By Authority Board of Election Supervisors Town of Chesapeake City, March 26, 2015
We need volunteers for the April 18 Beautification Day and the Town Yard Sale on May 9.
Time is 9am and meeting location is parking lot under the bridge next to the ball field by the Chesapeake City Elementary School.
To improve our water distribution system on April 6th The Town of Chesapeake City will be inspecting valves between the hours of 9am and 12 noon. In the process of the inspection adjacent fire hydrants will be flushed. This inspection is important to ensure the valves are in good working order in case of emergencies.
Do NOT do laundry on the day hydrants are flushed in your area. Flushing stirs up rust and you don’t want that in your washer. Also, if there is any discoloration in your faucet water, let it run for a few minutes, preferably from the tub spout, and it will clear up. The water is safe to drink.
If you have any questions, please call the Town Hall at 410 885 5298.
Know What’s Below; Call Before You Dig
SALISBURY, Md. – April is National Safe Digging Month and staying away from underground utility lines is as easy as 8-1-1. That is the underground utility locating service number to call before you put a shovel into the ground.
We want to make sure all boaters are safe and pass through our waters with no incidents. Please pass this along to any boaters that you know. Thank you!
For more information, please visit our Boaters section here.
Chesapeake City's own Dann Marine Towing Company was able use their tugboat and crew to secure the Northside floating dock when it broke loose and started floating down the canal as a result of heavy ice accumulation. Thank you Dann Marine!

Hopefully you’ve noticed the new tree plantings within the south side bridge loops at the base of the Chesapeake City Bridge – we think the areas look great! And they are going to look even better because the State Highway Administration is providing the Town with some flowering trees/shrubs for additional plantings in these areas, however, the Town has to provide the labor to plant them! Hence, the CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS!
The planting date is Saturday, April 18th (rain date Sat., April 25th) starting at 8:00 a.m. In addition to these plantings, other beautification projects will be occurring throughout Town that day provided we have enough volunteers. If you are interested in helping beautify the Town please sign-up to volunteer on April 18th by calling Town Hall at 410-885-5298 or sending an email to Sandra email@example.com.
Congratulations to the Town of Chesapeake City's dear friend Donnie Briscoe on his retirement. 41 Years with the Army Corp of Engineers. Enjoy!
