No, tax value is based on current market values as of January 1st of the revaluation year. Property values are not adjusted up or down based on market conditions that occur between revaluation years.
The Land Records Section of the Listing Division maintains ownership records and the Residential/Commercial Appraisal Section of the Appraisal Division maintains value data. Listing and appraisals are maintained in accordance with North Carolina General Statutes. The taxpayer is responsible for notifying the Tax Department when improvements are made to real property; however, the Tax Department does obtain permit information from the various permitting entities within the County.
In a revaluation year tax value is reflective of current market value. Tax value is based on market data and market sales that occur up to the date of the revaluation. As time progresses and changes in the market occur, tax value becomes less and less of an indicator of current market value.
Obtaining a construction permit or recording mapping changes will result in a visit from an appraiser in most cases. At the time of the visit, the appraiser will review the entire property data to ensure accuracy. A taxpayer may also request a visit at anytime and recorded transactions whereby the sale amount falls outside a specified tolerance of the tax assessment may also result in an appraisal visit.
The most recent revaluation was effective January 1, 2023 and the next revaluation is scheduled for the year 2027 and every four (4) years thereafter unless market conditions indicate a different schedule is necessary or North Carolina General Statutes require a different schedule.
Dwellings, commercial buildings or any change to existing buildings that adds to the heated square footage; also, attachments such as decks, porches, patios, etc. are considered improvements as are storage buildings, pools, barns, etc.
“Mass Appraisal” method is used, which is the process of valuing a group of properties as of a given date, using standard methods, employing common data, and allowing for statistical testing. In determining value, all three approaches to value, cost, market, and income are considered.
The parcel mapping may be viewed using the Moore County GIS site. Also, each property’s Field Review Document and Property Record Card can be viewed using the GIS site. Taxpayers may also visit or call the Moore County Tax Department’s Customer Service office 1-910-947-2255 to review property information.
The Moore County Board of Commissioners consists of five members who are elected to serve staggered four-year terms. Each commissioner represents and resides in a district, but is elected at-large. The Board is the general governing body of the County and has three primary functions: 1) Establishment of overall fiscal policy through its taxing and spending powers; 2) Regulation of private conduct through its ordinance making powers; and 3) General administration.
The Board regularly meets twice monthly on the first Tuesday at 10:30am and the third Tuesday at 5:30pm. When a closed session is necessary, the Board may convene an hour earlier, but the public portion of the meeting would still be at 10:30am or 5:30pm, respectively. The Board does not hold the second meeting in December or the first meeting in July. In 2024, the January meetings will be on the second and fourth Tuesdays due to holidays. There is also a regular pre-agenda conference call attended by two commissioners the Wednesday before the regular meetings. Additional information regarding the meetings schedule is available on the commissioners' section of the County website, or by contacting the Clerk to the Board.
Unless specified otherwise, the Board holds its meetings on the 2nd floor of the Historic Courthouse in Carthage, North Carolina.
All meetings of the Board of Commissioners are open to the public.
The Board has a public comment period at the beginning of each meeting. Individuals may sign up to speak thirty minutes prior to the beginning of the meeting. The Chair will individually recognize speakers, who will be given three minutes to make comments. Click here for the public comment period procedures.
Visit the Agendas and Minutes section of the County website to view archived items. Call or email the Clerk to the Board for assistance.

No. While the Health Department is responsible for inspections, the license is actually issued by the NC Division of Child Development.
Yes, a placard is posted in each daycare showing the result of the inspection as: Superior, Approved, Provisional, or Disapproved. Child Care Center Rules offer more information on inspection results and guidelines for each grade.
You will need to speak with someone from Environmental Health to discuss your proposal. You will also need to discuss your plans with the building inspections office and fire marshal. If your proposed business is served by a well or septic system, additional investigations will be needed. You will also need to apply for a daycare license from the NC Division of Child Development.
You will need to contact the licensing agency, which is the Division of Facility Services in the NC Department of Health and Human Services.
You may speak to the manager of the facility about your concerns. If they are not addressed, feel free to contact our office to discuss the issues.
State operated hospitals are inspected by the Regional Environmental Health Specialist with the Division of Environmental Heath. County owned and private hospitals are inspected by county health departments.

FOG stands for Fats, Oils and Grease. It is a by-product of cooking found in most foods including meat fats, sauces, oils, butter, dairy, baking goods, and food scraps. For more detailed description please visit Division of Pollution Prevention and Environmental Assistance.
FOG is found anywhere food is prepared. Homes, restaurants and commercial kitchens all contribute to the problem.
