Governor Larry Hogan

While states across the country and in our region are experiencing spikes and outbreaks, Maryland’s key COVID-19 health metrics continue to decline. However, we are closely monitoring some concerning trends, including increasing infection rates among young people. The positivity rate among Marylanders under the age of 35 is now 84% higher than Marylanders 35 and older.

An increasing number of COVID-19 cases have been connected to non-compliance with public health requirements, particularly in bars and restaurants. Bars and restaurants are open for seated service only with physical distancing and capacity restrictions. Standing and congregating in bar areas is strictly prohibited. In order to keep outperforming the nation and continue on our road to recovery, all Marylanders, regardless of age, must continue practicing physical distancing, wearing masks, and avoiding crowds and close gatherings.

City of Havre de Grace to Receive Suffrage Marker on the National Votes for Women Trail

Geographic location has made Havre de Grace a crossroads of American history. Now a significant moment in American history is to be recognized in Havre de Grace with a Suffrage Marker on the National Votes for Women Trail.

The marker has been awarded to Havre de Grace through William G. Pomeroy Foundation, a private grant-making foundation based in Syracuse, NY, through its National Women’s Suffrage Marker Grant Program. These markers recognize historically significant people, places, or things across the United States, instrumental to women gaining the right to vote.

Havre de Grace Independence Day Commission

From John O’Neill manning a single cannon against the British, to each and every name etched in our War Memorial, our small City has always played a big part in America’s history. Every year we gather together to celebrate our freedom and honor those who fought to maintain it. Due to COVID 19, this year’s celebration looks very different. Once again, we are called upon to be brave and sacrifice in order to protect our families, friends, and neighbors. Even though we are sad that we can’t all be together, we would still like to celebrate and thank all of the frontline medical, first responder, and essential workers that have been working hard to keep us safe.

We can’t wait to see you in 2021 and once again have the best July 4th celebration in Maryland! Stay safe. Stay healthy. Happy Independence Day Havre De Grace!

On Friday, June 12, Mayor Martin, Council Member Boyer, and Council Member Ringsaker joined The Havre de Grace Green Team for a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new compost center.

The compost center is located near Hutchins Park, 100 Congress Avenue, Havre de Grace

• Open daily from 7:00am to 7:00pm
• Scraps can be placed in any available bin at the enclosure free of charge to local citizens
• This is the first municipality-based food waste disposal program in Harford County
• It is estimated that in the US, 30 to 40 percent of our food supply ends up as waste (fda.gov)
• When sent to the landfill, food does not readily break down, and it produces methane which is a harmful greenhouse gas
• This program benefits our environment both by keeping food out of the landfill and through utilizing valuable nutrients which would otherwise be lost
• Food hauled from the disposal site will be used to make compost which is a nutrient-rich soil enhancement
• Veteran Compost, will pick up and replace the bins once each week
• Questions can be directed to Havre de Grace Green Team at [email protected]

Statement from Mayor William T. Martin Regarding the City’s Outdoor Dining Policy

This morning I signed Executive Order 2020-05, implementing an outdoor dining policy in the City of Havre de Grace. This plan will allow restaurants who do not have outdoor seating to extend their operations onto approved City property while social distancing protocols remain in place.

I want to thank my staff who have been working on this plan for several weeks in anticipation of the Governor’s announcement to move the State of Maryland into the completion of Stage One of The Maryland Strong: Roadmap to Recovery.

Anyone with questions about this Executive Order should contact Erika Quesenbery, Director of Economic Development at [email protected] or (443) 252-0865.

Havre de Grace Independence Day Commission

Hello Havre de Grace:

It is our sad duty to inform you that today we are officially announcing the cancellation of this year's Independence Day Celebration in Havre de Grace.

This was not an easy decision for us to make. However, in accordance with local and state officials, and in accordance with Governor Hogan's Safer at Home Advisory, cancelling this year's parade, concerts, and fireworks is the only responsible and safe decision to make in the face of this year's global pandemic. Believe us - we are as disappointed as you are.

The good news is - this gives us a whole year to plan for an even bigger and better Independence Day Celebration for 2021! Thanks to all of our supporters. Stay safe and healthy out there!
