The health and safety of our community is the top priority of Exeter Township. Township staff continue to work to provide essential services to its residents amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Operations have been adjusted in order to continue to provide those services, while ensuring the health and safety is protected of staff, residents and visitors. This is a constantly evolving situation, and decisions will be made accordingly.
Here’s what is going on right now:
Township Administration Building
4975 DeMoss Road
- CLOSED to the public until further notice
- Staff are working remotely to the extent possible
- Residents can contact the Township M-F 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM at 610-779-5660
On Monday, March 23, 2020 Exeter Township Supervisors declared a disaster emergency due to the COVID-19 public health crisis. This declaration allows the Township to continue to address the essential needs of its residents in the safest, fastest, and most efficient means possible during this crisis.
In addition to allowing for more expedient administrative processes, it also may make the Township eligible for certain state grants to cover out-of-pocket losses not covered by insurance.
Right-to-Know Law requests will only be accepted by email until further notice. The Township will respond to such requests within thirty (30) days of the Township reopening for business.
Township officials encourage all residents to remain compliant with the recommendations set-forth by the CDC and the Wolf Administration. Stay home if you’re sick, wash your hands often, use hand sanitizer, don’t touch your face, cover coughs and sneezes, avoid individuals who are sick, and sanitize surfaces.