FOG is not water soluble. Once it cools, it floats to the surface and starts accumulating in sewer lines. Additional grease and other debris worsen the problem, and eventually the pipe will become completely clogged and a sanitary sewer overflow may occur. FOG is a problem at the treatment plant also because grease interferes with the biological processes and reduces the treatment capacity.
Everyone. Sanitary sewer overflows are harmful to humans and the environment and are costly to clean up. Spills caused by grease can be prevented!
Never put grease down the drain! Read the Residential and Commercial FOG Information and the documents on this page for helpful tips. Inform friends and family of what they can do to help. Contact the Pretreatment Coordinator if you have any questions.
Residential homes and apartments do not need a trap/interceptor. All restaurants and other commercial or food service establishments (hospitals, rest homes, schools, grocery stores, etc.) that perform any type of food preparation must have a grease trap or interceptor. If you are unsure of the need or have any questions, contact the Pretreatment Coordinator.
Never pour grease down the drain. Let it cool and wipe out all cookware using a paper towel. Dispose of it in the trash.
For liquids, keep a container to pour cooled liquids into (examples: coffee can, soup can, jar with lid) then wipe out cookware. Dispose of the container in the trash.
Use your garbage disposal sparingly. Food scraps cause odors, and blockages and are a major contributor to FOG problems in the sewage collection system.
Used Fryer Oil (UFO) can be disposed of at all Moore County Compactor Sites, including the landfill.
You will need to check with the Environmental Health Office to see if the type of food service will require a permit. If so, you will be asked to submit an application, floor plan and specifications for the kitchen equipment. There may be other agencies, such as the building inspections office and the fire marshal, that will also need to be involved.
Each establishment that has a restaurant permit must be evaluated by a Registered Environmental Health Specialist (REHS)from the health department. The REHS makes an unannounced inspection to evaluate the restaurant for compliance with the regulations. The focus of the inspection is to ensure that the operation is practicing safe food preparation methods including refrigeration temperatures, hot-holding temperatures, cooking temperatures and cooling methods, food worker hygiene, and safe food sources. Any rule violations are summarized on an inspection sheet, and an overall score is computed. A perfect score is 100%. The inspection grades are then posted for public viewing at the establishment and can also be seen on the Internet.
In years past, restaurants were inspected four times per year. Beginning in 2007, a major change recognized that some businesses did not require inspections that often because of the nature of their menu and complexity of the food operations. Inspection frequency is now based on risk factors that require anywhere from 4 inspections to 1 inspection per year. These risk factors are based on cooking temperature, holding temperature, approved food sources and food handling practices that are essential for preventing foodborne disease.
The rules governing food-handling establishments require employees preparing food to wear disposable gloves or create a barrier between their hands and ready-to-eat food (deli paper, tongs, utensils,..). In either case, they must wash their hands prior to preparing the food.
Businesses that serve only ice cream, pre-packaged products or bakery items do not need a Health Department permit but must get a permit from the NC Department of Agriculture.
You will need to check with the event organizer first to get information from her or him regarding food sales. You will be filling out and submitting an application that gives details on your food booth.

All MRC volunteers need to undergo some form of orientation to the MRC, which includes an overview of the system in which the MRC's activities occur, whether in relation to emergency response or public health, or both.
Support/administrative volunteers receive guidance on how to perform their particular functions, which vary depending on the needs of particular communities. They may need to participate in practice drills if their duties interface with those of the front-line/direct-service volunteers. Overall, the training includes support skills training, communications, public speaking, and Incident Command Systems, or other local command systems.
Volunteers can also receive training in basic first aid, CPR, and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training.
MRC volunteers do not have to be available all the time. Some volunteers may only be interested in making a minimal commitment during times of crisis or for other specific community needs. These preferences are respected, given that they can be accommodated by the MRC unit's mission and work plan.
When you need a response from an emergency service, dial 911. This means if you need a police officer, the fire department, or an ambulance to come to you as soon as possible, you should dial 911.
Police/fire/medical dispatchers follow a predetermined set of questions/protocols. Based on your answers to these questions, we can determine the best response/level of care for you. For example, a heart attack will elicit a different response level than a broken arm, and a trash can fire will elicit a different response than a house fire.
No, by law automatically activated dialing and annunciation systems are prohibited from calling 911. The law requires access to the system to be initiated by a person. Your home alarm must go to an alarm monitoring company who will contact the Dispatch Center.
911 systems in the State of North Carolina provide for immediate translation services for all languages. Additionally, Moore County Dispatch has access to Language Line services providing translation for over 140 languages.
Moore County 911 Dispatchers are equipped with TDD detectors and can communicate with TDDs from their 911 workstation.
