Increased Patrols

In order to improve the quality of life in Keedysville and increase the safety of our streets, the Mayor & Council of Keedysville will be asking the Washington County Sheriff’s Department to increase patrols within the town. Among the infractions they will be focusing on are:

  • Failing to make a complete stop at stop signs;
  • Speeding
  • Parking in No Parking zones
  • Parking too close to fire hydrants
  • Patrols will also be on the lookout for any illegal activity

Please be considerate and observe all traffic laws.

Watershed Implementation Plan for the Chesapeake Bay

The Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE), acting on a directive from the U.S. EPA, has directed the counties of Maryland to work with the local jurisdictions to develop a plan to reduce the introduction of nitrogen, phosphorous and sediment into the local waterways, thereby ultimately reducing these elements in the Chesapeake Bay. You can help! Keedysville will receive credits toward these reductions for efforts by homeowners, i.e. rain barrels, rain gardens, etc. If you currently use these practices on your property, or if you install them at some point in the future, please contact Town Hall. For educational materials from MDE, please go to http://www.mde.state.md.us/programs/Marylander/outreach/Pages/MDEEducation.aspx. The MDE plan is located at: www.mde.state.md.us/programs/Water/TMDL/TMDLImplementation/Pages/FINAL_PhaseII_WIPDocument_Main.aspx.

Thefts

Please report any theft or any suspicious activity to the Washington County Sheriff’s Department (240-313-2100). We have a safe and peaceful community and would like to see it remain that way.
