There have been several concerns raised about the new pedestrian lighting on Main Street. The Mayor and Council have had many conversations with residents and on Saturday, March 14th a test of several options for the lights were tested on South Main Street. Stemming from that test, lights will be dealt with individually. Dimmers will be installed to lessen the brightness of the lights where needed. Also, the lights may be directed in different directions where needed. Currently, the newly lit lights on North Main Street are being put through a “30-day burn”, during which the lights are left on and being tested for any problems. Lastly, some of the overhead gooseneck street lights, where no longer needed, will be removed once the SHA Main Street project is complete.

Know Your Utility Locations

During winter, all residents should consider where some important pieces to the utilities are located on their property. Specifically, everyone should know where their water meter, their sewer grinder pump and their sewer clean out are located and they may want to mark each of them with a stake. Should there be a snow fall that covers these components and one of them malfunctions, having them clearly marked with a stake, will enable the utility workers to find and repair the problem more quickly. Please consider taking a few minutes and marking each of these components with a stake. If you have any questions, please contact Keedysville Town Hall Monday-Friday, 8:00am to noon.

Water & Sewer Billing

Water and sewer services are provided and billed by two separate entities. Water service and billing is provided by the Boonsboro Keedysville Regional Water Board (BKRWB). Sewer service and billing is provided by the Washington County Department of Water Quality. Both services are billed quarterly and based on water usage. Please be sure to send your payments to the appropriate provider. Sending your payment to the wrong provider could cause delays in your payment being received and result in late fees. The BKRWB may be contacted at 301-432-5141. The Wash. Co. Dept. of Water Quality may be contacted at 240-313-2317.
