Today is Sunday May 24th, 2020, and I have updates to the Borough’s response to the Coronavirus. We have 116 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 8 deaths in our Community. We are moving in a great direction with little change in our positive numbers so thank you for being diligent towards stopping the spread. Be safe and use your best judgment if you are traveling to the shore this holiday weekend. You have all been doing an amazing job and I thank you for your commitment to keeping one another safe.
At this time there has been no further guidance from the Governor regarding pools or relaxing the executive order for local businesses. I have a call with him on Tuesday where the Bergen County Mayors expect further guidance.
Updates to Borough Operations are as follows:
- Beginning June 1 – both recycling and compost centers will be OPEN according to their regular schedule.
- June 3 will be bulk pick up for North/West
- Beginning June 8 garbage pickup will return to twice weekly collection at the curb.
Continue to follow the CDC guidelines: Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds; do not touch your nose, eyes or mouth; stay home and self isolate if you are ill; be honest with dispatch when calling for any emergency, wear a mask whenever you are in contact with others where you cannot social distance and always practice social distancing with a 6 foot radius. While out please pick up after your dogs and dispose of masks and gloves properly. Do not leave your key fobs in an unlocked car.
As we celebrate Memorial Day weekend I would like to thank the VFW and American Legion for their service to our community. Although our customary remembrance events have been cancelled, we can still come together to remember and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Join us on Monday at 8pm for the Fire Siren to show your support.
Further, take time to notice the many sports banners the borough has authorized the teams to hang around town. Our seniors deserve our congratulations and commemoration.
Support local, support each other. Be safe, stay well.
