Distressing News Can Make Kids Worry

News coverage of tragic events is upsetting to both adults and children. Kids can worry that something similar could happen to them or their loved ones. It can also make them fear parts of daily life that they never worried about before. Talk to kids about what they see in the news, social media, or online.

BGE has assessed trees within the Town of Chesapeake Beach and found the area to be highly infected with Emerald Ash Borer beetles. The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an exotic pest of ash trees and has killed millions of this tree species already. For more information, click here .  Routine tree maintenance and removal began in January 2018 and will continue over the next month. There is a strong effort to remove infected ash trees to prevent the infections from spreading. BGE, through its contractor Lewis Tree Services, has already begun notifying individual property owners if they have trees targeted for maintenance. Residents can call 800-685-0123 at any time to make a report of a tree that may be of threat to the power lines. BGE greatly appreciates the Town and the residents for the cooperation as we work to maintain and improve reliability in the area.  Current regulations, arising from the Maryland Public Service Commission (PSC) Rule Making 43 proceeding (RM 43) following the enactment of the 2011 Maryland Electricity Service Quality and Reliability Act, require utilities to perform routine tree trimming and removals around BGE facilities as well as mowing along our transmission line rights-of-way.

Broadband Demand Survey Information Session starting February 2018

The Southern Maryland Minority Chamber of Commerce Foundation, in partnership with Last Mile Broadband of Maryland LLC, was awarded a Rural Maryland Council (RMC) grant, to conduct broadband demand surveys and high-level broadband network designs in Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s Counties.  Last Mile Broadband of Maryland LLC is the Lead on this project.  The Town of Chesapeake Beach was a Supporter of the RMC Grant.  The intent is to use the results of the surveys and engineering efforts to identify a town, city, area and/or development that would serve as a pilot project; in our efforts to bring affordable broadband services to rural communities.  The survey and engineering results would also serve as the catalyst for applying for the 2018 USDA broadband funding cycles.  We intend to begin the surveys in February 2018 and enlist your assistance in identifying areas in the Southern Maryland counties of Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s that can not only benefit from the providing of affordable broadband services; but also fit the criteria that will assist us with obtaining the public and/or private funding required to make bringing broadband services to rural communities a reality.

Electric Charging Station installed in North Beach

The Town of North Beach was awarded funding from the Department of Energy to encourage our residents to go electric by installing an electric charging station for the public. This electric charging station is a dual station that allows two vehicles to recharge at the same time. The station is now operational and is located on the town’s municipal parking lot near the corner of 7th Street and Chesapeake Avenue. The hourly rate for electric vehicle charging is $1.90/hr.
