The love locks in question.

Next time you need a response from a city official, consider posting to Facebook instead of calling city hall. They may get in touch quicker!

The Baltimore Sun reports that Lauren Burr of North Carolina, who has visited Ocean City with her husband since before they were married, had placed two souvenir padlocks on a post at Dorchester Street: one for the two of them in 2008 and one for their daughter who was born in 2012.

Due to recent renovations, the post the locks hang on was taken down, to Burr’s disappointment.

One emotional Facebook plea, 150 shares, and less than 24 hours later (by Burr’s counting) and the locks were located by Ocean City council member Doug Cymek, who removed them from the post, offered to have them rebuffed, and even promised to make a motion at the next city council meeting to “reinstall the locks on Dorchester St. and to not have them removed.”

Now that’s service!
