Pool needs to be fixed,children come out with blisters on feet from chipped up bottom
Could someone explain this constant closing of the pool for "chilly" temperatures? I've lived all over Virginia, including a few of your neighboring towns and this is the first time I've ever seen a pool close for this reason. If you were talking 50 degree weather or torrential downpours all day, I might could get behind you closing. But setting the bar at above 70 degrees seems a bit crazy.
My children swam in a pool this last Sunday in 64° weather in the pouring rain.
Just a reminder --- Town Real Estate and Personal Property taxes are due TODAY. To avoid penalty, have your mailed payment postmarked with today's date or drop in our night box tonight.

I heard that a POO did happen on Friday in the kids pool & they closed it. Maybe something transferred to the adult pool. I’ve never liked the idea that children with a dipper/pull-up go in the adult pool. It probably is the filtration system.
Is it opened today?
Other nearby towns, like Front Royal and Stephen's City, have pools, for those who really want to visit a pool this weekend and don't have their own swimming pool.
Can't even keep a pool open and functional for the town
Sandy Palmer another summer with the same issues at the pool smh
What serious issues?
It didn't pass health code? Everyone swims in the poisoned river anyway
I've been told to address my concerns on Rich's condition on this page. If the town could update everyone on his condition it would go a long way to dispel rumors. My continued best wishes for his recovery. Thank you in advance.
Sober my A** 😂😂 he nor the town getting off this one good luck. I know too many people in higher places that says different. That's why the state police is involved with the investigation. Help from core-labs out of Inova Fairfax county hospital will beg the differ 😮with what his BAC was js.
Sending prayers and God's grace for you all, on eagles wings
Is the Mayor getting charged with reckless handling of a motorized vehicle ? Driving a motorized vehicle drunk and endangering life's of the people ? Or is that just for the normal tax paying citizens ? We want answers chief
Press charges and dismiss him as mayor
What was his B.A.C?
He was drunk on a golf cart way to go Strasburg
DON'T DRINK AND DRIVER PERIOD!! I don't care who you are,,,, I lost my son-in-law from a drunk driver
Hey cuz Rich Orndorff Jr. Hope your healing well try not to let media get you down ...God Bless
Where was you police when he and his wife was in the gold cart driving and drinking around town allday ? Of forgot he signs the paychecks get the fu** out here we as tax paying citizens that pay y'all's salaries demand answers. What if he had run over someone and hurt or killed them ? Would the town still stand behind him ? As if have said on the what's happening in Strasburg site before I was bullied and blocked from speaking my mind and told I don't have freedom of speech even on a private site lmao this towns citizens need to stand up and vote corruptione out DRIAN THE SWAMP ASAP . FROM POLICE TO MAYOR TO THE TOWN COUNCIL MEMBERS .

March 2018? Haha.
Why does this say March 22, 2018
Hope your doing/getting well cousin!
It was yesterday...he must have just forgotten to change the date.
When you get caught drinking at apple blossom weekend you get arrested and don't get out till Monday morning lol
Well him and his wife were driving around drunk all night last night so maybe that has something to do with the accident? And of course Strasburg police didn’t do anything about them driving intoxicated. I guess they didn’t wanna have to arrest the mayor at his own event! I guess that’s KARMA for screwing people out of money on a consistent basis.

With our area receiving over 60 inches of rainfall last year it can be difficult to determine if standing or flowing water is caused by rain or an underground water line leak.
The water mains are installed three to six feet beneath the surface of the public right-of-way. Water can surface near the leak or travel several hundred yards underground from the leak and surface within the right-of-way or on private property.
If you notice clear water bubbling from the surface, similar to a natural spring, in an area that usually has no flowing water then it may be a water line leak.
If you do spot a possible water leak please contact your Public Works Department at 465-3025 or report using yourgov.cartegraph.com. We will be happy to investigate the area to determine if it is an actual water line leak. ... See MoreSee Less

They didn’t touch mine today at all. Does the trash company have a policy on weight or something ? Is not like there is anything out of the ordinary , except just normal trash volume. I’m very disappointed . This is the third time they did this to us. We live on north Massanutten . Please advise them , if for whatever reason they can’t pick up they need to tell us why.
Just a reminder --- Due to American Disposal Services, our trash and recycling company, being closed on Christmas Day to allow workers time to enjoy the holiday with their families, trash and recycling will be picked up on THURSDAY, DECEMBER 27. They will also be closed on New Year’s Day so trash collection will take place on THURSDAY, JANUARY 3. ... See MoreSee Less

The Rt. 55 Water Storage Tank at 2082 John Marshall Hwy will be out of service from October 29th – November 9th, 2018. The tank serves as storage water for the industrial park, Route 11 area; starting at Crystal Hill wrapping around Radio Station Road to Borden Mowery Drive.

We estimate the project to take two weeks and during that time water pressure and volumes may be reduced. Should users experience low pressure or volume during this period please contact Town Hall at 540-465-9197. ... See MoreSee Less
Also could you briefly touch on what this project will entail? Maybe what equipment we (the tax payers) will be paying for to fix this water problem? The same problem that has plagued this town for over 5 years?
Hopefully the town will take the increased water and sewer rates and their loans from the VRA and actually put in new water storage tanks, or repair our existing ones to remedy the carcinogen contamination in our water supply. Hoping this is not just a band aid to get us by for a couple years. Our beautiful community deserves better.
Recently, we have seen an increase in thefts from unattended vehicles throughout the Town of Strasburg. A common trend throughout these incidents is the suspects are seeking out unlocked vehicles. Strasburg Police Department remains committed to proactively patrolling our neighborhoods around the clock, but we could use your help. Here are some tips to help deter thefts from your vehicles.
• Lock all of your vehicles every day - no exceptions! Thieves are frequently deterred by locked doors as their mission is to move quickly without drawing attention. Locking your doors the most efficient way to prevent this. • Use motion sensing lights if possible. The activation of a motion sensing light makes your property a much harder target! • Be observant of your neighborhood and look out for one another. If you see any suspicious activity, report it immediately at (540) 459-6101. We will gladly come and take a look. ... See MoreSee Less

Under Strasburg Town Code 58-27, solicitation is only permitted in Strasburg with a valid permit, issued by the Police Department. For the purposes of Town Code 58-27, a solicitor is defined as "a person who goes from door to door visiting multifamily or single-family dwellings to sell any goods, wares, merchandise or services or accept subscriptions or orders therefor, or to accept or request donations for any charitable purpose." Here are some helpful tips when it comes to encounters with solicitors.
- Ask to see a solicitation permit if anyone comes to your residence attempting to sell something. - Call Dispatch at 459-6101 if the individual cannot, or refuses to, provide a solicitation permit. - Try to gather a description of the solicitor(s) to include what they're wearing, what they're selling, direction of travel, and vehicle description if they are traveling by vehicle.
