Public Safety Announcement – COVID-19 Update

Posted on March 17th, 2020

Good Evening Riverside Community.

At the Riverside Township Committee meeting of March 16, 2020, the Mayor and Township Committee authorized the closure of the municipal administrative offices to the public beginning March 17, 2020 and continuing through March 31, 2020.  The employees within these offices, however, will continue to provide services via phone, e-mail, internet and mail.  Please see our website, or previous announcement, for all pertinent contact information.

The Township will continue to provide access to the drop box outside of the administrative offices located at 237 S. Pavilion Avenue and an additional drop box for all larger documents will be placed outside of the front door.  Please do not place cash in either drop box.  As a result of the office closures, the deadline for remittance of the annual animal license(s) will be extended from March 31, 2020 to April 10, 2020.  All other due dates will remain unchanged at this time.

In light of the recommended social distancing guidelines, our fields and parks are currently closed to group activities of more than 10 people.  While we understand the need to seek outdoor activities, we ask you to be mindful of your surroundings and contact with other individuals outside of your household.  Use of any fields or equipment at this time is at your own risk.

Our Public Works Department will continue to provide all customary services during this time.  We do ask, however, that you do not approach them if you have a question or concern.  Please instead contact Township Administrator Meghan Jack at mjack@riversidetwp.org or 856-461-1460 x4.

We thank everyone for the understanding and cooperation in this uncharted territory, and remind everyone that we are here to help answer any questions or concerns.  Please continue to check all Township social media for updates.
