Please see this letter from the Township Manager with an update regarding Township Operations due to COVID-19.

COVID Operations Update 11 25 2020

From the Desk of the Township Manager

A recent occurrence of positive COVID-19 cases among Township staff led our leadership and Emergency Management Agency to implement the following decisions out of an abundance of caution:

  • The Township Administration Building and Tax Office staff are working remotely, answering emails and voicemails of their office phones, and doing inspections.  This situation will be re-evaluated on November 30.
  • Our public works and police departments are out in the Cheltenham neighborhoods providing their usual excellent service to our residents, schools, and businesses.
  • Drop-offs of trash, recycling, and bulk furniture to the Public Works Yard will only be available on Saturdays (10:00-2:00).  The Yard will now be open 11/28 due to this decision, though the Township calendar had marked it for holiday closing. Days/hours for the Yard will be re-evaluated November 30 as well. The Waverly Road Compost Facility hours have been reduced to a 2:00pm closing time.

Our services to residents have had a mild impact, but our staff is still working to provide service to the community! We would like to thank you, our community, for your understanding during these challenging times for the Cheltenham community, as we work to keep both the community and our staff safe and healthy.
We also thank our Board of Commissioners for their leadership and guidance navigating us through
this pandemic. We will come out better and stronger as a community when it is all over and done!
