Here are some helpful tips to keep you and your home comfortable during this winter season.
- To keep your pipes from freezing, turn off all outside spigots and insulate the pipes to protect them from the freezing temperatures.
- To prevent water damage in your home, so you don't experience a burst pipe, locate all the water shut off valves. Don't wait for someone else to turn it off. The delay could cause major water damage.
- As far as snow removal in the town, streets will not be plowed unless there is a 2 inch accumulation. The snow removal equipment cannot withstand clearing the street for a trace of snow.
- When shoveling out your driveway pile the snow in your yard not in the streets and always pile it to the left side of your driveway. This prevents the snow from being pushed back in your driveway from the street.
- During snow storms park as many cars as you can in the driveway to make snow removal easier. It may also prevent your vehicle from being damaged by other vehicles on the roads.
- EMERGENCY ROUTES are a priority when removing snow, secondary roads and alleys are last. You must be patient the crews will get to your area as soon as possible.
- Lastly, your safety and the safety of our snow removal crews are our number one concern. Let's do all we can to keep everyone out of harm's way.

Bay Restoration Fund Facts - From the Office of Comptroller Peter Franchot - In the 2004 legislative session, the Maryland State Government took a major step to protect our waterways through the enactment of the Bay Restoration Fund (Senate Bill-320). The purpose of the bill was to create a dedicated fund to improve the environment and water quality of the Chesapeake Bay. Through an environmental surcharge fee, this fund is used to upgrade wastewater treatment plants, upgrade septic systems in the critical area, and implement cover crops on agricultural land. The Town of Denton has initiated a BRF hardship exemption policy. CLICK HERE to get all details concerning this policy as well as an application to apply.
