The Council is currently working on contingency plans in the event that COVID 19 impacts our community that municipal services are not tremendously hindered. We implore that our Community follows the suggested guidance of social distancing, hygiene and health.

On March 16th, 2020, Mayor Winkler signed a Declaration of Emergency for Penndel Borough. This was a preemptive decision to open the Borough up to receiving assistance from outside organizations more quickly if the situation demands. This Declaration will be renewed as necessary.
