PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release

July 7, 2020

 

Susan Smith Appointed as Chief of Police for Port Deposit

 

Port Deposit, MD – At the July 7, 2020 Council meeting, Susan Smith was appointed as Chief of Police for the Town of Port Deposit.  Chief Smith has served as Acting Chief of Police since April 2019 pending law enforcement certification. Chief Smith successfully completed the Comparative Compliance Law Enforcement Training Program through the Maryland Police and Correctional Training Academy. 

 

The recommendation for the appointment was made by the Public Safety Committee after several months of meetings to evaluate the need for a part-time administrative law enforcement position.  Chief Smith will continue evaluating and determining the resources and coverage needed to meet the needs of the community.  Additionally, she will be developing a community policing initiative and serving as the point of contact for the community relative to public safety concerns and issues.

 

Chief Smith retired from the Maryland State Police in 2010 after twenty-four years of service.  She started her career as a uniform patrol officer and moved to the Narcotics Unit.  The last fifteen years of her career, she served as a criminal investigator in the Criminal Investigation Division.  Chief Smith is committed to working in partnership with law enforcement departments, Fire Company, Emergency Medical Services and the community to identify and resolve issues that impact public safety.

 

“I am excited to be able to continue to serve the Town of Port Deposit. I feel policing is one of the noblest professions a person can undertake and it has incredible rewards and responsibilities.” Chief Smith said. “I will be accessible and open to the public and intend to represent the citizens of this town to meet their public safety needs and concerns.”  Mayor Tome said, “The Public Safety Committee was appointed to evaluate the public safety needs of our Town. I fully support the appointment of Chief Smith, and look forward to the highest quality of public safety service for our citizens, businesses and visitors.”

 

Chief Smith’s office will be located in Town Hall, 64 S. Main Street, Port Deposit and she can be reached at 410.378.2121 or via email to ssmith@portdeposit.org.

PUBLIC NOTICE

MOSQUITO CONTROL PROGRAM

NOTIFICATION OF SPRAYING

 

The Town of Port Deposit will participate in the Maryland Department of Agriculture Mosquito Control Program. Mosquito control is conducted according to the concept of Integrated Mosquito Management (IMM), which uses a variety of pest management strategies to protect public health and the environment. One of those strategies is pesticide application. The department uses truck-mounted, ultra-low volume (ULV) aerosol generators for spraying in Towns and neighborhoods.  Click here for more information from the Maryland Department of Agriculture.

 

The principle insecticide applied for adult mosquito control in Maryland is a synthetic pyrethroid diluted in mineral oil. The active ingredients are Permethrin and piperonyl butoxide, the same active ingredients in lice shampoo and flea treatments for pets.  Please click here for a Product Safety Sheet for the insecticide used. The spray is applied at about 0.0031 pounds of active ingredient per acre. The ULV units disperse the insecticides over an effective swath width of 300 feet. Applications ideally are made when wind velocity is 2 to 10 mph, temperature is 60 to 85 degrees, relative humidity is high, and a temperature inversion exists. All mosquito spraying is done at night, when these conditions usually exist and when most mosquito species are active. Nighttime application also protects pollinators that are active during the day. 

 

In Port Deposit, Main Street, Center Street, Race Street, Rowland Drive, and Granite Avenue will be sprayed between 2:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. starting on Friday, June 24, 2020 (subject to change).

 

Property owners have an option to not have their property sprayed.  You must complete the Request for Exemption form and send it to:

Program Supervisor

Mosquito Control Division

50 Harry S. Tubman Parkway

Annapolis, MD 21401

 

A copy of the form must be sent to the Town of Port Deposit by email to townhall@portdeposit.org, fax 410-378-9104 or mail:

 

Town Hall

64 S. Main Street

Port Deposit, MD 21904
