Disaster Loan Outreach Center Flood Assistance
Thomas Manger Public Safety Headquarters100 Edison Park Dr , Ste. 1S31 Gaithersburg, Md 20878 Wednesday, August 21, 2019, 9am – 5pm On July 8, 2019, Montgomery County and surrounding areas experienced a period of intense, heavy rain that led to flooding, downed trees and power lines, and many swift water rescues. On July 11, 2019, the County opened the Damage Assessment Portal to gather information and data on damages caused by the July 8 flood event. The data collected through the damage assessment portal helped to determine if the County met the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) eligibility threshold to apply for federal funding. No jurisdictions, including Montgomery County, met FEMA's criteria for individual assistance for this event. The DLOC hours of operations are as follows: Wednesday, August 14  11 AM - 6 PM Thursday, August 15  9 AM - 6 PM Friday, August 16  9 AM - 6 PM Saturday, August 17  10 AM  2 PM Sunday, August 18  CLOSED Monday, August 19  9 AM - 6 PM Tuesday, August 20  9 AM - 6 PM Wednesday, August 21  9 AM - 5 PM Category: Public Safety Age: Adult Area: All More info: www.montgomerycountymd.gov&

Labor Day
Montgomery County, MD Monday, September 2, 2019 Labor Day is an official holiday observed on the first Monday in September in both the United States and Canada. Other countries also observe this holiday but on different dates. Labor Day is celebrated in order to recognize the contribution of labor to the world and hence is of special importance to organized labor movements. It is a federal holiday and is also recognized by law in all of the states, U.S. territories, and Puerto Rico. The idea for Labor Day is credited to two individuals; Matthew Maguire, a machinist from Paterson, N.J., and Peter McGuire of New York City. McGuire founded the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and co-founded the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions, which later became the American Federation of Labor. Montgomery County government will observe this holiday. Category: Holidays
