Bay Restoration Fee Financial Hardship Exemption -- On May 26, 2004, Senate Bill 320 was signed into law, creating the Bay Restoration Fund (“BRF”). The purpose of the bill was to create a dedicated fund financed by wastewater treatment plant users to be used to upgrade Maryland’s wastewater treatment plants with enhanced nutrient removal (ENR) technology. On July 1, 2012, House Bill 446 increased the mandated BRF fee from $2.50 per month to $5.00 per month, and required that BRF fee billing authorities develop a financial hardship fee waiver plan for low income households.

Residents of the Town of Chesapeake Beach may apply directly to the Town for an exemption from the fee due to substantial financial hardship.

Public Service Announcement from the Calvert County Health Officer -- WATER CONTACT ADVISORY -- Vibrio Skin Infections have been reported to the Calvert County Health Department this summer.  Vibrio bacteria are natural inhabitants of warm, salty water. Since Vibrio species are normally found in the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers, do not enter these waters if you have any cuts or open wounds of the skin. Consult a health care provider if signs or symptoms of skin infection, such as redness, soreness, swelling or drainage occur following water contact.  Avoid gastrointestinal illness caused by Vibrio by making sure that shellfish are thoroughly cooked.

Reminder on Dogs -- According to the Calvert County Animal Control Ordinance, all dogs must be on a leash when not on your property. We have had a couple incidences recently where larger dogs got loose and attacked smaller dogs.  We do not want to impose any additional restrictions on these pets, so we ask that you take special care to see they are restrained at all times. If your dog has a tendency to be aggressive, we suggest you consider a muzzle.

Reminder on Requirement for Trash Receptacles:  According to Town Ordinance 200.3 (9) in part -- "No garbage, trash, or debris shall be placed out for collection except in proper storage receptacles.  Where collection is from a sidewalk or alley, receptacles shall be placed out no earlier than the evening preceding the day of collection...   Receptacles placed on a sidewalk or alley shall be promptly returned to the premises after collection...   Storage receptacles shall be made of a durable material and shall be watertight with tight-fitting covers to control odor and prevent animal access."

Chesapeake Beach receives a Banner City Award again for 2012 from the Maryland Municipal League (MML).  The MML annually awards designations of Banner City / Town to those cities and towns that have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to MML programs and activities through the involvement of their elected and appointed officials during the past year.   The Banner City / Town designation is MML’s highest city/town member achievement award.  The program is designed to encourage and reward exceptional participation in MML programs and activities and to foster teamwork among municipal officials to achieve program criteria.  It is meant to be a challenge that requires foresight and commitment from the municipality.

Calvert County (including Chesapeake Beach) was recognized as one of the "100 Best Communities for Young People" for the year 2012.  This competition identifies cities nationwide that have made the well-being of children and youth a priority. The 2012 winners were chosen from a pool of more than 320 nominees from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Winning communities hail from 42 states, which is a record for the competition.  The 100 Best Communities for Young People is now in its sixth cycle, recognizing communities making extraordinary efforts to reduce dropout rates and provide outstanding services and support to their youth.
