Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of the public and employees while still providing services to residents, all Pennsville Township Municipal Buildings will be closed to the public beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020 until further notice.  Township Employees will still be reporting to work and remain available to you via phone and email during regular working hours.

The Township website has access to all contact information for various departments along with most forms, permits and licenses.

Drop Boxes will be available outside of the three main Municipal Buildings.

As a reminder the Pennsville Township Police are available 24/7.  For emergencies, dial 911.

Trash and Recycling will still be picked up.

Please note that these protocols are subject to change depending upon any facts found.  We fully expect additional guidance and possible restrictions being put in place by the State and County in order to ensure the health and safety of the public.

Finally, especially for those most at risk, take everyday precautions to keep space between yourself and others if you have to go out for food or medication; otherwise the best advice is to stay home as much as possible to further reduce your risk of being exposed.
