Water Tower Maintenance

The Town will be working with Southern Corrosion to have regular maintenance performed on the Town’s water tower over the next few weeks. On Monday, October 3, some preliminary work will take place to test the system. As soon as the remaining work is scheduled, it will be posted here. The remaining work is anticipated to take approximately 5 days.

While the work is being performed, you may notice that your water is slightly discolored and/or has some sediment in it. If this does happen, let the water run until it is clear. The water will still be safe to consume and use as you normally do.

Keedysville SR 34 Safety Concerns: Click here to sign the petition today.

Resident Christy Postell has created a petition to give voice to concerns many residents share about the safety of intersections at SR 34 in Keedysville. Her proposal and request is that the heavy traffic intersection of Coffman Farms Road and Shepherdstown Pike be changed to a double line, no passing zone, and that the State would consider additional measures as appropriate to slow traffic. Bonnie Hawker, owner of the Red Byrd, has also seen many bad accidents at Taylor Dr, and asks the State Highway Dept to make it a no passing zone for the same reasons. Keedysville’s Mayor and Council fully support these changes and have been trying to persuade the State for many years. Add your name to the petition today!
