Beach Trolley Association Trolley Update. The Beach Trolley Association, an independent non-profit organization based here in Chesapeake Beach, could no longer secure the financial support needed to fund trolley operations during the 2013 summer. There is, therefore, no further trolley service operating between Chesapeake Beach and Herrington Harbour South by way of North Beach.
Bay Restoration Fee Financial Hardship Exemption -- On May 26, 2004, Senate Bill 320 was signed into law, creating the Bay Restoration Fund (“BRF”). The purpose of the bill was to create a dedicated fund financed by wastewater treatment plant users to be used to upgrade Maryland’s wastewater treatment plants with enhanced nutrient removal (ENR) technology. On July 1, 2012, House Bill 446 increased the mandated BRF fee from $2.50 per month to $5.00 per month, and required that BRF fee billing authorities develop a financial hardship fee waiver plan for low income households.
Residents of the Town of Chesapeake Beach may apply directly to the Town for an exemption from the fee due to substantial financial hardship.

Reminder on Dogs -- According to the Calvert County Animal Control Ordinance, all dogs must be on a leash when not on your property. We have had a couple incidences recently where larger dogs got loose and attacked smaller dogs. We do not want to impose any additional restrictions on these pets, so we ask that you take special care to see they are restrained at all times. If your dog has a tendency to be aggressive, we suggest you consider a muzzle.

Chesapeake Beach receives a Banner City Award again for 2012 from the Maryland Municipal League (MML). The MML annually awards designations of Banner City / Town to those cities and towns that have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to MML programs and activities through the involvement of their elected and appointed officials during the past year. The Banner City / Town designation is MML’s highest city/town member achievement award. The program is designed to encourage and reward exceptional participation in MML programs and activities and to foster teamwork among municipal officials to achieve program criteria. It is meant to be a challenge that requires foresight and commitment from the municipality.
Calvert County (including Chesapeake Beach) was recognized as one of the "100 Best Communities for Young People" for the year 2012.
