Labor Day Holiday 

The Town Office will be closed on Labor Day, Monday, September 7.  Household trash will not be collected on Monday, September 7, but will be collected on your next regularly scheduled trash day.  Yard trash will be collected on Tuesday, September 8.



Bulk Trash Collection Scheduled for September 14

In lieu of a regular Trash & Treasures event in September, the Town will offer curbside bulk trash collection on September 14.  A complete guide to the collection and to recycling and donation opportunities is available here and is included in the September issue of the Forecast newsletter. 



Parking Permits Extended One Year

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Town is extending all parking permits and guest passes until September 31, 2021.   All vehicles within a permit parking area must display a purple permit parking decal or guest pass with an expiration date of September 30, 2020.  Any resident who lives in a permit parking area and acquires a new vehicle during the next year should contact the Town office to request a permit parking sticker and guest pass.  Vehicles that do not display the most recent decals or guest passes will continue to be ticketed.  Call 301-654-7144 for more information.



2020 Election and Census 

Vote by Mail – November 3, 2020 Election
Ballots will not be mailed automatically to voters for the November 3, 2020 election, although applications for mail-in ballots will be mailed to the addresses on record for all registered Maryland voters.  To request a ballot before the applications are mailed, visit the Voter Registration and Mail-in Ballot page on the Maryland State Board of Elections website.  You must provide your complete information to verify your voter registration before a ballot can be mailed to you.

When applying for a ballot, choose to receive your ballot by mail.  The other types (internet or fax) are only recommended for overseas voters and voters with disabilities.  They require a bipartisan team of poll workers, or Election Judges, to review your ballot and hand copy your choices before your votes can be counted.  

If you request a ballot, please vote as soon as possible using that ballot.  Postage is prepaid, so you can return it by mail or at a Board of Elections drop box.  Voted ballots will also be accepted in the polling room at Early Voting Centers and Election Day Vote Centers. 

Montgomery County’s 11 Early Voting Centers will be open Monday, October 26 through Election Day, November 3.  Additional Vote Centers will open at the 25 MCPS High Schools on Election Day.  Voting hours will be 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at all locations.
       
Census 2020 – Response Deadline Moved Up to September 30
The US Census Bureau has moved up the self-response deadline for the 2020 Census to September 30.  Please take 10 minutes and complete your 2020 Census today!  To respond online, visit www.2020census.gov, or call 844-330-2020 to respond by phone. 



Signs in the Public Right-of-Way

Residents are reminded that the Town Code prohibits the placement of certain signs, including political signs, in the public right-of-way.  Signs for temporary events such as yard sales and open houses are allowed.  The public right-of-way is the area of land generally located between the street and a sidewalk or extending approximately six feet behind the curb if there is no sidewalk.  

If you have placed a sign in the right-of-way, as described above, please move it onto your private property.  Please contact the Town Office at 301-654-7144 if you have any questions



Please Clean Up After Your Pet 

The Town office has received complaints about dog waste being left on public areas in Town. The Town has installed numerous dog waste stations in Town.  A map can be found here.  We appreciate your cooperation in addressing this issue.
 


Please Prune Overgrown Vegetation


As a reminder, residents are asked to keep all streets and sidewalks clear of overgrown vegetation.  Please prune vegetation to ensure unobstructed sight lines for pedestrians and motorists.  The Town's vegetation maintenance standards are available for review here.  Thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep Town streets and sidewalks safe.
