Small Cell Facilities
Recently, Gaithersburg Mayor Jud Ashman joined eleven mayors from nine states as part of the United States Conference of Mayors to call on Congress and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to preserve local zoning and right of way protections with respect to cell towers and small cell sitings. The statement comes as the FCC recently opened two docket proceedings that, if adopted, would deny local governments the authority to manage their rights-of-way and determine where wireless infrastructure is sited.

Snow Emergency | Neighborhood Trash Pickup

Hello Neighbors,

Gaithersburg Snow Emergency
As most of you should already know, the City of Gaithersburg has declared a Snow Emergency for this evening (March 13th) and tomorrow (March 14th.) You can read more about how this affects residents of the City, Snow Emergency Routes, Cancellations, and other important related information on the City’s web site, here.

Additionally, our neighborhood trash vendor has issued a statement with regards to expected trash schedules this week due to the impacts of the storm. That statement follows below, for your reference:

A Message from Potomac Disposal Regarding Trash Pickup Schedules:

As you know, the area is under a significant winter storm watch as of Monday evening, through Tuesday and possibly into Wednesday. This could turn into a major snow/ice event. If the prognosticators are correct, we may not be able to return to service until *Thursday. If that is the case, communities with Tuesday/Friday service will be picked up on Friday although it is possible that with the added capacity and transfer station time restraints some may not be serviced until Saturday. Communities with Wednesday/Saturday service will be picked up Saturday. We always err on the side of caution in situations like these to ensure the safety of the residents and our crews. *If service roads are clear of snow and ice.

Residents can check for updates on possible delayed services due to the storm by visiting our website at www.potomacdisposal.com. The announcements will be on the right side of the home page.

We thank you in advance for your understanding during difficult situations like these. We will try our hardest to get caught up once the streets are safely passable. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Thank you,
Glenn Watts
Board of Directors, Washingtonian Woods HOA
