Township buildings in Toms River are reopening to the public on Monday, May 18, 2020. Town Hall has been closed to the public since March 22, 2020. Hours are 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
All employees and visitors will be required to wear masks or CDC recommended face covering while inside any Township building. Each public counter has partitions to protect workers and residents and all counters will also be equipped with hand sanitizer.
Mayor Maurice B. Hill said, “Residents should expect that the reopening of Town Hall as well as other facilities will be a very careful process that ensures we are doing all that we can to protect the health and safety of our employees at the community at large.”
Limited public access to Town Hall will include:
- One entrance, Customers queue outside entrance, controlled by security
- Each department determines the average number of walk in customers and number that can safely be serviced at one time, given proper social distancing
- Encourage all visitors to make appointments; departments will have a protocol
- Security will maintain a log and allow access (by destination) consistent with the limits proposed by the department supervisor
The public is still encouraged to conduct business by phone, e-mail, and fax with Town Hall employees including SDL. Critical information is listed on our website, www.tomsrivertownship.com. AT this time, job applications will only be accepted on line.
“We are limiting the number of people allowed to enter the building and individual departments, rearranging furniture, requiring masks be worn at all times, and sanitizing all offices and counters in an effort to keep both employees and the public said,” added Mayor Hill.
