Laytonsville Emergency Measures

April 1, 2020

 In order to safeguard the Laytonsville staff and residents, the Town Council members I have determined the Town Hall will be closed to the public until Governor Larry Hogan cancels the Maryland State of Emergency.  

Specifically, the Town Hall will not be open to the public; however, the public can telephone, email or send USPS letters to the Town.  The Staff will continue working on Town matters during normal hours of operation.

Those of you who need to interact with the Town should do so electronically or by USPS.  The Town’s phone number is 301 869-0042.

James A. Ruspi, Mayor
