In Person and Drop Box Payments:

As a result of COVID-19 guidelines and to protect our Staff, Town Hall ceased accepting in person payments on March 16th.  We sent out a CodeRed message on March 18th, explaining payment options;  

1. Drop Box (Checks, Money Orders, Cash) at the front of Town Hall. 

2. Online Payment.

Online Payments:

The Town is encouraging residents to pay online and in an effort to help accommodate anyone who wishes to do so, we are temporarily waiving the transaction fees associated with online payments. The Town will continue to absorb these fees until further notice. Thank you for your participation in the online payment process especially during this difficult time of social distancing. With everyone doing their part, this too shall pass.


Nestled away in the foothills of North Carolina, Sawmills has qualities that are appealing to both its citizens and visitors alike. From the beautiful scenery of the surrounding area to the hospitable people of our town, you will feel warm, welcome, and at home.

Sawmills has been able to retain its southern small town charm, while emerging as a destination bedroom community. With several regional companies locating here, we consider ourselves to be a business friendly community.

This is a place where you can enjoy small town living, while being only a short drive away from much larger cities such as Charlotte, Asheville, and Winston Salem.

Our streets are safe and our establishments are welcoming. Businesses thrive here and family comes first. We are truly a town with a future. If you have never been to our friendly town, consider yourself invited.
