Welcome to Betterton

The Town of Betterton is seeking volunteers to serve on the Planning and Zoning committee.  If you are interested please email Elizabeth Greenwell, Town Manager at egreenwell@townofbetterton.com.


 The Town of Betterton is currently washing and painting the inside and outside of the Water Tower. Work will continue for the next 2 weeks.

Please note that while crews are working, cones may be blocking off a small area on Church Alley between 3rd and 4th street for safety reasons. This area will reopen when the crew is not onsite. Two-way traffic will be allowed on either side of the construction site to allow residents to access their properties.

Residents who live close to the water tower are encouraged to park their vehicles away from the water tower.  Car covers will be available by asking the foreman on site.

Church members and residents getting their mail are encouraged to park on 3rd Street or Main Street (away from the water tower) when they see that there is a crew on site.

If you have any questions, please contact me at egreenwell@townofbetterton.com or at 410-348-5522.

Thanks! Elizabeth Greenwell, Town Manager
