Posted on September 1, 2019
September means school is back in session. Be sure to review our back to school tips below. For parents dropping off students at Stephen Decatur Middle and High Schools, please allow extra time for the new traffic pattern on Seahawk Road.
There are a number of events scheduled over the next few months, including one of my favorites, Touch A Truck on October 5th from 10 am until noon at Stephen Decatur Park. Miss Utility of Delmarva will join us this year. This event is a great opportunity to check out vehicles used by the Electric, Water Resources, Public Works and Police Departments. We’ll have exhibits, K9 demonstrations and food available for purchase.
I’m sure you’ve seen Town utility employees reading meters every month. Recently, we’ve had some challenges accessing water meters that are covered by growing plants and shrubs. We have pictures of some examples below. Please take a minute to make sure your water meter is easy to access. If you need help locating your meter, or have any questions please call 410-641-2414. We appreciate your help.

Water Meter Access
Water Resources has had difficulty accessing some residents meters in Town. Please remember to clear all grass, brush, and debris from your meter pit area and remember not to park over your meter. This will ensure that Water Resources can get an accurate reading of your meter for your bill. The photo on the right shows three meters that are inaccessible/difficult to access, and one that is easily accessible.
If you need help locating your meter to ensure you are in compliance, or have any questions please call 410-641-2414.
Slow Down: Back to School
Sharing the Road: Tuesday, September 3rd is the first day of school in Worcester County and school days bring changes to traffic: please pay attention!
Take extra care to look out for children and never pass a vehicle stopped for pedestrians. If you’re driving behind a bus, allow a greater following distance than if you were driving behind a car. It is illegal in all 50 states to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children. Be alert; children often are unpredictable, and they tend to ignore hazards and take risks.
For more information about how you, or your child, can be safer on our roads year-round, please visit the National Safety Council website . We hope everyone has a safe school year!
