Date: May 2015 -   Here is an update to the lewis ave crime prevention from LT. Merritt
  Just wanted to provide you the current updates since our last communications.
  1. The shrubs that line the walkway on Lewis Avenue have been trimmed down below the fence line.
  2. The meters on Lewis Ave., from Rockland to Halpine will begin being changed to 25 cents near the end of the month - early June. Moving right along - the meters have been changed to be operational for 12 hours at 25 cents an hour along Lewis Avenue, hopefully, this will bring more eyes to the area near the metro.
  3. The City Transportation Office has requested additional lighting from Pepco to be placed on the wooden poles leading from Holland to Rockland.
  4. The turn around requested in the area of Halpine and the dead end of Lewis has been denied. A short term Kiss & Ride along the road next to the metro from Halpine to the dead end of Lewis is now being considered.
  If you have any questions don't hesitate to give me a call.

Date: 9/1/17 -     Patrons of Rockville's bars and restaurants will no longer be able to smoke in outdoor serving areas in the city,
  following a vote on a prohibition by the Mayor and Council at their Monday, May 22 meeting. Enforcement of the
  smoking/vaping ban will be conducted by the City of Rockville Police Department. Currently, the fine is $1,000 per
  violation, which is the maximum allowed by state law. In October 2015, the Mayor and Council voted unanimously
  to follow Montgomery County code, allowing a countywide ban on smoking and vaping to apply to city property,
  including city parks, community centers, Redgate Golf Course and all city facilities.
