Turkey Trot 2023

2023 Emmitsburg Turkey Trot was a HUGE success!!!!!
We want to thank everyone who participated in this event. Without you, the event would not have been such a great turnout! 
We would also like to thank everyone that volunteered their time to help on Thanksgiving. Without each of you, we wouldn't have been able to pull off a great event. We didn't expect to have such a big turnout and we apologize for not being able to get everyone their t-shirt, medal or swag bag. 
Great news is.........Your items are coming. 
Commissioner O’Donnell will be handing out the swag bags, medals, and t shirts that participants are owed from participating in the Turkey Trot this year. He’s hosting 2 nights of distribution, Thursday December 14th from 6:45pm to 8 pm, and Thursday January 18th from 6:45pm to 8pm. Both days will take place in the meeting room at the Emmitsburg Library. 
Thank you again for such a great event! We look forward to next year!
Mayor and Town Staff. 

Sewage Procurement

The Mayor and Town Manager authorized Synagro to pump out the wet well at the pump station, haul away sewage, provide labor and provide a backup pump until repairs can be made to our pump.  On November 21st and 22nd the Town received a significant amount of rain in a short period of time.   Unfortunately, the pump station experienced a pump failure causing the pump station to flood.  Due to this, MH#98 in Emmit Gardens overflowed causing sewage to leak into the land and nearby creek.  As a result, this created a need for emergency procurement in an effort to protect the health and safety of our residents as well as the protection of property.  As permitted by Town Code, 3.12.090 staff requested assistance from a contractor with expertise as well as equipment in this area.
