COVID-19 Continuity of Operations Plan






·         You are encouraged to communicate with Township staff via telephone and email.  There will be NO in-person meetings with staff at the Township Offices.  This includes assistance with completing permit applications.

·         The Township Office will remain fully staffed, but access by the public will be limited to the main lobby area.  Masks MUST be worn inside the Township building, and social distancing must be observed.  In-person visits should be done only when absolutely necessary, and must be brief in nature.

·         Permits will continue to be processed and inspections conducted, but the following will apply:

o   New Permits:  Application packets can be mailed to you or the forms can be printed from our website.  Completed applications can be mailed in with the appropriate fee deposit or can be dropped off.  ALL INCOMING PAPERWORK WILL BE QUARANTEENED FOR 24 HOURS prior to being processed.

o   Plan Revisions/Form Corrections:  If you received notification that changes are needed to permit forms or plans that have previously been submitted, we encourage those revisions, supplements, and updates to be done via email to the Township Office.  Note that some printing charges may apply.  Before submitting paperwork electronically, please call the office (570-296-8455) to review the procedures.

o   Please schedule inspections with the Township (zoning, sewage, well) or Code Inspections (building) as usual, but we retain the right to delay the inspection if you or a family member are ill and the inspection requires us to enter your home.

·         Planning Commission and Parks & Recreation Commission meetings are resuming, but attendance by the public will be limited to a maximum of ten people or less depending on the number of Board members and Township staff in attendance.

·         The Board of Supervisors meetings will continue to be available via Zoom and starting with the June 16th meeting will be open to a maximum of ten people attending in-person.
