Today we have more ways to speak with one another than ever before. We are used to staying in touch with cell phones, internet, and email, but disasters can change things. These devices may not be available. Cell phone towers quickly become overloaded with people trying to reach friends and family. If the power is out at your home, cordless phones, internet, and email will not work either.

Visit http://do1thing.com/topics/communication for additional information and tips!

Tasks:

  • Have a phone with a cord and a car charger for your cell phone standing by in case of a power failure.
  • Develop a plan for how your family will stay in touch during a disaster.
  • Program In Case of Emergency (ICE) numbers into all family cell phones.

The roadwork on 14500 block of Elm Street in Downtown Upper Marlboro between Old Marlboro Pike (Rt 725) and the Upper Marlboro Post Office, is finally near completion but still may be closed to traffic, or will be at one-lane, throughout the remainder of this week and next week for the repaving & new sidewalk installation.

The Town of Upper Marlboro would like to remind residents to regularly mow their property to ensure compliance with the Town’s Residential Property Standards Ordinance 2016-03. A courtesy door-hanger notice will be left at properties not in compliance with the Town’s Property Standards Code as an initial warning.  If the code violation is not addressed within a week’s time, a letter will be mailed to the property owner.
