Halloween proclamation adopted


A night of tricking or treating is close at hand.

The town’s board of commissioners adopted a Safety First on Halloween proclamation during its recent monthly meeting. Parents are asked to supervise the trick or treat activities of their children and insure that it’s limited to costumed kids under 16 years old.

Local residents can visit neighborhoods Oct. 30 from 6-8 p.m.

Those who will have treats are asked to leave on a porch light.

Commissioners remind parents that homes with no outdoor lights shining should be passed.

Parents should follow the “if in doubt, throw it out” rule when inspecting their children’s candy.

“These guidelines are set for in the hope that all citizens of Mount Olive will enjoy a happy, safe and orderly Halloween,” said Mayor Ken Talton.
