Tax maps are public record maps that show the location, size, ownership, and other information of individually owned real estate subject to property taxes. They may also be called parcel maps, or cadastral maps. ( GIS Mapping - Iredell County )

Tax maps are intended to be a visual inventory of all real property within the jurisdiction, for the primary purpose of administering property tax assessment. They are a valuable tool for surveyors, title searchers, realtors, appraisers, lawyers, developers, various other business people, county government offices, other government agencies, taxpayers, etc. If you want to know who owns a property and where it is located, tax maps are often the first place to check. ( GIS Mapping - Iredell County )

Tax maps are computer drawn by our technicians based on interpretation of property boundaries contained within various recorded legal documents, such as deeds, surveys, and plat maps. These documents generally contain a legal description, which describe the property boundaries. This legal description usually contains courses known as metes and bounds, or bearings and distances, such as north 45 degrees 25 minutes 30 seconds east, 135.77 feet. These are plotted out to produce an outline of the parcels which are made to fit together like a jigsaw puzzle to create the tax map. ( GIS Mapping - Iredell County )

Pandemic flu occurs rarely, but may cause more severe illness and result in more deaths than seasonal flu. No vaccines exist for pandemic flu. ( Health Department - Communicable Disease - Iredell County )

Bird flu is caused by viruses that primarily affect birds. Bird flu is highly contagious among birds but rarely cause sickness in people. Pandemic flu is a worldwide outbreak of highly contagious flu among people. ( Health Department - Communicable Disease - Iredell County )

Similar to seasonal flu, pandemic flu is spread from person to person through coughs and sneezes. This can happen when droplets from the cough or sneeze of a sick person travel through air and reach the mouth or nose of a person nearby. Pandemic flu can also be spread when a person touches respiratory droplets left behind on an object or surface by a sick person, and then touches his/her own (or someone else’s) mouth or nose before hand washing. ( Health Department - Communicable Disease - Iredell County )

Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water. Cover your coughs and sneezes. Stay home when you’re sick. Do not share used/dirty utensils. ( Health Department - Communicable Disease - Iredell County )

No one can predict when a pandemic will occur or how severe it will be. A pandemic has occurred on average every 30 to 40 years (range 10 to 50) over the last 400 years. The deadliest pandemic in recent history occurred in 1918. A recent flu pandemic, milder than the 1918 pandemic, occurred in 1968. The 2009 H1N1 flu, although it did not make people as ill, was truly a pandemic. ( Health Department - Communicable Disease - Iredell County )

Public health authorities around the world are working together to test and share information about influenza viruses. In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), working with state public health agencies, is actively monitoring influenza activity in this country. ( Health Department - Communicable Disease - Iredell County )

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, public health agencies at the state (such as Oregon Health Authority) and local levels (such as Washington County Department of Health and Human Services) have developed or are working on emergency plans to respond to a pandemic. State and local health departments are also working with healthcare facilities, businesses, faith-based organizations and other community groups to help them prepare for pandemic flu. ( Health Department - Communicable Disease - Iredell County )

Tuberculosis, or TB, is a preventable infectious disease caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. TB can attack any part of the body, but primarily attacks the lungs. TB disease was once a leading cause of death in the United States. Worldwide, TB still causes more deaths than any other infectious disease. During the 1940s, scientists discovered the first of many drugs used to treat TB. As a result, TB slowly began to disappear in the U.S. Unfortunately, TB infection has made a comeback in recent decades. After 1984, the number of TB cases reported in the U.S. began to increase. More than 25,000 cases were reported in 1993. ( Health Department - Communicable Disease - Iredell County )

TB is spread through the air from one person to another. The bacteria are spread when a person with active TB disease of the lungs or throat coughs or sneezes. People nearby can breathe in the TB germs that are in the air and may become infected. You CANNOT get TB from sharing a drinking glass with a person who has TB or touching a doorknob after someone with TB has used it. Also, once a person with TB is taking medication for treatment, he or she quickly becomes non-contagious. Additionally, once treatment has begun, he or she can quickly resume their normal life without fear of spreading TB to others. ( Health Department - Communicable Disease - Iredell County )

