Message from Mayor Randall W. Teague, Commissioner James Mulroy & Commissioner Ryan Linhart

Dear Residents:

First, we want to thank everybody for doing all they can to help stop the spread of coronavirus. We know this disruption to our work and way of life is not easy.

The next two weeks are critical in our battle against this virus. As the number of positive cases continue to rise in Camden County and Haddon Township (18), we are asking our residents to continue practicing the social distancing guidelines recommended by the Center for Disease Control: Stay at least six feet apart, do not gather in groups, stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings. Also, please refrain from nonessential travel.

As a precaution to protect against the spread of coronavirus and pursuant to the Governor’s State of Emergency, the Haddon Township Municipal Building, and all athletic fields and playgrounds will be closed through April.

Although the Municipal Building is closed through April, Haddon Township government is fully operational. The Haddon Twp. Police and Public Works are operating under COVID-19 safety guidelines and have been issued N95 masks. Our trash collection and recycling collection services through South Jersey Sanitation are continuing on the same schedule as before. The Construction Office is accepting permit applications and inspections are being scheduled on a case by case basis. All fire, home and construction inspectors are following State mandated safety guidelines. Our employees are working remotely and coming to the office at staggered times to perform necessary responsibilities that may only be done in the office.

Today, the Governor issued and order closing all State and County Parks. Haddon Twp. will keep our parks open at this time, however, if social distancing guidelines are not being followed, we will be required to immediately close our parks.

Mayor Teague, Police Chief Cavallo, Westmont Fire Chief Medes, Hank Voigtsberger  of our Office of Emergency Management are all working together and in constant communication amongst themselves and with County officials as the crisis evolves. The Mayor is updated weekly through conference calls with Freeholder Director Cappelli, Congressman Norcross, Senator Booker and Governor Murphy. Please visit our website at www.haddontwp.com  and visit our Haddon Township Facebook page for updates.

Let’s all sacrifice now and do our part to flatten the curve and get through this difficult time together, so soon we can start getting back to normal lives. Stay well.

Respectfully,

Mayor Randall W. Teague

Commissioner James Mulroy
