The pandemic of the Coronavirus is impacting the lives of people across the globe. As we navigate through this difficult time, our first priority is the health and safety of our community. We have been closely monitoring the situation and have been in constant contact with County and State Health Department officials and have been watching reports from the Center for Disease Control (CDC). We are committed to doing our best to continue to provide essential Borough services while protecting the health of our residents and our employees and we have had to make some difficult decisions. Borough offices are closed to the public until further notice. This does not prevent the public from being able to transact business with us in any way. The following outlines the changes that have been implemented.
*Borough buildings are closed to the public. This includes the Dougherty Community Center.
*For police non-emergencies, call 856-931-2220. For emergencies, call 9-1-1.
*Tax payments can be mailed, put in the drop-box outside Borough Hall or can be paid online.
*The rabies clinic has been postponed. The deadline for dog licensing has been extended to September 30. Dog licenses can also be obtained by mail or applications and payments, along with the rabies certificate, can be put in the payment drop-box. Just be sure to include a copy of the rabies certificate. We are hoping to schedule a rabies clinic in September.
*All meetings are being held via Zoom until further notice.
*Trash and recycling will be collected on the normal schedule.
Essential Borough staff are back-to-work for now and you can reach them by phone or by email. All email contact information is available on this site or you can call the Borough Hall main number at 856-931-1546. To reach Public Works, call 856-931-2529.
We will continue to monitor this situation as more information becomes available and will keep you posted via social media. Please stay safe during this crisis and make sure to practice good personal hygiene including washing your hands thoroughly and often, covering coughs and if you are sick, staying home. Avoid people who are sick. Refrain from attending public gatherings. We all have to work towards preventing the spread of this virus. Together we will get through this.
