All previously announced openings and timelines remain. Residents may call 301-600-6972 for the latest information regarding programs and facilities.

Since declaring a State of Emergency on March 13, 2020, Mayor Michael O’Connor and The City of Frederick have been committed to maintaining operations that are critical to the life, health, and safety of our residents. The City has also focused on the delivery of all additional City services through alternative means to keep City employees and the public safe.