In most people who breathe in TB bacteria and become infected, the person's body is able to fight the infection and keep them from growing. The TB bacteria become dormant, and this is called latent TB infection. People with latent TB infection: * have no symptoms * don't feel sick * can't spread TB to others * usually have a positive skin screening test reaction Many people who have latent TB infection never develop active TB disease. In these people, the TB bacteria remain in the body for a lifetime without causing disease. But, in others, especially those who have weak immune systems, the bacteria can become active and cause TB disease. ( Health Department - Communicable Disease - Iredell County )

The presence of TB bacteria in the body can lead to active TB disease if an infected person's immune system can't stop the bacteria from multiplying. Some people develop active TB disease soon after becoming infected, before their immune system can fight the TB bacteria. Other people that carry the bacteria may become sick later in life. Symptoms of active TB disease depend on where in the body the TB bacteria are growing and may include: * bad cough lasting more than 3 weeks * pain in the chest * coughing up blood or sputum * weakness/fatigue * weight loss * no appetite * chills, fever, night sweats * usually have a positive skin test * may have abnormal chest x-ray and/or positive sputum smear or culture ( Health Department - Communicable Disease - Iredell County )

A. Those at highest risk for TB infection (recommended for testing) include the following populations: * Close personal contacts of active TB patients * Foreign-born individuals who have been in the U. S. less than 5 years * Residents and employees of prisons, hospitals, nursing homes, long-term care facilities, homeless shelters * HIV-positive persons * Patients with organ transplants and others who are immunosuppressed * Persons whose chest X-rays are consistent with TB disease * Injection drug users * Persons with clinical conditions that place them at a higher risk, including those with diabetes and chronic renal failure ( Health Department - Communicable Disease - Iredell County )

A healthcare provider can offer you a TB skin test if you are considered to be at high risk for getting TB. If you have a positive reaction to the skin test, your doctor or nurse may do other tests to see if you have TB disease. These tests usually include a chest x-ray and a test of the phlegm you cough up. Because the TB bacteria may be found elsewhere besides the lungs, a doctor or nurse may check your blood or urine, or do other tests. If you are found to have TB disease, you will need to take medicine to cure it. ( Health Department - Communicable Disease - Iredell County )

Bioterrorism is a different type of terrorism. It involves the use of organisms for the purpose of spreading potentially deadly illnesses, viruses and infections. Bioterrorism is the illegal use of microorganisms or toxins to cause death or sickness in humans, animals, or plants. This is done to create fear, cause injury and/or death, and to threaten governments and communities. ( Health Department - Emergency Preparedness - Iredell County )

Public Health has an important role in preparedness and response. Public Health response includes recognizing the disease and stopping and preventing the spread of disease. During outbreaks the department may set up dispensing sites to pass out medications and provide information to the community on ways to avoid catching the illness. In the event of a disaster or emergency, the Iredell County Public Health Department has emergency procedures to help protect the community. These procedures include sharing information with the public on ways residents can protect themselves, and agreements with specific local agencies to set up medication clinics, as necessary. Finally, the Iredell County Public Health Department participates as a member of the emergency response community to work collaboratively on any public health emergency. ( Health Department - Emergency Preparedness - Iredell County )

A disaster supplies kit is simply a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency. Try to assemble your kit well in advance of an emergency. You may have to evacuate at a moment’s notice and take essentials with you. You will probably not have time to search for the supplies you need or shop for them. You may need to survive on your own after an emergency. This means having your own food, water and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least 72 hours. Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster but they cannot reach everyone immediately. You could get help in hours or it might take days. Additionally, basic services such as electricity, gas, water, sewage treatment and telephones may be cut off for days or even a week, or longer. Your supplies kit should contain items to help you manage during these outages. ( Health Department - Emergency Preparedness - Iredell County )