911 callers are not required to give their name/address/phone number to the dispatcher. You will never be forced to give your personal information. However, please keep in mind there may be times when officers/dispatchers require additional information from you after the call is disconnected (ex: more specific information to identify a location or update information that will affect an officer’s response). This is the main reason you will be asked to provide your name and call-back number.
If you choose to remain anonymous, it will not change the officer’s/deputy’s response to your call. All calls (911 and non-emergency) to the Communications Center are recorded. These recordings are held for a set period of time in case they are needed in a later investigation.
When your call is received, the information is relayed to the appropriate dispatcher with a priority attached. All calls are prioritized to maximize the safety of the responders and the citizens. Calls received earlier may need to be held in order to have officers/deputies respond to life-threatening incidents. Calls with a higher priority are usually in progress. Some examples of these are:
Do not hang up. Instead, inform the dispatcher that you have reached the wrong number. If you do hang up, the Communications Center will call back the number to make sure everything is alright. If there is no answer or a busy signal, a law enforcement officer will be dispatched. This will needlessly take resources away from genuine emergencies.
A 911 Center can only dispatch agencies belonging to its jurisdiction. Where you are calling from could be in one jurisdiction, and the location in which an incident occurred could be another. The Moore County 911 Communications Center can only dispatch for the law and/or fire and rescue departments we serve.
For example, if you are shopping at a store in Southern Pines and, upon returning to the parking lot, discover that someone had "keyed" your vehicle. Instead of calling the police at that time, you return to your residence in Aberdeen, and call 911 to report the damage. The dispatcher answering the phone will ask where your vehicle was when the damage occurred. When you state "in Southern Pines", the dispatcher will have to transfer your call to the Southern Pines Police Department, because Southern Pines Police is not an agency dispatched out of the Moore County 911 Center. In this instance, you may have to return to the Southern Pines city limits to meet with the officer to make a report.
Many 911 hang-up calls are made by children playing with the telephone. Each time a 911 hang-up call is received, the dispatcher must immediately call back the phone number to determine if there is an emergency. If there is no answer on callback, law enforcement personnel will immediately be dispatched to check the well-being of any persons at the location.
If, on call-back, there is an answer, the dispatcher will question the person (an adult) who answers the phone to determine if an emergency exists. Dispatchers have been trained to "pick up" on any unusual noises or voice inflections to determine if there is a problem at a location without the caller actually advising the dispatcher.
If a child answers the phone on a call-back, the dispatcher will request to speak to an adult to ensure that everything is okay. Some children are too young to understand what we need (give the phone to an adult), so the dispatcher will still send an officer to respond.
We ask that adults do not punish children who call 911 and then hang up, but rather explain to them that 911 should only be used in an emergency. If children are punished for dialing 911, it may scare them from using it in the future, whether they have a legitimate emergency or not. Moore County 911 Communications also is available to do tours for children (and adults) so they are able to have a better understanding of 911 (call 910-947-6317).
An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device that analyzes the victim's condition and, if warranted, delivers an electric shock to the heart to reverse sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).
When someone collapses from SCA, immediate CPR and the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) are essential for any chance of recovery. These devices are failsafe and will not cause injury to the user, nor will they deliver a shock if none is needed. For patients with ventricular fibrillation (VF) studies show that if early defibrillation is provided within the first minute, the odds are 90% that the victim’s life can be saved. After that, the rate of survival drops 10% with every minute. As many as 30% to 50% of SCA victims would likely survive if CPR and AEDs were used within five minutes of collapse.
The American Heart Association supports implementing the chain of survival to rescue people who suffer a cardiac arrest in the community. The adult chain of survival consists of:
Reasons to purchase an AED include:
HeartSafe Moore County has established policies, procedures, and plans for the effective use of AEDs and will assist with training, maintenance, and long-term monitoring of the device.
A host of undetected cardiac problems exist within any sizeable school population, and some school activities (especially athletics) may exacerbate these difficulties:
Even schools for young children have many adults present every day. Teachers, custodians, office staff, and volunteers are among those whose lives will be protected through the placement of an AED.
Schools provide a natural placement option for public access defibrillation (PAD) programs. While hospitals and other public buildings tend to be located in population centers, the more uniform distribution of schools puts life-saving technology nearer to those residents most at risk for long delays from EMS.
Schools serve as central gathering points within the community. Whether it is parents attending a school concert or play or everyone in town attending a basketball or football game, it is hard to imagine an institution that more regularly attracts large numbers of people for extended periods of time.
There is educational value in placing AEDs in schools. Primary-level teachers can make their pupils aware of what they are and how they are used. Secondary teachers can integrate CPR and AED instruction into the curriculum. The more familiar children are with AEDs, the greater the likelihood that they will use them in the event of a cardiac emergency.
