National Medication Take-Back Event this SATURDAY

Public Hearing Notice: Brookville Road Park

The Chevy Chase Village Board of Managers will convene a Public Hearing during its regular meeting on Monday, November 14, 2016. The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m.
The Village’s ad hoc Park Design Committee, led by landscape architect Lila Fendrick, presented draft plans for Brookville Road Park to the Village Board in October.  During this presentation, issues were raised by some neighbors regarding the appropriate uses for the park, including whether off-leash dog usage should be allowed.  Rather than proceeding with consideration of the proposed plans, the Village Board has scheduled a Public Hearing to consider the community’s feedback on the future role of the park.
If you are unable to attend the Public Hearing on November 14, you may submit written testimony for the record either by e-mail at or directly to the Village office at 5906 Connecticut Avenue, Chevy Chase, MD 20815.

Correct Leaf Collection Piles

Leaf Collection has begun throughout the Village

Village Public Works crews have begun limited leaf collection throughout the Village each day. Given that the leaf collection season is just getting underway there is no set schedule and Public Works crews will be monitoring all streets for pick-ups. Please note that the collection is subject to change due to adverse weather conditions and equipment malfunctions.
Residents are asked to rake their leaves as close to the curb as possible without putting them in the roadway gutter. Should it rain, leaves piled in the gutter will dam the water causing it to pond. Residents are also encouraged not to box in piles of leaves with cars both for easier accessibility for the leaf crews and additional safety for your vehicles.
Residents on Bradley Lane are required to bag their leaves before placing them at the roadside. Bradley Lane leaf bags will be collected throughout the week, as part of your normal yard waste collections. If you are planning to bag your leaves, they must be placed in paper bags. Public Works will not pick up leaves that have been bagged in plastic.

Residents are asked to rake their leaves as close to the curb as possible without putting them in the roadway gutter. Should it rain, leaves piled in the gutter will dam the water causing it to pond. Please avoid boxing in piles of leaves between cars both for easier accessibility for the collection crews and safety for your vehicles.
Sticks and other sharp tree and garden debris should be left loose and placed in separate piles from leaves. Sharp debris can tear the leaf collection hoses or dull the blades, resulting in downtime for the machine to address repairs to the vacuum machinery that can cause delays in the collection.

Another Bait Car Activation Nets 2 More Arrest - Second activation this month 

Early Tuesday morning (about 12:20 a.m. on 10/18), our bait car was activated and it automatically sent a streaming video of the thief to our Communications Center. Dispatcher Regina Cortez immediately alerted Officers Hearn and Fones and she also sent an image of the thief directly to their smart phones. The officers responded to the area of Kirkside Drive and Montgomery Street right away while simultaneously notifying County Police. Officer Hearn spotted two males in front of a home in the 5600 block of Kirkside and they immediately fled on foot when they saw Officer Hearn.

Village and County officers—including a K9 team—worked together to arrest Tyler S. KIETT, 21 years old (pictured at right), of Washington, DC in the back yard of a home in the 5600 block of Montgomery Street. A juvenile male was located hiding underneath a car in the driveway of a home in the 5600 block of Montgomery Street; he was also arrested.                            

Investigation revealed that, in addition to the bait car, a three additional unlocked cars had been entered on Kirkside Drive and Montgomery Street. 

Tyler KIETT was taken to the Central Processing Unit in Rockville and charged with entering both cars. The juvenile was taken to the 2nd District Station of the Montgomery County Police where he was processed and turned over to his father.

Another great catch by the team of Cortez, Hearn and Fones in partnership with MCPD!

Food Drive: Now - December in the Village Hall

For the fourth year in a row, Chevy Chase Village will partner with the Manna Food Center, the largest food bank in Montgomery County. Over the past 33 years, Manna has distributed 47.3 million pounds of food to more than 2.7 million individuals in need of food assistance. Manna serves approximately 3,700 individuals monthly totaling 11,000 unduplicated households each year. The services of Manna ensure that 21,000 adults and 15,000 children who are experiencing poverty, hunger, and food insecurity will receive essential food supports to help them break the cycle of hunger and food insecurity.

What can you do? We will have a food drop-off at the Village Hall beginning in October through December. When attending Village events (classes, Board Meetings, Halloween Party, Holiday Party…), residents are asked to bring an item to add to the box. Here are some ideas: peanut butter, tuna fish, beans, oatmeal, mac and cheese, pasta, baby food, and shelf-stable milk. Please do not donate expired food.

The best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated each year, but good health habits can often help stop the spread of germs and prevent illnesses like the flu. Good health habits include:

  • Always cover cough or sneeze with a tissue—then throw the tissue away. Or, cough or sneeze into the inside of the elbow.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze and before you eat. Alcohol hand sanitizer (minimum 60% alcohol) will help if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching the eyes, nose or mouth. These are places germs can enter the body easily.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick, too.
  • Monitor yourself and your family for symptoms of fever which include chills, headache, sore throat, cough, body aches, and vomiting or diarrhea.
  • If you are sick, stay home from work, school or other public places until you are feeling well.

Check the County’s flu website— for more information.
