On behalf of the Board of Supervisors and staff at the Township, we wanted to take a moment to provide an update on the Township response to COVID-19. After careful consideration, Easttown Township will be following the lead of the State and the County and keeping Township buildings and facilities closed until April 30, 2020. All Township meetings, with the exception of the Board of Supervisors meeting scheduled for April 20, 2020, are cancelled.
First and foremost, the health and safety and welfare of the residents is a top priority and will remain a top priority. Police officers, as well as fire and EMS personnel, will continue to respond to calls as normal while taking every precaution to protect themselves and the public.
Sewer and trash services will continue without any interruptions. The only change is that bulk pick-up will stop until further notice.
The parks in the Township are open for passive use, however, all playgrounds, basketball courts, and restroom are closed until further notice.
We encourage all residents to practice safe, responsible social distancing. We understand these are challenging times, and we are in uncharted territory. This will require cooperation, flexibility, and patience; and everyone has a role to play. The Township operations will function, but in a much more limited capability: emails and phone calls will be responded to. Emergency Services and vital public services will NOT be affected.
We encourage all residents to sign up for the Township’s emergency communication system (Blackboard) so that, if necessary, we can get information to you immediately. Please click on the link: https://easttowntownshipalert.bbcportal.com/ and sign up. You can also send an email to email@example.com and get on the Township mailing list which is used to send out general announcements. We encourage all residents to stay informed and stay safe.
The Township will be providing weekly updates and, if warranted, immediate notification as events unfold.
Thank you and stay safe!
Jim Oram, Chairman, Board of Supervisors
Dan Fox, Township Manager
