Closure of Municipal Buildings
Published on Nov 12, 2020 at 07:50p.m.
Effective Monday, November 16, 2020, all Teaneck municipal buildings will close to the public. This is due to the most recent information received from the NJ Department of Health which shows daily COVID-19 cases have risen to numbers not seen since the peak of the pandemic in April.
All in-person township business will be conducted by appointment only. This policy is intended to reduce the transmission of the coronavirus as we deal with the second wave, and to keep our workforce and facilities safe while providing efficient and effective service to our residents and customers.
Information and a directory on how to make an appointment can be found on the Township's website. Hours of operation remain the same, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:15 p.m., and Tuesday from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The police and fire departments remain open 24 hours a day.
Public Works and the Recycling Center remain open without any interruptions in service. However, an appointment must be made if you are picking up a new recycling container. Please do not show up at the main administrative office without an appointment.
Please visit the Teaneck Public Library website https://teanecklibrary.org/ for updated information on available services.
All visitors with an appointment will be screened before admittance. A Covid Ambassador will conduct a temperature check by using a non-contact digital thermometer. Anyone displaying a temperature of 99.5 or above will be denied entry. Masks must be worn at all times. If you are not feeling well, or experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home.
The secure municipal drop box is available 24/7 and emptied every morning. The drop box can be used for all municipal business. Employees are available by telephone and email to answer questions during normal business hours.
Let’s all do our part and continue to practice safe measures to reduce the transmission and spread of the coronavirus.
