Be Wary of Door-to-Door Energy Sales

From time to time, the Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative (SMECO) will be notified by members of the public, law enforcement and elected officials that representatives from alternative energy suppliers are going door to door to solicit business. Maryland is a deregulated state for electric supply so customers can choose an alternative supplier of energy.

However, the BOCC wishes to inform constituents that individuals going door to door are not “working on behalf of SMECO.” These companies are licensed to do business in SMECO’s service territory, but neither SMECO nor the county have any relationship with them. Customers are encouraged to contact SMECO with questions about the cost of electric service and are warned to never divulge account numbers or other private information to a door-to-door solicitor. For information, please contact SMECO’s customer service line on 888-440-3311.



Mosquito Control Program

The Calvert County Department of General Services Mosquito Control Program will be setting specialized mosquito traps in neighborhoods throughout the county to monitor adult mosquito populations. These canister-shaped traps are white or black and are about the size of a five-gallon bucket with wires and a battery attached. They are labeled “Calvert County Mosquito Control (410) 535-6924.” See the photo below.

Public messages have gone out to ensure the traps are not perceived to be suspicious packages. Please help spread the word. Residents are encouraged not to touch or disturb traps if they see them. Questions can be directed to the Mosquito Control Program at mosquitocontrol@co.cal.md.us.

Mt. Hope Convenience Ctr Expansion Begins

A $2.6 million expansion project is now underway at the Mt. Hope Convenience Center that will improve traffic flow, increase services and enhance safety at the site.

The 12-month project, overseen by the Calvert County Department of Public Works, will enlarge the center and include new traffic patterns allowing the exchange of full bins without disrupting convenience center users. The center remains at its 96 Pushaw Station Road location in Sunderland.

New features at the center will include covered recycling areas and raised platforms adjacent to the bins affording easier access for offloading. The center will remain open throughout construction, though residents may experience periodic delays as work continues.

The salt dome at the site will be relocated to the area where the current convenience center stands.
