Welcome to the North Carolina Local Government Document Warehouse. The purpose of this site is to make available to public officials throughout North Carolina examples of documents that have been developed by North Carolina local governments for their own use.


This is not a collection of documents that have been selected as models or best practices. It is up to each user of this website to review and evaluate documents contained in the warehouse to determine whether they are useful, appropriate, and legal for the user's particular need. Documents in this warehouse are contributed by local government agencies in North Carolina. They were not created by and have not been reviewed by School of Government faculty. We encourage users of this site to contact representatives of the jurisdiction that originated the document to find out about the background and use of the document, and any modifications of or updates to a document before using it.

The School of Government, by collecting and making these documents available, does not make any representation about their legal validity. We strongly recommend that you consult with your local attorney before using any document obtained from this site.
