Thurmont Welcomes You

Due to the cold temperatures, the sidewalk replacement project in Thurmont has been discontinued until spring.  Crews will return once the temperatures are consistently high enough for the concrete to properly cure.If you have had new sidewalk or a new driveway apron installed, please refrain from using salt on the new concrete this winter.  The salt will damage the new concrete.  Non-corrosive ice melt compounds are recommended
Thank you
