If a major fire were to start in or outside of the town the fire companies would need to haul water from town. Water restrictions will start Sept. 1st. Please check for updated list.
Another grant was awarded to Union Bridge on August 7th in the amount of $30,780.00. This grant is to help restore the Union Bridge Community Park Playground. The grant was awarded from the Board of Public Works in Annapolis.
