The EA can be viewed online and is also available at the Gaithersburg and Germantown Libraries and at the Montgomery County Council Office Building.

Right-of-Way Installations – Comment Sought
Legislation was introduced on August 21 to regulate installations in Gaithersburg’s public rights-of-way, particularly from companies looking to install telecommunications and wireless equipment and facilities. The regulations address all uses of rights-of-way to codify existing practices, but also to implement new standards for telecommunications facilities. A public hearing will be held on the matter on Monday, October 2 at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall. Comment can be made at the meeting or can be submitted in writing to [email protected]. Explore the topic here.

Deadline for Mayor, Council Candidates
Gaithersburg voters will go to the polls on Tuesday, November 7 to elect a Mayor and two City Council Members. The deadline for candidates to file for this election is 5 p.m., September 22. If you are interested in running for office you must submit an application that includes the signatures of at least 100 registered voters within the City of Gaithersburg.
