Coffee with a Cop is Oct. 4; RCPD Open House is Oct. 14

Call it joe, java or jitter juice, the Rockville City Police Department will answer the call and join community members for National Coffee with a Cop Day from 8-9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 4 at Starbucks, 39 Maryland
Rockville will vacuum leaves from neighborhood curbs in two rounds, beginning Monday, Oct. 16. Rake leaves next to, but out of, the roadway and bike lanes, and away from parked vehicles. Leaves should be raked by 6 a.m. on the first day of their collection period, but no earlier than one week before the collection dates to avoid grass damage or fire hazards. Remove sticks and other objects from leaf piles. Avoid parking near leaf piles or other vehicles.
After the collection period ends, use biodegradable paper lawn bags or 32-gallon trash cans (without plastic garbage bags) to set leaves out on your refuse and recycling collection day. Use alternative methods such as mulching or composting. Do not dump leaves, grass clippings or other yard waste into storm drains or streams.
Ride On will launch a new, limited stop, higher-speed bus service on Route 355 beginning Oct. 2.

New bus shelters and bus stop flag signs will identify Ride On extRa bus stops. Continue reading “Ride On extRa Launches on MD 355 in October”
