Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update 3/20/2020


Earlier this week, the Borough closed all parks and Recreation Facilities as well as the Danny D’Elia Bathrooms. Unfortunately, some of our young residents ignored the order and chose to climb the fence over the locked tennis court gate. Please speak to your children about adhering to the warnings to prevent the spread of the virus and maintain social distancing.