What is a food-borne illness? Food-borne illnesses are those acquired by consumption of contaminated food or drink, and include those caused by chemical contaminants such as heavy metals and organic compounds. These illnesses are frequently and inaccurately referred to as food poisoning. To meet the definition of a food-borne illness, two or more persons must have consumed the same food and have similar symptoms of illness or one person must be physician/laboratory diagnosed with a specific illness. The Iredell County Public Health Department will take information regarding food-borne complaints, but these may not be investigated to the extent of a true food-borne illness. The most frequent causes of food-borne illnesses are: 1) bacterial toxins grown in the food prior to consumption such as Clostridium botulinum, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus cereus, and scombroid fish poisoning associated with elevated histamine levels; 2) bacterial, viral, or parasitic infections such as brucellosis, Campylobacter enteritis, diarrhea caused by Escherichia coli, hepatitis A, listeriosis, salmonellosis, shigellosis, toxoplasmosis, viral gastroenteritis, taeniasis, trichinosis, and vibrios; and 3) toxins produced by harmful algal species (cigautera fish poisoning, paralytic shellfish poisoning) or present in specific fish species (puffer fish poisoning). What are the symptoms of a foodborne illness? Symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramping, diarrhea, fever, headache, jaundice, tingling or numbness, muscle aches and pains, and many others. Not all food-borne illnesses have the same symptoms and the severity of symptoms varies from one person to the next. How long does it take for a foodborne illness to occur? Food-borne illness caused by chemical contaminants or that caused by allergic reactions to elevated histamine levels in fish can occur within minutes, while other food-borne diseases may occur anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks after consumption of the contaminated food/drink. Most persons will assume that the last meal eaten is the cause of their illness; this is very often inaccurate. Do I need to see a doctor about my foodborne illness? This is an individual choice based on how the individual is feeling; however, no food-borne illness can be proven unless the causative agent can be isolated from both the person and the food that they consumed. Therefore, it is very important that a doctor is seen so that specimens of blood, vomitus, or stool can be taken and that you contact the Public Health Department as soon as an illness is suspected so that food, drink, or food contact surfaces can be sampled in a timely manner. What information do I need to have when I call the Public Health Department? The first tool that the Public Health Department needs to investigate a complaint of food-borne illness is a thorough case history. You need to be prepared to provide information about your symptoms, the time, date and location of consumption of the suspected meal, when symptoms occurred, as well as a three-day food history of items consumed prior to becoming ill. In cases where a large group of persons consumed the same foods (such as a reunion, party, etc.), food histories must be taken from those persons not showing symptoms as well as from those who are ill. You must leave information about how you can be contacted during the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. so that additional information may be gathered as necessary. You may report a food-borne illness by calling 704-878-5305 (Statesville) or 704-664-5281 (Mooresville). From the information gathered from these case histories, the Public Health Department will make a statistical analysis about the type of illness and pinpoint the foods most likely to have caused the illness. What do I do with any food I have left of the suspect meal? The Public Health Department can only test foods that are still in the 'chain of custody' of the restaurant or facility where the meal was prepared, so meals taken away from the facility cannot be analyzed at the Public Health Department laboratory. Individuals can take the leftover food to a private lab for analysis if they desire, but the results will not be included in a Public Health Department investigation. Is the information about my illness confidential? Yes. Medical information about the individuals who are ill is confidential and will only be shared with the permission of that person. However, information about the investigation that takes place at the facility where the food was purchased is public information. What happens when you go to the facility to investigate where I purchased the food? A true food-borne illness investigation is treated as a high priority by the Public Health Department. Provided that the information about the illness is available to the department in a timely fashion, a full investigation will take place. An investigation of a food-borne illness will involve the tracking of the suspected food from the supplier through storage, preparation, and service to the consumer. This investigation may include: •Checking invoices of food stock and scrutinizing receiving practices of the facility •Checking food storage and preparation practices •Checking for proper hot and cold food holding/cooking temperatures •Taking samples of suspected food/drink for laboratory analysis •Swabbing food contact surfaces to isolate bacterial contamination •Observing foodservice employee hygienic practices •Interviewing foodservice employees about their health •Checking for proper surface sanitizing ( Health Department - Environmental Health - Food Protection and Facilities - Iredell County )

