Let’s talk trash!  “The Town of Chesapeake Beach Code requires that all trash storage receptacles shall be made of durable material and shall be watertight with tight fitting covers to control odor and prevent animal access.  No garbage, trash or debris shall be placed out for collection except in proper receptacles.”  Due to the excessive rains this summer, the trash company has been finding trash cans full of water along with being full of trash.  This causes the cans to be so heavy that they can’t physically be picked up.  The company has begun a no tolerance policy and will not collect the trash if the can is full of water.  You must properly cover your containers to avoid this and to ensure pick up.  Also, please do not use the Town provided recycle bins for regular trash; that will also prevent your trash from being collected.  We appreciate your attention and help with these matters as we strive to keep Chesapeake Beach beautiful.
Please be sure to put your trash and recycling out the evening before your pick up. The trash company will begin pick ups at 5:00 am due to the summer heat, and this will continue through September.
B Street Slope Assessment and the Beach Boardwalk Closure – The Town has contracted a geotechnical engineer to provide a global stability analysis of the  B street slope after the slope has showed signs of deterioration and damaged the Boardwalk. The geotechnical engineer has provided September 7th as the expected completion date for the analysis. Once reviewed, the Town will have a better understanding of the work that is needed to ensure the boardwalk is safe to repair and reopen to the public. We thank you for your patience while this review takes place.  SEE September 19…
