It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! Many thanks to everyone who made it so magical. We watched the Commons turn into a Winter Wonderland full of beautiful lights. We had festive music and performances, thanks to DJ Val, the PHS Poms, the JPMS Music Dept, and Mrs. Claus (aka Mrs. Shepperd). We had the Holiday Express Train to ride, Santa letters to write, Frosty & the Gingerbread Man to dance with, and we were even able to witness "The Poolesville Bear" join us. We had caroling around the town tree led by the Poolesville Memorial Methodist Church Choir. We had Santa make a grand entrance, thanks to the Upper Montgomery County Volunteer Fire Department. We'd also like to thank the Town Commissioners, the Friday on the Commons Committee and our Parks & Streets Department for making this night possible. Tis the Season!

Town of Poolesville Trash & Recycling Service Survey

We've received 220 responses! Have YOU taken our survey?
Town of Poolesville Residents - Your input is needed on our Trash & Recycling Program.
The Town of Poolesville, through a contract with Bates Trucking Trash Removal, Inc., currently provides Town residents twice-weekly curbside refuse pickup, weekly recycling and yard waste collection, and certain other occasional services related to larger or specialized items. The Town's original contract with Bates expires at the end of June, 2022. The contract is Poolesville's largest single operating expenditure annually.
The Town Commission intends to issue a competitive Request for Proposal (RFP) for a new multi-year contract for these services. Whatever vendor is selected is expected to provide efficient, courteous, cost-effective and environmentally responsible service.
Poolesville is seeking resident input on the overall trash and recycling program in order to help shape and inform the Commission's decision-making as staff drafts the RFP document. The survey includes questions about the current levels of service, as well as whether any changes or improvements should be considered as part of a new contract.

Poolesville Commission President Kerri Cook testified in person at the MCPS Board of Education hearing on Monday night saying that the community was grateful for the initial renovations that have been approved for PHS, but for the high school to be treated like any other Montgomery County public high school renovation, “the 45-year-old, middle-school-sized gym needs to be part of the rebuild. We are simply asking you to acknowledge that we should be treated fairly."

BOE board member Shebra Evans responded to the testimony saying that it would be great to get PHS a new gym. Board member Judy Docca also indicated that staff is working on the issue.
