All correspondences and interactions are to be by phone or electronic means.  All scheduled public meetings are still planned to be conducted at this time.  However, these meetings will be conducted in the Township Garage so that people can spread out and not be confined to the limited space in the formal meeting room.

Going forward, the Supervisors will continue to follow the direction of local Emergency Management, County, State and Federal officials as well as the CDC and act accordingly.

All of these measures are being taken with the health and wellness of our residents being put first.
