Dogs in Keedysville
Recently, there have been some issues with dogs encroaching on properties where they should not be, whether leashed or unleashed. Also, there have been residents walking their dogs and not cleaning up after them. Both practices are against the law and are just not very neighborly. Please, either keep your dog on your property, or have it leashed and, please, clean up after your pet. Thank you.
Street sweeping for will take place on Wednesday, June 12th. If available, please move vehicles to off-street parking.
Know Your Utility Locations
With winter approaching all residents should consider where some important pieces to the utilities are located on their property. Specifically, everyone should know where their water meter, their sewer grinder pump and their sewer clean out are located and they may want to mark each of them with a stake. Should there be a snow fall that covers these components and one of them malfunctions, having them clearly marked with a stake, will enable the utility workers to find and repair the problem more quickly. Please consider taking a few minutes and marking each of these components with a stake. If you have any questions, please contact Keedysville Town Hall Monday-Friday, 8:00am to noon.
Watershed Implementation Plan for the Chesapeake Bay
The Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE), acting on a directive from the U.S. EPA, has directed the counties of Maryland to work with the local jurisdictions to develop a plan to reduce the introduction of nitrogen, phosphorous and sediment into the local waterways, thereby ultimately reducing these elements in the Chesapeake Bay. You can help! Keedysville will receive credits toward these ralph lauren reductions for efforts by homeowners, i.e. rain barrels, rain gardens, etc. If you currently use these practices on your property, or if you install them at some point in the future, please contact Town Hall. There will be more information coming. The MDE plan is located at: www.mde.state.md.us/programs/Water/TMDL/TMDLImplementation/Pages/FINAL_PhaseII_WIPDocument_Main.aspx.
