The Township has implemented a temporary reduction of government functions and workforce while maintaining core services and essential operations as a result of precautions taken for the coronavirus (COVID-19). On Tuesday, March 17, Supervisor McGuire issued a local disaster proclamation in accordance with state law to enhance the Township’s response and readiness. The Board of Trustees approved a resolution on March 24 to extend the proclamation until May 5.
All in-person appointments with caseworkers and staff will be conducted over the phone, or virtually, for the timebeing. All programs and special events are canceled or will be rescheduled. The need for urgent, in-person appointments will be made on a case-by-case basis with the appropriate staff person.
Township transportation services will also be limited for the time being, with the exception of dialysis and other critical appointments. Riders will be required to wear gloves and face masks.
The Town Hall, Senior Center, and Astor Avenue Community Center (Food Pantry) will remain open. The Izaak Walton Center, Assessor’s office, passport office, and Department of Youth & Family Services will be closed for walk-in appointments but available for phone consultations.
