New Toll Free Number for South County Residents

New Toll Free Number for South County Residents

Residents of the extreme southern portions of Washington County will find a much-needed present under the tree this holiday season.
A new telephone number, 301-432-4752, will help residents of the Sandy Hook area reach Washington County government services toll-free for the first time.
Residents of the area who were in the 834-xxxx exchange were required to pay long distance charges when calling other areas of the County including Hagerstown, which made contacting government services costly, especially for persons on fixed incomes.
Residents who need to contact County Government may use the new number, which will connect them to Central Services information desk in the County Administration Building. Calls will then be transferred to the appropriate department by Central Services.
