Hi Folks,

I met again with representatives of Potomac Edison, and we walked the power line causing all the problems.  Mayor Tome and I spent several hours with James Sears, First Energy/Potomac Edison President of Maryland Operations, Michael Hosier, General Manager of Regional Operations, and Dave Kline, Manager of External Affairs.  They sent a forester to the area, and he identified twenty (20) dead trees that need to be removed.  These trees are not in the right of way and are on Brunswick Crossing property.  Potomac Edison is working with Brunswick Crossing to get permission to cut these trees.  They are also working with their engineers to find a way to move the lower voltage line that serves us. One of the biggest problems is the cost of this.  I had invited Mr. Kline to attend our meeting on November 25; however he has another commitment and will be unable to attend.  Mr. Kline and Mr. Hosier will be at the Brunswick meeting on November 12. Mayor Tome has invited Rosemont residents to attend and hear what Potomac Edison plans to do.  This is a problem that affects both Brunswick and Rosemont.  We are working together, so feel free to attend the meeting.  I have asked Potomac Edison to send me a written plan of action that I can share at our November 25 Rosemont Village Meeting.  I will try to schedule them for our January meeting as well. 

Yard Waste

posted Dec 8, 2013, 2:04 PM by Beth Coyne

Last year, Rosemont residents were given a card with a number on it to use when they took yard waste to the Brunswick yard.  Brunswick is now going to require folks to show this card when dropping off yard waste.  If you don't have a card or can't find your card, call Dave Blackmon at 301-834-4673, and he will get one to you.

Newsflash from 10/16/13

posted Dec 8, 2013, 2:03 PM by Beth Coyne

BLACK BEAR sighted in Rosemont!  A black bear was observed wandering through yards on Rosemont Drive on the evening of October 15.  Frederick County Animal Control and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources have been alerted.

 

Advice from the DNR:

If a bear comes into your yard:

  • DON’T PANIC! DON’T SHOOT! DON’T APPROACH IT!
  • Back away slowly.
  • Go inside and wait for the bear to leave.
  • Most bears fear people and will leave when they see you.
  • If a bear woofs, snaps its jaws, slaps the ground or brush, or bluff charges: YOU ARE TOO CLOSE!
  • Learn to tolerate bears. Many bears are killed or injured when not causing problems.

If a bear refuses to leave:

  • Be sure you have allowed the bear an escape route.
  • Make loud noises to scare it away.

If a bear is treed:

  • LEAVE IT ALONE! The bear will usually go away when it feels safe.
  • Have people leave the area.
  • Remove your dog from the area.
