Township Offices Closed to the Public in Wake of COVID-19 Pandemic

On Monday, Governor Wolf expanded his shutdown order to all non-essential government offices, and non-essential businesses across the Commonwealth in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19.

As a result, the Township Administration Building located at 4975 DeMoss Road will close to the public beginning March 17th, 2020. Police, Fire, Public Works, and EMS services will continue to operate. The Monday, March 23rd Board of Supervisors meeting has also been cancelled.

Township staff will remain on site to handle regular business 8am-4:30 P.M, Monday - Friday, and can assist residents by phone. Residents should refer to the following phone numbers:

  • Administration: 610-779-5660

The Tax Collector's Office will be closed until March 26, 2020. Residents can leave messages at the main number, (610) 779-8055. Voicemail will be checked daily by staff. 

To mitigate the spread of this virus, Township employees have been directed to stay home if Ill, and follow personal hygiene procedures in accordance with CDC guidelines. Township facilities are being professionally disinfected, and each department has been equipped with sanitizing products. 

The Dunn Community Center will be closed March 17th, 2020 through March 30th, 2020. Individuals with reservations during that timeframe will be issued full refunds or will have the option to choose an alternate date. To mitigate the spread of this virus, it is important to implement social distancing and avoid gatherings, particularly those involving more than 50-people. Individuals who have an upcoming reservation and have questions or concerns related to last minute cancellations should contact the Parks & Recreation Department at 610-406-0263.

Late last week, the Parks & Recreation Department issued a statement cancelling the annual Easter Egg Scramble, scheduled for Saturday, April 4th, 2020. The Township does not have plans to reschedule the event at this time due to the uncertain nature of this virus.

Township officials recognize the need to maintain flexibility with its response, and will be closely monitoring the spread of the virus and will make adjustments accordingly. Announcements regarding any further closings will be announced on the Township’s website, and social media pages.
