Upcoming Town Meetings and Important Town Notices

Come see the Pop Up exhibit “Entertaining Our Troops – Vietnam”  by Spam & Bubba in our Town Hall lobby.  This is a tribute to the men and women who were responsible for supporting morale and welfare activities for America’s in-country armed forces during the Vietnam war and the nearly 3,000 celebrities who gave of their time and talent to entertain our troops in Vietnam.

PUBLIC NOTICE:  Safe Routes to School Design: The Town of Chesapeake Beach has hired Brudis & Associates, Inc. (BAI) to prepare engineering plans for the construction sidewalk along MD 261 (Bayside Road) from Old Bayside Road to Chesapeake Village Boulevard, and along Old Bayside Road from F Street to MD 261 (Bayside Road). We request your permission to have BAI’s surveyors and engineers temporarily enter your property for the purpose of establishing survey lines, property boundaries, geotechnical investigation, and conducting engineering analysis related to the proposed sidewalk improvements. This work is necessary for the project and we ask for your cooperation. The surveyors and engineers will exercise every precaution to minimize any disturbance to your property and privacy.  Please note that the Annotated Code of Maryland (Real Property Code: Title 12, Subtitle 1, Section 12-111) grants land surveyors permission to enter private property to gather information. The surveyors, who are both courteous and highly qualified, will make every effort to perform their work with the least inconvenience to you.  If you have any questions, please contact Town Hall at (410) 257-2230.

Let’s talk trash!  “The Town of Chesapeake Beach Code requires that all trash storage receptacles shall be made of durable material and shall be watertight with tight fitting covers to control odor and prevent animal access.  No garbage, trash or debris shall be placed out for collection except in proper receptacles.”  Due to the excessive rains this summer, the trash company has been finding trash cans full of water along with being full of trash.  This causes the cans to be so heavy that they can’t physically be picked up.  The company has begun a no tolerance policy and will not collect the trash if the can is full of water.  You must properly cover your containers to avoid this and to ensure pick up.  Also, please do not use the Town provided recycle bins for regular trash; that will also prevent your trash from being collected.  We appreciate your attention and help with these matters as we strive to keep Chesapeake Beach beautiful.
