Township Offices Open Update

The Township Offices will close at noon today in accordance with the closure of the State offices and so that the Public Works crew can begin to fully clear the main roadways once the snow begins to slow/stop this afternoon.  We will reopen on Friday January 5, 2018 at 8:30 am.

The Township offices are currently open today.  In the event that there are any changes to that status, we will post notice.  Although we are open, we would suggest that you contact our offices by phone (856-461-1460 x1) rather than traveling the roadways.  In the event that you need to travel to our offices, please do so cautiously.  Thank you.
