Village Services

As a service to its citizens, Chimney Rock Village provides its code of ordinances and regulations online. Codification is a process of organizing and arranging all legislation of a general and permanent nature into a Code, also known as a “Code of Ordinances.”

Municipal services refer to the services that citizens of Chimney Rock Village receive in exchange for the taxes they pay. These Village Services are outlined below:

The village's drinking water comes from a large well at the end of Terrace Drive in Chimney Rock Village.

Beginning in the Spring of 2024, James and James Environmental operate the water system. They invoice, collect for water use, and coordinate water connections. They read meters, address questions or issues, and respond to damage, water line breaks, and any immediate needs. They make all required reports to the State of North Carolina and are licensed in North Carolina for the operation of private and public water systems.

Sewer rates are invoiced and collected by the Town of Lake Lure for any customers in Chimney Rock Village who are connected to the sewer system. 

Beginning in July 2024, sewer customers who are within the Village municipal limits or connected west of the Geneva Motor Court will receive a Chimney Rock general maintenance fee. The fee will be in addition to the treatment fee charged by the Town of Lake Lure.

The fees are as follows:
