MEDIA RELEASE

UPDATE – January 26th @ 10:45 AM - Status of Post Snow Event in City of Frederick
City Snow Emergency Plan Remains in Effect, City Government Closed Wednesday, January 27th and Parking Decks Open for Free Parking until 6:00 AM on Thursday, January 28th

Frederick, MD – January 26, 2016 @ 10:45 AM: The City of Frederick appreciates your patience as we deal with the aftermath of this unique and challenging snow event.

Our main concern is the safety of our citizens and City employees. We are asking residents to continue to stay off the roads as much as possible. We are also asking that citizens not attempt to walk on the streets. Although many sidewalks are not clear, walking on the roadways is extremely dangerous. The City plow trucks are very large and have a hard time seeing people in the street. Do not let children play in large snow piles on corners or in parking lanes or parking lots.

Due to weather related conditions, the City Snow Emergency Plan will remain in effect until further notice.

We have added a link to report plowing issues on the City's website. The link can be found at http://md-frederick.civicplus.com/FormCenter/General-Problem-11/Report-Snow-Plowing-Issues-76

All five City parking garages will remain open for free parking until 6:00 AM on Thursday, January 28th.

In addition, City Government Offices will be closed on Wednesday, January 27th.

Talk with the Mayor Tuesday scheduled for today, January 26th has been cancelled.


January 25, 2016: 11:00 AM - Due to the recent snow event All Trash/Yard Waste Collection Services have been suspended until Monday, February 1, 2016.

The regular collection schedule will resume on Monday, February 1, 2016.
(For Monday, February 1st collection, pleased set out Sunday, January 31st after 5:00pm and before 12:00 Midnight for the Monday Collection)

Please refer to all City Media sites for any and all updates and schedules.

For Residential Recycle-Please refer to the Frederick County schedule**

If you have questions regarding trash and yard waste collection, please contact the City switchboard at 301-600-1440. Updates will be posted on City Media sites.
For residential recycling, please refer to the Frederick County schedule.

If your street hasn't been plowed yet, DPW Snow Crews ask you NOT to dig your car out yet.

The City Snow Emergency Plan remains in effect at this time.

Please use extreme caution on exit ramps especially on left and right turn lanes that are blocked with high banks of snow.

As you walk by buildings and under overpasses please be aware of falling and breaking ice cycles overhead, and exercise caution.

In a team effort to expedite the snow clearing process, Mayor McClement asks residents to please clear snow from around fire hydrants, street corners that are handicap accessible and storm drains to prevent flooding and ice formation on City streets.

The DPW Snow Team crews are working diligently and will continue to push snow overnight clearing all areas as quickly as possible. The City of Frederick thank you for your patience as we work together through this historic snow fall.

For road conditions, call 511, monitor your local media outlets, or go to www.marylandroads.com for current conditions.

Please be aware of possible down trees and power lines. Report downed and low hanging power lines by calling 1.800.686.0011 and do not attempt to cross over or under the lines. Report downed trees by calling 301.600.1440.
