O.C. Lifts Declaration of Emergency

Posted:

OCEAN CITY, Md.- Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan has lifted the declaration of emergency that had been in effect in the resort town since Sunday in anticipation of Hurricane Sandy.  

The order to close the beach is no longer in effect and the Inlet lot is currently open for residents and visitors.

Town of Ocean City services, including trash pick-up and transportation, have been restored to normal schedules.

Officials said that in addition, the state of Maryland currently has a contractor on the beach that is responsible for debris removal, clean up, sand fence replacement and dune crossover repair for the entire beach north of 27th Street.

Residents and businesses who wish to discard storm-related debris can place debris on the curb, where citizens normally place trash (out of the way of driveways, street ways and fire hydrants) and Public Works employees will conduct pickup on Nov. 5 and Nov. 6.

No storm-related debris collection will take place this weekend, Saturday, Nov. 3 and Sunday, Nov. 4.

Currently, representatives from the Town of Ocean City's Emergency Services staff and Ocean City Community Emergency Response Team volunteers are on scene in Crisfield to assist their community as needed. The formal request of assistance, which came from the state of Maryland, was to primarily offer support with the sheltering operation and serving as a point of distribution for food and water. In addition, the Ocean City Volunteer Fire Department has sent three volunteers and a utility pick-up to assist with Somerset County's Hazmat operation.