The North Carolina General Assembly ratified House Bill 1779 to create a combined motor vehicle registration renewal and property tax collection system. The legislation places the responsibility for motor vehicle property tax collection for the state’s 100 counties with the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The new combined registration fee and tax collection has become the North Carolina new Tag and Tax Together System. ( Motor Vehicles - Iredell County )

The new system took effect with the September 2013 renewals. ( Motor Vehicles - Iredell County )

The new form combines information about your vehicle registration renewal fee and your vehicle property tax due. The new Tag and Tax System allows you to make 1 payment for both registration and vehicle property tax. ( Motor Vehicles - Iredell County )

Yes. Vehicle registration renewal fees will remain at the same annual cost. The only increase in your bill will reflect the vehicle property tax amount. ( Motor Vehicles - Iredell County )

The due date will be printed on the new combined notice that you receive in the mail. ( Motor Vehicles - Iredell County )

No. You cannot renew your vehicle’s registration, whether it is leased or owned, unless the total taxes and registration fees on the vehicle are paid. ( Motor Vehicles - Iredell County )

The County is required to collect property taxes for unregistered vehicles per North Carolina General Statute 105-330.3. ( Motor Vehicles - Iredell County )

No. Property taxes paid to the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (NCDMV) at the time of registration renewal or issuance are for the same 12-month period as your registration. The taxes billed on a gap property tax notice are only for the months your vehicle was not registered with the NCDMV. ( Motor Vehicles - Iredell County )

A gap property tax notice will cover at least one month and can cover all months between registrations, without limitation. ( Motor Vehicles - Iredell County )

Vehicle value is determined as of January 1 of the calendar year in which the gap property tax notice was computed. ( Motor Vehicles - Iredell County )

Appeals of value, situs (location where taxed), and taxability must be filed with the tax office within thirty (30) days of the due date on this notice. ( Motor Vehicles - Iredell County )

Taxes are due by the September 1 that follows the gap property tax notice date and can be paid without interest before the following January 6.

Taxes are delinquent if unpaid on January 6 that follows the September 1 due date. Delinquent taxes are subject to garnishment of wages and levy on personal property immediately upon becoming delinquent. ( Motor Vehicles - Iredell County )

Camp Iredell is for ages 5-11. Camp Iredell Adventures is for ages 11-3. (Note: for 2021, Camp Iredell ages are modified to ages 5-12, since we are not offering the Camp Iredell Adventures program) Our policy is that children need to be within the appropriate age range at the time they START camp (due to the high demand and limited availability). For the younger children, it is helpful if they have had experience in a group environment (ex: daycare, pre-school, or kindergarten), although this is not required to attend. For older children, as long as they are the appropriate age when they begin attending camp, they may continue to attend for the remainder of the summer (See EXAMPLE in 3rd paragraph). Age 5: These children would need to be comfortable managing their items during the day (backpack, lunch, shoes, swimsuit, etc), following instructions, and being part of a large group. Must be able to change clothes and use the restroom independently. Age 11-12: 11 year olds can be in either program. If a child turns 12 prior to their registered start of camp, they would not be eligible for Camp Iredell, but would still be eligible for Camp Iredell Adventures. If a child does not turn 12 until after they have already started attending Camp Iredell, they would still be eligible to attend Camp Iredell for the remaining weeks they are registered (but could also attend Camp Iredell Adventures if desired, or alternate between the two). NOTE: With our online registration system, if your child ages out during/between the sessions, you may need to contact the office to continue the registration process for sessions past the DOB.

