city hall closure imageUpdate From Mayor Image

Thanks for bearing with us all over the last few days. Things are quite literally changing every minute, and we’re doing our best to stay ahead of the curve. While many of our operational changes will be inconvenient for the time being, they are important and necessary for the health and well-being of our employees and residents.

Effective immediately and until further notice, City Hall, the Parks & Recreation Office at Kennedy Recreation Center and the DPS Office are all closed to the general public.

Residents are encouraged to use email, telephone and the drop box at City Hall for payments. We have waived the 3% online credit card processing fee to encourage residents to make these transactions online rather than in-person. If a face-to-face interaction or service is essential (birth or death record, issuance of a permit, etc.), such interaction will only be by appointment and after confirming the individual requesting in-person service is healthy, not running a fever or feeling sick, has not recently traveled or been in an area with positive tests for coronavirus, and neither they nor any family members or individuals with whom they have been in contact are currently under quarantine.

Kennedy Recreation Center, Westfield Activities Center and the Library are all closed to the general public. Residents are encouraged to use email and telephone for any assistance or inquiries.

Although the Police Department remains open 24/7, the lobby of the Police Station will be locked. Access will only be available after contacting and receiving approval for entry by the Command Lieutenant on duty.

The Transfer Station and Drop-Off Recycling Center are closed effective March 18, 2020. Core operations and functions of the DPS will continue as normal, but with only ½ the employees working any given day due to a staggered/platoon schedule that we will be adopting due to expected increases in absenteeism for health and childcare purposes and to limit exposure opportunities among employees.

We are currently reviewing our options for holding council meetings given updated recommendations from the CDC to eliminate public gatherings of more than 50 people for the next 8 weeks, and recommendations to limit social gatherings of more than 10 people.

Stay strong, stay healthy, wash your hands, and check in on your elderly loved ones. We’ll keep you posted as things change. We’ll all get through this together.

Trenton Public Schools

The Trenton Public Schools have implemented a process to ensure that the children of Trenton will still be able to get the nourishment they would normally receive while in attendance at school. 14 meals a week will be provided via a delivery system by street location.

We have been notified by Homeland Security that in several states people are posing as Red Cross Volunteers requesting donations or offering to perform door-to-door COVID-19 testing to gain access to homes. These are NOT Red Cross Volunteers they are potential thieves trying to gain access to rob the homeowner. The American Red Cross will not be going house to house offering COVID-19 testing, nor soliciting funds door to door. If you should encounter someone claiming to be with the Red Cross, close and lock your door and immediately call 911.

All restaurants, cafes, bars, theaters in the state have been given the mandate to close to control the spread of the COVID-19 virus. These are locations where large numbers of persons gather in a single location which is currently not recommended by the CDC. With the recommendation from the CDC and growing concerns for public safety the state mandated the closures for these types of facilities.  Restaurants and food establishments can provide delivery or carry-out services but dining in has been halted as of now.
