Updates and changes to these service modifications, including any extension of these closures, will be circulated via blast email and posted to the homepage of the Village’s website.
Primary Election Rescheduled— The Primary Election in Maryland has been postponed. The county’s Board of Elections has set June 2, 2020 as the new Primary Election date; however, we are awaiting confirmation as to whether the election will be held “in person”.
IRS Filing, Payment Deadlines Extended— As of Friday, March 20, the Internal Revenue Service’s filing and payment deadlines for 2019 federal individual and corporate income taxes have been extended to July 15, 2020. The State of Maryland has also extended its filing and payment deadline to July 15 for individual and corporate income tax.
Village officers who will continue to interact with the public are adhering to prevention efforts, including politely avoiding handshakes, maintaining social distance, sanitizing vehicles and work spaces, and staying home when feeling ill.
Thank you for your understanding and support as we have taken steps to protect our staff, and the community and public we serve, by closing down the Village Hall and placing eligible employees in a telework status. A special thanks to our police and Communications Center personnel who have continued to report to work every day to ensure continued public safety operations.
