The Town’s two snow plows sit ready for the anticipated snowfall

“Governor Larry Hogan today signed an Executive Order declaring a state of emergency in Maryland, beginning Friday, January 22 at 7 a.m., in anticipation of a potentially historic storm which could bring up to two feet of snow and blizzard-like conditions.” For additional information on this State of Emergency Click Here .

With Governor Hogan placing Maryland under a State of Emergency due to the expected snow event, the Town has put the following parking restrictions into effect:

NO STREET PARKING- You may park on ODD-NUMBERED side of the street ONLY if unable to fit all vehicles in your driveway or lawn. Town plows need streets clear in order to remove snow effectively. Town Police will place notices on all vehicles parked on streets beginning Thursday evening, January 21, requesting that they be moved. Vehicles need to be removed from the street prior to snowfall to allow for effective pre-treatment.

The Town encourages all residents to follow the below guide lines during ALL snow event:

  • Please do not shovel snow into streets
  • Help your neighbors, check on elderly
  • Clear fire hydrants of snow & ice
  • Be prepared- be sure you have food, water, flashlights etc.
  • Don’t travel unless necessary!