Online Registration Site ( Parks and Recreation - Camps - Iredell County )

You can pick which weeks you want your child to attend, although you may register for the entire summer if you wish. Most campers usually attend for the majority of the summer, as their schedule allows. ( Parks and Recreation - Camps - Iredell County )

You do not have to pay in full when you register, although you may, and there are no additional fees when you pay in full for a session.  There is a payment plan option, and with that you must at least pay $30 of your amount due during your initial registration (or any time you come back to add sessions). For payment plans, a surcharge of $5 per session is added to the weekly total. The $30 payment is non-refundable, non-transferrable, and is used as a deposit to hold your selected sessions. Remaining payments for weekly fee amounts are due the Monday prior to each session.  A late fee of $10 per child will be added to the remaining payments beginning on the Tuesday prior to each session.  If there is a waiting list, your child’s spot may be forfeited if remaining payments are not received on time. Any remaining payment must be received by 10am on Friday, or your child’s registration may be cancelled.  If your registration was cancelled, you will be required to re-register and pay all fees in full (you will not receive credit for previous deposits).  All sessions will close for new registrants and payments by 10am on the Friday before each session start.  If you pay in full initially, and cancel at a later date, you will only receive a partial refund, the session fee minus the $30 deposit (if cancelled prior to the deadline).  Because registrations are NOT 100% irefundable and are not transferrable, please be sure you are accurate and confident with your selections. ( Parks and Recreation - Camps - Iredell County )

Unfortunately, we can not offer a discount for multiple children. We try to keep our rates as low as possible (while still matching our expenses), and can not offer any further discounts. ( Parks and Recreation - Camps - Iredell County )

Cancellations must be received no later than the Monday prior to the week in question. If that week has been paid in full, the majority payment can be refunded, with the exception of the weekly deposit ($30) and surcharges. If only a weekly deposit has been placed on that week, then the deposit is forfeited upon cancellation. Weekly deposits are non-refundable and non-transferrable. Cancellations received after the Monday prior to each session are non-refundable and non-transferrable. ( Parks and Recreation - Camps - Iredell County )

Our rates are based per week and we are unable to offer daily rates or refunds for days missed. Refunds are only available for sessions if cancellations are made by the Monday prior to each session (deposit amounts ($30/week) and surcharges are non-refundable). Cancellations received late are non-refundable and non-transferrable. ( Parks and Recreation - Camps - Iredell County )

See the Camp Iredell home page for information specific to 2021. Some of the below information may not be applicable to 2021. We travel! *The camps only stay at the school sites during the morning drop-off (7am-8:30am for Camp Iredell, 7:30am-8:30am for Camp Iredell Adventures) and the afternoon pick-up (4:30pm-6pm). Between 8:30am and 4:30pm, the camps will travel to various locations for their scheduled activities (parks, pools, movies, bowling, science centers, etc). Select trips may require earlier drop-off or later pick-up than usual (prior notification will be provided).  * Travel can be subject to change (weather, etc). See NOTE below regarding potential Friday travel.  School Sites (Drop-Off & Pick-Up): East Elementary School (Gym) in Statesville, Mt. Mourne School (Gym) in Mooresville. PICK ONE. During the day, camp will visit a variety of locations. This could include: pools, parks, movies, bowling, science centers, nature/animal centers, historical locations, baseball games, etc. Camp usually swims 2 times each week. The featured “field trips” are usually on Wednesdays (wear camp shirt). See “Parent Handbook” for additional details.  NOTE: Due to cost-cutting procedures in place by the Iredell-Statesville school system, it may be the case that Camp Iredell will not be allowed to travel for some of the Fridays during camp (June & July). We have a use-agreement with I-SS regarding facility use and bus use. We may not be allowed to use the buses on Fridays in June & July, which means we will plan activities to be done at the sites on those days. This would not effect any scheduling on Mondays-Thursdays, and may only effect some, but not all, of our Fridays. This would not effect Camp Iredell Adventures, because they travel by van. ( Parks and Recreation - Camps - Iredell County )

