MESSAGE FROM MAYOR TIMOTHY J. NEMETH IN RESPONSE TO THE COVID-19
(Coronavirus) PANDEMIC

 

Stockton Borough is committed to providing quality services that prioritize the health, safety and welfare
of residents, employees and volunteers. Officials continue to follow the latest CDC (www.cdc.gov), NJ
Department of Health (nj.gov/health) and Hunterdon County Health Department
(co.hunterdon.nj.us/coronavirus.html) guidance in response to the pandemic.

In light of the emerging public health threat caused by COVID-19 and to safeguard the health of residents
and employees, the Borough will be modifying the way we conduct business. Effective immediately,
Borough Hall will be closed to all visitors until further notice.
Non-essential meetings will be cancelled in the short term. Some groups or committees may arrange to
meet by conference call in accordance with the Open Public Meetings Act. Calling instructions for the
public to attend any public meeting will be posted on the Borough website.

Healthy Borough staff will be working normal hours but the doors will remain locked. The main office is
open Tuesday-Thursday, 8 am to 12 pm. Staff can respond to questions and requests via email or by
telephone. Other services will be provided by appointment only. Please call us at 609-397-0070 to make
arrangements for the service that you need. If you have arranged to deliver or pick up a document or item,
please knock on the door upon your arrival and we will meet you to accept or deliver the document you
requested.

We request that all items or documents, including tax and utility payments, be delivered for processing
through the front door mail slot. If the item is too large for the mail slot, please call ahead and upon your
arrival to deliver the item. Do not leave any item unsecured outside the building. If you need a receipt
for payment or delivered item, please include a note with your address. It will be sent to you.

Registrar services will require special arrangements. Please contact the Deputy Registrar at 609-397-
0070/stocktondeputy@stocktonboroughnj.us for additional guidance.

Information regarding the April 2020 Borough Council and Planning Board meetings will be posted
closer to the meeting dates and after decisions are made regarding the arrangements. Should a decision to
proceed with any public meeting be made, seating arrangements will be in accordance with social
distancing practices.

We may implement supplemental measures at any time to protect the health of staff and the
general public.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work in unprecedented times to provide
community services that place the safety of the public and our employees first. Please feel welcome to
contact me at any time with any questions at all.

Thank you all. Be well.

In Memory Of

Neal

“Words cannot convey the enormity of Neal’s passing. Neal has been a member of the Stockton Fire and Rescue effort and a member of Borough Council for decades. His single handed contributions to our community will forever stand unduplicated and tower over us like the majesty of a giant sequoia.” Mayor Steve Giocondo
