Dear Residents,

Mother Nature likes to remind us occasionally that she is in control. So today, snow came in earlier and in greater quantities than expected. One Public Works shift reported to work before 2:00 AM this morning and a second shift will be treating the roads though the evening until conditions are safe. We anticipate that warmer temperatures and rain will get rid of the snow tomorrow.

However, road conditions are expected to worsen this evening as freezing rain moves into the area. Please stay off the roads between 5:00 PM and midnight, if possible.

Because our staff will be working late tonight, trash, recycling and food waste collection may begin later in the morning than usual tomorrow (Tuesday, February 16). We’ll post any weather-related schedule changes on the City’s website and through the Takoma Park Alert system.

Stay warm and safe!

Suzanne Ludlow
City Manager