Please label all items that your child brings to camp! Your child will be responsible for keeping up with all items they bring to camp. Be sure that your child wears appropriate attire and/or footwear to camp.  Backpack/sack/bag: This helps to keep all of your child’s belongings together. Please make sure your child is able to carry it to/from the bus, pool, etc when needed. Water Bottle: Water is available throughout the day, and we ask that children bring a water bottle for refilling. Lunch: Children need to bring a lunch each day (lunch box/cooler, paper bag, etc). Snacks (optional): A snack and juice and/or water are provided each afternoon, however if you believe this is not enough for your child, or your child needs/prefers a snack that we do not offer, you may pack a/another snack.  Socks and close-toed shoes: Sandals/flip-flops can be fine for some activities, however if your child is not wearing socks and close-toed shoes, please pack these items, even if not scheduled to use them. Last minute schedule revisions (due to weather or other unforeseen events) can happen. Some activities require socks and/or close-toed shoes (bowling, kickball, indoor play gyms, etc). Many parents/kids prefer shoes such as Keens, which are sandals with a closed-toe, so they do not have to pack additional shoes (only socks).  Swim suit and towel: Please also have your child bring a towel and swim suit every day, even if not scheduled to use them. Last minute schedule revisions (due to weather or other unforeseen events) can happen (water balloons anyone?). If scheduled to swim, please have your child arrive at camp with their swimsuit on under their clothes. Some children also prefer to have towels to sit on at various times of the day (in the grass, on the gym floor, etc).  Sunscreen (optional): Sunscreen (SPF 50 or higher) is provided by Camp Iredell (and applied by the counselors, see the information packet for additional information); however if your child requires a particular kind of sunscreen (due to allergies, etc), they may bring sunscreen with them (the staff will apply to them first).  Please do NOT bring toys or electronics (MP3 players, cell phones, game systems, etc). These items are problematic and distracting in a camp setting. If children bring these items to camp, they will be told to leave the item at home. If they continue to bring these items, they may be held at the site or brought to the Recreation office to be picked up by the parents. Camp Iredell is not responsible for any item(s) brought to camp (including damage and/or loss). Weapons, illegal drugs, or items of any kind that may be considered dangerous or unlawful are not permitted in any ICPRD programs or facilities. ( Parks and Recreation - Camps - Iredell County )

Depending on the activity, the campers may be divided into smaller age-appropriate groups. For activities such as arts & crafts, field trips/facility tours, and certain games, the campers may be divided. For activities such as movies, guest speakers, and playground time, the campers are not usually divided. For swimming with Camp Iredell, campers are permitted into certain areas of the pools based on their swimming ability and age/size. All campers will be tested on swimming ability during their first swim date (re-tests may be allowed throughout the summer), and given a colored bracelet to indicate which areas they can enter. Additional information pertaining to our swimming/testing policies is in the “Parent Handbook” (available on the website). ( Parks and Recreation - Camps - Iredell County )

Our staff to camper ratio is no more than 1:10 (staff:campers).  For certain larger trips (such as Carowinds and Emerald Pointe), we bring in additional staff to help lower this ratio. The age distribution varies each year, as we are not able to predict exactly who will register for our programs. Camp Iredell tends to have roughly 50% fall in the middle ranges (ages 7-9) with the remaining age ranges (5-6 and 10-11) falling fairly evenly on both ends (20-30% each). ( Parks and Recreation - Camps - Iredell County )

For our day camps, it does not matter if you live outside of Iredell County (there are no additional fees). As long as your child can utilize one of our drop-off/pick-up sites and adhere to the appropriate times, there should not be any issues if you live outside of Iredell County. ( Parks and Recreation - Camps - Iredell County )

Only $56 per household. That works out to only $1 per week or about what you pay for 1 soda or a bottle of water at a convenience store - that’s a great bargain.
