DC Snow Team Deploys, Residential Street Sweeping Suspended
While today is technically the first day of spring, Mother Nature does not seem ready to let go of winter just yet. Forecasts are predicting total snow accumulations by Wednesday evening of 1—3 inches, with up to 5—7 inches possible. With this in mind, the DC Snow Team fully deployed with more than 200 heavy and light plows this morning starting at 10:00 a.m. to pretreat treat all National Highway System, primary, secondary and residential routes within the District. Our crews will be working throughout the evening and tomorrow to treat and plow roads.
With today’s inclement weather, and because our drivers work as part of the DC Snow Team, street sweeping has been suspended today throughout the District.
To prepare for the snow and Wednesday morning commute, residents are encouraged to heed the following tips:
Take Metro as an alternative to driving.If driving, do so cautiously and maintain safe speeds and distances from other vehicles.Keep a safe distance from emergency and snow vehicles and use caution when attempting to pass a snowplow. Give the drivers plenty of room to safely do their jobs.Be aware of hazardous road conditions, particularly black ice which can be deceptive in appearance and give the driver a false sense of security on the road.Drive and walk carefully on bridges, ramps and other elevated structures which can freeze before the roadway.Cyclists should use caution and avoid biking directly on snow or ice.
For more information about DC’s snow program and preparing for winter weather, or to see where District Snow Team plows are working, go to snow.dc.gov.

DPW Reports Sanitary Sewer Overflow
Engineers Investigating Possible Sewer Blockage in Northwest Baltimore
The Baltimore City Department of Public Works estimates that 11,000 gallons of rainwater, mixed with sewer water, overflowed into the Jones Falls following heavy downpours on the morning of Monday, Oct. 9, 2017. This incident lasted about an hour, and it occurred underground in a structured overflow at North Charles and West Lanvale Streets. It did not spill onto any streets. The Baltimore City Health Department and the Maryland Department of the Environment were notified of this release.
Structured overflows were designed as part of Baltimore’s sewer system more than 100 years ago. They are being eliminated as part of the City’s $2 billion Consent Decree sewer rehabilitation work. Structured overflows act as release valves when the pipes are surcharged with rainwater that enters the sewer mains during significant storms.
At a separate location in Northwest Baltimore, DPW engineers are investigating a potential sewer line blockage in the 3400 block of Glen Avenue. Since Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017, this site has experienced three smaller intermittent overflows during dry-weather conditions. This structured overflow location is also below ground and enters into a storm drain that flows to the Jones Falls.
The public is reminded to avoid contact with urban waterways due to the risk of pollution. For more information about health concerns as a result of sewer overflows please go to http://health.baltimorecity.gov/sanitary-sewer-overflows-sso.
After hours, weekends, or holidays please call 410-396-3100 for the duty officer
The Baltimore City Department of Public Works supports the health, environment, and economy of our City and region by cleaning our neighborhoods and waterways and providing its customers with safe drinking water and sustainable energy practices.

There has been a lot of talk lately surrounding the eviction process in DC. Did you know that you cannot just go into a tenant's unit to evict even if they have seemingly vacated the premises? Yup! I said it (well typed it); it's the law in DC.
Do you know DC laws pertaining to evictions? If you do not, no worries. You are not alone. This is the number one reason that we have one of the top eviction companies in the DC Metropolitan area coming in today for the DC Housing Providers' Association (DCHPA) Meeting.
Please join us tonight for our monthly DCHPA Meeting at the

25 Must-See Buildings in Washington, D.C.
Whether you a District (or surrounding area) resident or have a trip to the nation’s capital planned and trying to decide which of the countless sights to see....
Not too long ago there was an unfortunate perception that architecture in the nation’s capital is limited to classical monuments and bland office buildings. But that sort of thinking is akin to the notion that the only fine dining options in D.C. are high-end steakhouses for the expense-report crowd.
And much like the validation that came from the city’s recent inclusion in the prestigious Michelin Dining Guide, there has been a surge in dynamic and compelling new buildings going up all over Washington, D.C., in recent years.
Thanks to the efforts of local architects, developers, community groups and passionate residents, the District of Columbia has become one of the greenest, healthiest, walkable and all-around most enjoyable cities in the country.
“Accidental Landlords” Receive Tax Gift from Uncle Sam
If you’re one of the so-called “accidental landlords” who is leasing out your prior primary residence because you couldn’t sell over the past few years, you may be in luck when it comes time to sell. A recent change to the Taxpayer Relief Act has expanded tax exemptions on capital gains from selling real estate… with a few provisions, of course.
You might recall that in 1997, the Taxpayer Relief Act was born and provided millions of Americans a way to avoid paying taxes on the profits from selling their homes. Specifically, single homeowners were allowed to profit up to $250,000, while married couples were allowed up to $500,000 in profits from the sale of their primary home. Well, a lot has changed in the American tax laws since then, but the capital gains provision is one which maintained its advantages for many homeowners. In fact, there are even a few added bonuses since its inception. Before recent changes to the Taxpayer Relief Act, the tax-free gains on the sale could only be used to purchase another home. But now Uncle Sam is allowing homeowners to do whatever they’d like with the profits from a primary home sale.
What Does the Future Hold?
Federal legalization of medical marijuana has been proposed, and the Drug Enforcement Administration had been expected by June 30 to consider reclassifying marijuana as a Schedule II drug. If it was reclassified, it would be in the same category as morphine, codeine and oxycodone, still controlled and heavily regulated, but not illegal. As of this writing, however, the DEA has not announced a change.
If marijuana became a federally regulated drug, doctors would be permitted to prescribe it and patients would purchase it at a pharmacy. Landlords would not be in a position to know who was taking marijuana in the form of capsules, sprays, pills, patches or suppositories. It's likely that rental leases would address only recreational use and growing marijuana.
If recreational marijuana becomes widely legal – and experts doubt that such a change is imminent – then landlords may omit the mention of marijuana in leases except to include it in a ban on smoking. The drug would only become an issue if its use led to complaints about loud parties, offensive odor or excessive noise.

New Law Could Make Landlords Liable for Sex Trafficking at Their Rentals
New legislation in Prince George’s County aims to hold landlords and property managers accountable for prostitution and human trafficking at their rental properties — the latest sign of a growing concern in an immigrant-rich corner of the Washington suburb.

Washington’s Worst Case of Lead Poisoning in Decades Happened in a Home Sanctioned by Housing Officials.
Another morning in the motel room, and there were more appointments to attend to. Today it wouldn’t be the blood tests, which weeks before had established Heavenz Luster’s lead levels as higher than anything seen in Washington in decades, or another injection to remove that lead — she had already had 18 — or another cognitive evaluation or visit to a nearby CVS pharmacy for more medication. Today it would be the behavioral therapists. Her parents, who silently watched the 2-year-old babble and stare at nothing, would finally know the severity of her brain damage.
When it appeared that bedbugs were infesting his 89-year-old mother’s apartment, the Minneapolis man believed “there was no way out.” Fearing she would be evicted from her home, he decided to “send her to heaven,” according to court records, striking her with a sculpture of himself, smothering her with a pillow and suffocating her to death.
More than a year after admitting to killing his mother, Michael Gallagher is trying to get her life insurance.
washingtonpost.com The case has left a Minnesota court with a baffling question: If a man clearly killed his mother but was not convicted, is he still entitled to the proceeds of her life insurance?
