Following the Governor’s Executive Order 2020-110, the Township Offices will be open to the public during regular office hours beginning 6/8/2020.  

The following guidelines are in place to support the necessary standards for Workplace Safeguards during this period:

  • We  encourage residents to conduct their business as much as possible through the use of email, telephones and our drop box on the east side door in order to reduce face to face activity.  There is also a contact list posted on the front door for your convenience.
  • For those times when face to face activity is needed, we have created a customer service area just inside the main doors.  We ask that each customer maintain appropriate social distancing. If there are multiple people waiting for service at the same time, we ask that customers remain outside or in their cars until it is their turn.
  • We request that residents consider wearing face masks when inside the building.In order to limit indoor gatherings of more than 10 people, we will be providing electronic access to our public meetings, at least through the end of June.  

Thank you for your consideration of these changes.  Welcome back!
