DPW Announces Start of Fall Leaf Collection Program
Residents Urged to Participate in Mayor’s Oct. 25 Fall Cleanup


BALTIMORE, MD (October 22, 2014— With the middle of autumn approaching, Baltimore City Department of Public Works Director Rudolph S. Chow, P.E., is urging Baltimore City residents to keep their curbs, alleys, and storm drains clear of leaves to prevent flooding.

“The City of Baltimore has implemented citywide street sweeping, but that is not enough to keep falling leaves from clogging the thousands of storm drain inlets throughout the City,” Director Chow said.

The Director also encouraged residents to participate in the Mayor’s annual Fall Cleanup — a citywide initiative that brings residents together to clean Baltimore’s neighborhoods. The Mayor’s Fall Cleanupwill take place on October 25. [Read more...]

Update on incident involving discharged firearm around 2 am on 1000 block of S. Charles Street

Update from Major Dombroski on incident involving discharged firearm around 2 am on 1000 block of S. Charles Street:

As of 11:07am: The handgun that was recovered by SD Police (9MM Ekol Volga) was consistent with what is known as a “blank gun”. A “blank gun” is a firearm that does not shoot a projectile, however it makes a loud sound or bang like a normal firearm. The Major believes this is the probable (he stressed probable) scenario, however he will not be able to confirm until ballistics testing is completed, which could take up to 3 weeks.

Victim was 25 AA Male. Suspects were a 24 AA Male and 26 AA Male. One suspect has an record of about 5 or 6 charges, the other may have one previous charge. It appears that all three involved had ties to NW Baltimore.
