quality of life for our citizens through cost-effective and innovative systems, the Town of Williamston is installing a new water meter system for our water and sewer services. The project includes enhancing nearly every residential and commercial water meter in Williamston with new, state-of-the-art technology that can wirelessly communicate usage data to the Town. The meter installation at each home begins today, August 8th, 2022, and will be completed by the end of the year. The advanced meter technology will collect multiple remote meter reads daily, allowing for better leak detection and improved customer service. In addition, the new meter system will produce long-term savings through more accurate billing down to the gallon. It is important to note that our community’s drinking water will remain safe throughout this project. Thank you for visiting our website, and check back with us for updates and new events.

A Little About Our Town 

Williamston (pop. 5,522) is located in rural northeastern North Carolina on the banks of the Roanoke River. The early settlement prospered since Williamston, incorporated in 1779, was located on a navigable river and ultimately became the seat of county government. As time passed, Williamston became a hub of commercial activity in northeastern North Carolina. 

The economy evolved to become dependent upon agriculture, wood products, limited manufacturing, and a commercial center for the region. Eventually the railroad was built, which took away much of the trade that had been assigned to the riverboats. Even though the river isn't used as much commercially as it once was, it still serves the community as a source of food and recreation. 

Williamston is a beautiful small town that seeks to preserve its culture and heritage. Its responsible citizenry and progressive leadership have positioned the town to take advantage of the changes being brought by a global economy. The town has an active downtown development association working to preserve the character of downtown, while at the same time positioning itself to serve the participants at the Senator Bob Martin Eastern Agricultural Center and other groups such as retirees or outdoor enthusiasts. 

Williamston is the first city in North Carolina to be certified as an Audubon Sustainable Community. The Audubon Sustainable Community program is founded in the three pillars of sustainability - a healthy local environment, quality of life for citizens, and economic vitality. You will find on your visit here, Williamston has a friendly, welcoming spirit filled with southern charm and an "easy living" attitude.

In a review by Millennial Personal Finance of 5,000 towns and cities in America, Williamston is ranked as one of the "Best Cities for Outdoor Lovers."
