Edgeworth Borough Green Phase Operations
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Edgeworth Borough implemented numerous measures to keep employees, residents, and the general public safe and healthy. As restrictions begin to lift at the state and county level, the Borough will take a strategic approach to resume full operations. As the situation remains fluid, with changing guidance being issued on a weekly and monthly basis, we will continue to follow the Department of Health and CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of employees and residents alike.
Borough Building and Administrative Offices:
After being closed for over two months, beginning June 8th, the Borough Building will open again to the public. We still encourage residents and contractors to make an appointment prior to arriving if possible, or to communicate via email or telephone. Please limit your in-person interaction, and be mindful of six feet of space between yourself and others. All staff and members of the public are advised to stay home if they have a temperature, feel sick, or exhibit symptoms of COVID-19. Frequently touched areas will be sanitized often. Visitors must use hand sanitizer prior to meeting with Borough employees.
Public meetings, including Borough Council, Planning Commission, Zoning Hearing Board and other meetings will resume in person beginning June 8th. The provisions of Act 15 of 2020 are still in effect at this time, and we will allow members of Council and Committees to participate remotely if they feel more comfortable doing so. Members of the public can submit questions through email prior to the meeting if they do not wish to attend in person, and the meetings will still be live streamed on Zoom through the end of June. Wash or sanitize your hands prior to coming to the meeting. When attending meetings social distancing will be required, and members of the public will be admitted on a first come first served basis. If the Council Chambers becomes too crowded for social distancing to be practical, members of the public may need to participate in the meeting on Zoom. All staff and members of the public are advised to stay home if they have a temperature, feel sick, or exhibit symptoms of COVID-19. Frequently touched areas will be sanitized often. Visitors must use hand sanitizer prior to entering the meeting.
Walker Park Restrooms:
The restrooms in Walker Park have been unlocked for public use. These restrooms are for individual use, and are sanitized on a periodic basis. Be mindful of common touch points (door handles, etc.) and use appropriate PPE. Please wash or sanitize your hands before and after use of the restrooms. All members of the public are advised to stay home if they have a temperature, feel sick, or exhibit symptoms of COVID-19.
Walker Park Shelter Rentals:
The shelters in Walker Park will resume rentals beginning on June 8th. Practice sensible social distancing while using the shelters. Wash your hands often, and bring hand sanitizer when available. Be mindful of the six feet of space between yourself and others. Due to the size of the shelters and depending on current guidelines from the state and CDC, the number of guests per shelter may be limited. Shelters will be sanitized on a periodic basis; however, we cannot guarantee that someone has not used the shelter prior to your arrival. Please continue to use proper protective measures when using the shelters. All members of the public are advised to stay home if they have a temperature, feel sick, or exhibit symptoms of COVID-19.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly at the Borough office. We continue to hold the safety of the staff and public in the highest regard and will monitor and update our policies and procedures as needed.
Thank you, and take care!
