COVID-19 UPDATE from the Board of Supervisors

The Township building is open weekdays to the general public by appointment only and exclusively accommodates access by high risk members of the public between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.  All employees and visitors to the Township building shall wear masks, maintain social distancing, wash/sanitize hands regularly, and fill out a health self-screening evaluation when entering the Township building.

 

Township building, parks, and recreation facilities are open; however, restrooms remain closed.

 

The Easttown Library has transitioned back to contactless pick-up service only and suspended all in-library activities.  Materials for contactless pick-up can be placed on tables in the Library’s vestibule just inside the doors to the main entrance.  Please visit the Library’s website at https://www.easttownlibrary.org for more information.

 

Please be advised that in order to protect the public health, safety and welfare, Easttown Township is not currently issuing door-to-door marketing, sales, peddling, and soliciting permits under Chapter 313, Peddling and Soliciting, during the continuing period of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Proclamation of COVID-19 Disaster Emergency.

 

We continue to work closely with the business community to ensure a safe reopening and to provide all an opportunity to start resuming everyday activities; even though it will be on a limited basis.

 

The Board of Supervisors meeting of November 16, 2020 was held virtually and is available for viewing at the following link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/recording/373544093400342541.  The next Board of Supervisors meeting is scheduled for December 07, 2020, and will also be held virtually.  Please check the Township website for details on how to view and participate.

 

The Board of Supervisors recognize the impact that this pandemic has been creating on families and businesses; as such, the Board authorized that the Real Estate Taxes may be paid at the face value thru December 31, 2020 and have waived the penalty phase.  If you need more information regarding this, please feel free to contact the Township at 610-687-3000.

 

Police Officers, as well as fire and Emergency Medical Services personnel, continue to respond to calls as normal while taking every precaution to protect themselves and the public.  Both Departments are extremely grateful for all of the donations of supplies and other goods and the support they have received from the community.

 

We encourage all residents to continue to practice safe and responsible social distancing. We understand that these are challenging times, and we are in uncharted territory.  This will require cooperation, flexibility, and patience; and everyone has a role to play.

We would like to thank all of the residents for their cooperation during this crisis and encourage everyone to stay informed and safe.  The Township will be providing weekly updates and, if warranted, immediate notification as events unfold.

 

Thank you and stay well!

 

Jim Oram, Chairman, Board of Supervisors
