OCEAN CITY, Md. - Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan has lifted the Declaration of Emergency.
The declaration was made this past 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 The order to close the beach is no longer in effect and the Inlet Lot is currently open for residents and visitors. Services, including trash pick-up and transportation, have been restored to normal schedules.
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 November 5 and November 6. No storm related debris collection will take place this weekend, Saturday, November 3 and Sunday, November 4.
