E-Z Call Program

Working Together Works

Seeing the need in the community for an anonymous program where citizens could call in complaints and not be asked their name or phone number, Mayor Pro-Tem Ivory Mewborn created the E-Z Call Program and proposed it to the Ayden Town Board, which endorsed it. E-Z Call cards are being distributed in neighborhoods, as well as available in local stores, throughout Ayden to provide all an opportunity to report suspicious activities anonymously. Each card comes with a convenient smaller key tag as well, so that residents can report crimes outside of their home or neighborhood. The E-Z Call program sends out a strong message to criminals that our citizens will not tolerate criminal activity in Ayden. Together we can make a difference in our community.

Random Acts of Kindness

The Town of Ayden Governing Board approved the Random Acts of Kindness program, created and proposed by Mayor Pro-Tem Ivory Mewborn, at its October 24, 2016 board meeting. The purpose of this program is to foster stronger community relations through random acts of kindness.

The components of the program are as follows:

  • To qualify for the monthly “Random Act of Kindness Award” the name and a brief account of their act of kindness must be submitted by someone other than themselves to the Town Manager in writing.
  • The winner will be chosen by a vote of the Board of Commissioners.
  • The town will submit a picture and brief bio to the local newspaper on the recipient’s perspective regarding the improvement of community relations.
  • Honoree’s name and deed will be mentioned in the town’s monthly newsletter and their picture will be included on our website for one month.
  • This will qualify them as a contestant to receive the annual “Random Act of Kindness Award” which will be chosen through Ayden’s Board of Commissioners and Chamber of Commerce.
  • Ask Ayden-Grifton High School to announce the person’s name and deed at our high school ball games.
