Residents and Businesses,
Penndel Borough is following all guidance and recommendations from the CDC, PA Dept. of Health, the Bucks County Department of Health and our Emergency Management Officials in regards to the COVID-19. At this time our municipality is taking precautions and preparing for worsening situation.
Starting on Friday, December 3, Penndel Borough Hall will be open by appointment only. Call 215-757-5152 Option #1 for appointment.
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.
We have provided links below especially for this pandemic. Included is information from Federal, State, and Local officials with FACTUAL information. You can review all information and updates off these sites. Please use these sites and not rely on social media sites for factual and timely updates.
