All City facilities are open today, July 14, 2022 and operating as normal. Power has been restored to City Hall; residents can use City Hall as a cooling center during business hours today.
Preparing Woody Debris for Collection
Due to the extreme amount of tree debris created by Tuesday's storm, the requirements to prepare woody debris for curbside collection are relaxed now through July 29, 2022. Please cut large diameter branches & limbs into sections no more than 8 feet in length. Please contact the City's Department of Public Works (240.487.3590) to let us the size and quantity of the material you set out the curb, as this will dictate the equipment sent to perform the collection.
Residential Parking Zones
Due to the weather emergency, the City is not issuing fines in residential parking zones through this weekend (7/17/22) unless the vehicle is presenting a public safety hazard like blocking the street or a fire hydrant. The City will still enforce pay-to-park parking and permits in the City's Downtown garage and Downtown area.
