City Council announces Coronavirus strategy

March 13th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

With the heightened measures announced by Maryland Governor Larry Hogan yesterday, the City of Cumberland is monitoring this very dynamic and quickly evolving situation.  With no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our region, the risk to our area is still low; however, in an abundance of caution, preparations are being made, should our area be directly affected.

  • The City has ceased business travel to out-of-state locations, unless specially authorized by the City Administrator.
  • All departments within the City are reviewing plans and identifying essential personnel to ensure the continuity of operations in an emergency situation.
  • The City is coordinating efforts with other government agencies to facilitate mutual aid for emergency situations.
  • The City is exploring the possibility of live streaming public meetings so citizens can continue observation without extra risk.

To further accommodate social distancing measures and prevent the spread of illness, the City would like to remind citizens about and encourage the use of online billing and payment for Utility bills.  A one-time registration on the myCity utility billing portal will enable utility bills to be sent electronically every month, lessening the possibility of a bill getting lost.  Users of the portal can log in each month and make a payment by credit card or electronic check payment (ACH), with no additional fees, no postage and no worry that the payment is delayed in the mail.  To begin online billing and payment, visit  https://cumberlandmd.authoritypay.com/.  Residents may also make a Utility payment via credit card by calling City Hall at 301-759-6409, Monday through Friday between 8 am and 4 pm.
